Benefits

  • Overall shield minimises electrical
    interference
  • Decoupling of circuits by means of
    twisted-pair (TP) design (crosstalk effects)

Application range

  • Control and signal cables for internal and external wiring
  • Process control; electrical equipment; industrial machinery; low-voltage control
  • Wiring of devices, machines and plants intended for export to the North American market or countries where primarily UL-/CSA-certified cables are used.
  • For the North American market
  • Thanks to the DIRECT BURIAL approval, direct burial of versions with the nominal conductor cross-section 18 AWG is normatively permitted in the USA

Product features

  • CMG (for USA and Canada) and PLTC (for USA) for tray use in North America (24 AWG does not have PLTC certification)
  • PLTC-ER & ITC-ER ("-ER" = Exposed Run: In the USA, unprotected transitions of the cable outside of trays, each transition with a max. length of 1.8 m or 6 ft. according to NEC/ NFPA 70) for 18 AWG
  • DIRECT BURIAL certification for 18 AWG for normatively permitted, direct burial in the USA

Norm references / approvals

  • UL: CMG per UL 444; PLTC-ER per UL 13 (18 AWG); PLTC (not for 24 AWG); ITC-ER per UL 2250 (18 AWG); UL AWM Style 2464
  • According to NEC/NFPA 70, 2014 HANDBOOK, ARTICLE 501, II., 501.10, (B), (1), apart from "Flexible Connections", suitability for Class I, Division 2 in the USA for all versions with ITC-ER as per NEC 2014 ARTICLE 727.4 and in conjunction with additional UL listed components as well as for all versions with PLTC or PLTC-ER in line with the prerequisites for use of NEC 2014 ARTICLE 725 and in conjunction with tray use and use of additional UL listed components
  • Canada: c(UL) CMG FT4, CSA AWM I/II A/B FT1
  • Oil-resistant according to UL OIL RES I

Design

  • Fine-wire strand made of tin-plated copper wires
  • Core insulation made of PVC
  • Twisted pair (TP) structure
  • Overall shielding with foil, drain wire and tin-plated
    copper braiding (75% coverage)
  • Outer sheath: Specially designed PVC, dark grey (similar to RAL 7005)
