Category: EN 50288-7 Instrumentation Cables

Product Specification

RE-2X(st)Yw or RE-2X(st)Yw-SWAYw high temperature screened instrumentation cables (unarmoured) are designed for transmission of analogue and digital signals in instrument and control systems at chemistry and petro-chemistry industry plants, power plants, natural gas and petroleum plants, etc.  

These RE-2X(st)Yw or RE-Yw(st)Yw cables are usually specially manufactured to order, therefore weights and dimensions can only be estimated at time of quoting. Suitable for indoor or outdoor installation in dry or wet environments. Versions with SWA are also suitable for direct burial applications. 

Suitable for indoor or outdoor installation in dry or wet environments. They are not suitable for direct burial applications (see armoured versions for this). 

Note: PVC is a fairly tough & flexible material but may release toxic fumes if burnt. For increased fire safety see low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) versions.
