318B Cable




318B LSZH Control Cable

318B Cable Applications

The 318B is used for panel, conduit and general wiring applications where there is a requirement for flexibility and in the event of fire there is a need to minimise the risk from smoke and toxic fumes but circuit integrity is not required.

318B Features

The 318B cable emits less than 0.5% Hydrogen Chloride (HCI) in accordance with BS 6425 Part 1 and IEC 60754 Part 1
