Note: The current carrying capacity is under the situation of laying the single cable in air.

Features:

  • In Continuous exposure of UV radiations the cable has excellent weathering properties.
  • Halogen free hence in case of fire, it does not emit toxic material and generates only low smoke.
  • Fire Retardant.
  • Very Flexible – Easy Installation as it is made of Stranded Conductors.
  • Withstands high temperatures.
  • Customized designs available - Chemical or EBM Crosslinking.
  • Life time over 30 years under harsh environment.
