For hazardous areas this flexible control cable has been constructed for closed circuit systems in accordance with VDE 0165 part 1, part 12. 2. 2. 6, which covers the requirements for the special marking (blue) of this type (hazard type -i-). The paired construction and the copper screening afford a good protection against electrical interference and ensure the transmission of data signals.
EMC = Electromagnetic compatibility
To optimize the EMC features we recommend a large round contact of the copper braiding on both ends.
CE = Product conforms with Low-Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU.
