Flame Retardant RG11 Coaxial Cables

Flame Retardant RG11 Coaxial Cables

 

Application

The cables are designed for CCTV, security, smoke detection and evacuation monitoring applications, where

continued functionality is required during a fire situation. Due to the zero halogen low smoke construction, this

cable is ideal for use in public, commercial and industrial environments.

Standards

Basic design to MIL-C-17
