APPLICATIONS

NHXHX FE180 PH90/E90 0,6/1 kV , NHXHX-J 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 oil-resistant and designed for frequent contact with petroleum products, as in petrol stations and stores, where engine fuels and lubricants are pumped or handled.

The cables are suitable for fixed indoor and outdoor installations also for direct earth burial. Cables are UV radiation resistant.
