BFOU Instrumentation NEK 606

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.

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


IEC60092-353: electrical installation in ships, power cables, NEK606: cables for offshore installation halogen-free or mud-resistant, IEC60092.375 shipboard telecommunications cable, IEC60331: fire resistant, IEC60332: flame retardant, IEC61031-1.2: smoke denisty, IEC60754-1, halogen free properties, & IEC60228: electical conductor
