    DIN VDE 0276 part 604
  • Core identification to DIN VDE 0293-308
    and 0276 part 604
  • Cores stranded in layers
  • Overall core covering, halogen-free filling
    compound, pressed
  • Concentric conductor of Cu-bare wires with
    helix of copper tape
  • Outer sheath of thermoplastic halogen-free
    polyolefine, flame retardant
  • Sheath colour orange
  • Flame test acc. to
    DIN VDE 0482-332-3, BS 4066 part 3,
    DIN EN 60332-3, IEC 60332-3 (previously
    DIN VDE 0472 part 804 test method C)
  • Corrosiveness of combustion gases
    acc. to DIN VDE 0482 part 267,
    DIN EN 50267-2-2, IEC 60754-2
    (equivalent DIN VDE 0472 part 813)
  • Halogen-free acc. to DIN VDE 0482
    part 267, DIN EN 50267-2-1, IEC 60754-1
    (equivalent DIN VDE 0472 part 815)
  • Smoke density acc. to DIN VDE 0482
    part 1034-1+2, DIN EN 61034-1+2,
    IEC 61034-1+2, BS 7622 part 1+2
    (previously DIN VDE 0472 part 816)
  • Halogen-free; no evolution of corrosive
    and toxic gases
  • Flame retardant and hardly flammable
  • Self-extinguished and fire resistant
  • No flame propagation, therefore security
    from fire
  • Low smoke density, no darkening of
    emergency exits without hindering the
    fire extinguishing works
  • Toxicological harmless
  • No self-ignition
  • Maintenance of functionallity during the
    increased current load
  • FE 180: Insulation integrity for 180
    minutes. Tests acc.to DIN VDE 0472
    part 814 ≙ IEC 60331.
    Insulation integrity under direct
    flame propagation for the test period
    of 180 minutes.
  • E 90: Functionality of electrical cable
    systems for minimum 90 minutes. Test
    method to DIN 4102 part 12. This fulfils the
    demands of technical guide lines for fire
    protection (supplement 1 to DIN VDE 0108
    part 1).
    The functionality for 90 minutes assures
    the functional performance of
    water-pressure-rising stations for the
    supply to avoid smoke and heat in
    safety-stairs and inner rooms, ladder shafts
    and engine rooms for fire brigade lifts,
    emergency lifts for sickbeds in hospitals and
    the fire brigade lifts.
  • re = round conductor, single-wire
    rm = round conductor, multi-wire
  • AWG sizes are approximate equivalent
    values. The actual cross-section is in mm².
  • LS0H = Low Smoke Zero Halogen
Everywhere, where in case of fire human life and material assets are to be protected and safety conciousness take a special significance, e. g. in industrial complexes, power stations, communal establishment, hotels, airports, underground railway networks, hospitals and outpatients clinic (DIN VDE 0107), department stores, data processing centres, theaters, cinemas, in multi-storey buildings, public gatherings, schools etc. (DIN VDE 0108), mining works, offshore plants, leading centres, traffic communication, emergency power supply and alarm systems. Suitable for fixed installation in dry and moist rooms, in, above, on and beneath plaster as well as in masonary walls and in concrete. These cables are suitable for outdoor applications and in underground by using in conduits or tubes. For the installation in conduit all precautions must be taken that no accumulation of water can occur in the pipes.
CE = The product is conformed with the EC Low-Voltage Directive 2006/95/EC.
