|INSTRUMENTATION CABLES||Technical Data sheet
EGSF SHX and EGFA SHX instrumentation cables are intended for control and instrumentation circuits, for signal, monitoring and data processing systems and for analogue or digital data transmission, all in industrial electronics applications, allowing particularly for conditions met in chemical, petrochemical and paper industries.
The cables are protected by an overall electrostatic shield against external electric interferences.
Steel tape armour in EGFA SHX cables offers enhanced protection against mechanical damages and rodent attack.
The cables can also be used for power supply to small auxiliary devices on condition that current-carrying capacity limit (see our Technical Guide) is not exceeded.
The cables are suitable for fixed indoor and outdoor installations.
The cables are flame retardant and their smoke emission is low, emitted fumes are non toxic and non corrosive.
The cables are oil-resistant and offer enhanced resistance to aliphatic hydrocarbons.
