Fire retardant halogen free cables for special applications

CONSTRUCTION :
Specially constructed using halogen - free,
low smoke, fire retardant compounds / materials.

MAIN CONSTRUCTION :
- The formation of smoke & toxic fumes must be avoided in order that personnel can be evacuated quickly & safely.
- Acid fumes must be avoided in order that valuable equipment is undamaged.
There are two main types with improved fire properties which are associated with different test methods :
a) Halogen free cables with reduced fire propogation (Fire Class : IEC 60332)
e.g. : NHXA, NHXMH, NHXHX

APPLICATION:
Mass transit systems, in commercial or public buildings i.e. banks, hospitals, where large number of people gather in confined areas or the formation of smoke & acidic fumes present particular problems.
b) Halogen - free cables with circuit integrity under fire conditions (Fire class : IEC 60331)
e.g. NHXMH-FE..., NHXHX-FE...

APPLICATION:
Alarm circuits, emergency lighting, safety shut-down systems where the essential parts of electric systems have to continue to function during the fire.
