Belden, a leader in the design, manufacturing and marketing of signal transmission products, has introduced new halogen-free DeviceBus® Cables, two of which are steel wire armored for use in public areas and/or demanding industrial applications.
Belden has introduced a range of four new halogen-free DeviceBus cables which have been designed for use in a global environment, suitable for indoor and outdoor usage, as well as for direct burial applications.
Designed to meet both the electrical and physical requirements as laid down by ODVA, these cables comply with IEC 60332-3-24 (formerly IEC60332-3C), EN 50265-2-1 and NEC/CEC CM CL2 CM FT4 standards and regulations and enable flawless communication using the DeviceNet™ protocol and matching all existing connectivity.
Belden’s halogen-free DeviceBus 300V Class 2 cables are both FRNC (Flame-Retardant, Non-Corrosive) and LSNH (Low-Smoke, Non-Halogen). When compared to products containing halogens (such as PVC), these halogen-free cables offer considerable safety advantages.
In the event of a fire, including minimal release of toxic gases, reduced impairment of vision, no release of highly caustic acids – in short, significantly improved safety for man, nature and materials.
For harsh industrial environments where mechanical protection for cables is critical, Belden has developed a range of armored halogen-free DeviceBus cables. The SWA (Steel Wire Armoured) versions feature an inner jacket which matches the dimensions of the un-armored types.
The physical dimensions of the new halogen-free DeviceBus cables match those of standard PVC products, thus eliminating the need for special connectivity or cable-glands. The single galvanized steel wires of the armor are applied in a tension free process and are in accordance with EN 50288-1.
Tested for Public Safety
Belden’s four new halogen-free DeviceBus 300V Class 2 cables meet or exceed the following standards: IEC 60332-3-24, EN50265-2-1 and NEC/CEC CM CL2 CM FT4.
They enhance Belden’s already impressive DeviceBus product portfolio and ensure a fitting cable for all environments.
The new line is fully described, together with technical data and schedule of products, in Product Bulletin NP 119E and is available on www.belden-emea.com.
