LS0H (Low Smoke Zero Halogen) insulation 90°C and UNILAY conductor Halogen Free Flame Retardant Cable – Non-Toxic & Non-Corrosive. Does not propagate flame & fire
This cable is ideal for use in domestic appliances, electrical switchgear, industrial lighting, control panels, wiring of switchboards, control, general wiring, instrumentation and communication systems. Used where LS0H (Low Smoke Zero Halogen) is needed and where higher current rating are required. In western countries it is mandatory to use these LS0H cables in Auditoriums, Hospitals, Hotels, Schools, Stadiums, and all constructions for public usage.
Conductor : Thin strands of Electrolytic Copper are multi-drawn for uniformity of Resistance, Dimension and Flexibility. The drawn strands are uni-laid with high precision and compacted. Thus forming a perfectly circular conductor which enables reduction in overall diameter for space saving in high density wiring.
Conductor Speciality : The strands do not get cut when stripping the insulation. The conductor offers perfect contact at pins, terminals and sockets. Thus, eliminating spot heating and sparking.
Insulation : Polyolefin cross linked EI5 to BS EN 50363-5 Low smoke Zero Halogen (LS0H).
Insulation Conformity : EN 60332-2-1 & 3, EN 60754-1 & 2
Colours : Red, yellow, blue, black, green, grey, white
Marking : The cables are marked ‘FIREX LS0H’**
Packing : 90 mtrs. Coils packed in protective cartons.
Standard : BS EN 50525-3-41
Temperature range : -15°C to +90°C
The insulation does not burn readily. It does not melt and drip, smoke is negligible, transparent, non-toxic. In a fire situation the people trapped in fire do not suffocate. This facilitates fire fighting and rescue operations. This cable has extended service life against the conventionally used cables.
