|FIRE RESISTANT HALOGEN FREE POWER CABLES||Technical Data sheet
NHXCH FE180 PH90/E90 0,6/1 kV fire resistant and halogen free power cables, are intended for power supply to fire protection equipment in objects of sharp fire protection requirements, particularly in fire alarm and fire automatic control systems.
The cables shall be applied in locations where, in case of fire, higher safety for human beings and expensive electronic equipment is required.
Functions of the cables are maintained – power is supplied to equipment which must operate in fire conditions and during fire fighting (e.g. water pumps in fire extinguishing systems, smoke removing fans, emergency lighting and elevators).
The cables are certified by Scientific and Research Centre for Fire Protection - National Research Institute (Centrum Naukowo-Badawcze Ochrony Przeciwpożarowej - PIB) at Józefów.
The cables are flame retardant and their smoke emission is low, emitted fumes are non toxic and non corrosive.
The cables are resistant to water in accordance with EN 50200 Annex E and can be used in fire protected rooms with fixed pressure water spraying fire extinguishing systems (sprinkler zones).
The cables are suitable for fixed indoor and outdoor installations. UV radiation protection is required for outdoor installations. Laying cables in water or direct earth burial are only permitted if additional protection is used.
