Cables are fire-resistant for mission-critical applications
Ruggedised, fire-resistant circuit integrity cables have been added to the Safe-T-Line cables by Belden. The Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) -approved BS 6387 and EN 50200 cables guarantee enhanced emergency voice-alarm communications (EVAC) systems operation under extreme fire conditions.
The Safe-T-Line Circuit Integrity (CI) cables now include options to meet the three-hour CI code requirements for life-saving EVAC systems. The LPCB-approved cables are designed to meet the stringent requirements of extreme temperatures commonly associated with industrial environments.
The three-hour rated Safe-T-Line CI cables guarantee continued operability of an infrastructure’s EVAC systems, allowing system engineers to better mitigate emergencies and execute controlled shutdowns in the event of a fire or related emergency, says Belden.
Benefits include comprehensive, user-friendly termination and installation capabilities through an easy-strip design with silicone rubber insulation. There is a variety of robust cable offerings tailored to meet specific infrastructure needs.
Depending on the industrial setting, engineers and system integrators can choose between three-hour rated, shipboard two-hour rated, and easy-strip, LPCB-approved CI cables. The Safe-T-Line cables are available in versions of two, three and four conductors, in both 1.5 and 2.5mm².
The optimised resistance to intense temperatures, water and mechanical shock in accordance with British Standard (BS) 6387 and European Standard (EN) 50200 requirements, mean that the cables are suitable for applications where temperature ranges are variable, especially in building and mission-critical industrial processes, which may require controlled shutdown under emergency situations.
Belden’s industrial connectivity range address the needs of interoperability and visibility to receive, analyse and share data collated by the industrial internet of things (IIoT). With more connected machines, rising data volumes and increasing productivity demands, customers can use Belden cable and Lumberg Automation and Hirschmann industrial connectors for a communications infrastructure designed to last. Belden’s customised systems provide high levels of performance and reliability to help a wide range of industrial automation applications handle the growth of intelligent, networked devices and robust analytics.
Belden specialises in end-to-end signal transmission and delivers a product portfolio designed to meet the mission-critical network infrastructure needs of industrial, enterprise and broadcast markets.
