16/0.2mm LSZH def-stan type signal cable

16/0.2mm LSZH def-stan type signal cable is designed for high density wiring between components and within instruments and electronic equipment. Optional foil or braid screening provides protection against electronic interference. 

These 16/0.2mm LSZH def-stan type are suitable for use in aircraft, process control systems, computers, data processors, military vehicles & military equipment. Because of the mechanical design of these cables they should not be used for direct connection to mains power supplies.

Ensures increased safety in the case of fire due to the virtual elimination of toxic fumes if burnt. Pronounced advantages when compared to PVC cabling: low fire load, low smoke emission, reduced fire propagation.

Note: low smoke zero halogen / halogen free (LSZH, LSOH, LSHF, OHLS) should not be confused with LSF (low smoke and fume), an in-depth explanation is shown on our Customer Support page.
