For fixed installation or flexible application, with free movements without forcing which do not constantly recur and without tensile stress, for high mechanical strain. As a measuring and control cable primarily in machinery and plant construction, in building and air-conditoning systems, at the warehouse and conveyor systems, in ship-building and in the renewable energies such as in the construction of wind power stations. Especially well-suited for use in public buildings, such as airports and train stations, where personal injuries and subsequent damage must be prevented in the event of a fire.
