BFOU Instrumentation IEC60092-376

BFOU instrumentation cables are manufactured with either overall or individual screens, the cores are either laid

up as pairs or triples. Ideal for signal and instrumentation circuits where the fire performance and Low Smoke

Zero Halogen properties are increasingly being required within public buildings and power stations, as well as

traditional Petro/Chem industries.

The cable is designed to carry on working for a period of 3 hours when exposed to fire, according to IEC 60331

test procedure. BFOU also offers good screening properties, reducing Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI).
