Flame retardant according to ECE R118: PURtronic-UL-Flex/FRNC control cable

Kabeltronik is expanding its proven PURtronic product family with UV and weather-resistant PUR jacket by a new type: the flame-retardant PURtronic-UL-Flex/FRNC.

PURtronic-UL-Flex/FRNC was designed primarily for use in measurement, signalling and control technology.

Thanks to the robust PUR jacket and the flexible design, the cables are suitable for all applications with high mechanical stress and high requirements to mobility, e.g. in automation or in tool and machine construction. The mPPE core insulation also guarantees very good soldering behaviour.

A special trump card of PURtronic-UL-Flex/FRNC is its fire behaviour: Core insulation and cable sheathing are made of FRNC materials (flame retardant - non-corrosive), which also meet high requirements for fire behaviour and the formation of corrosive gases.

So have the cables not only passed the flame test VW-1 (UL) and the fire test according to IEC 60332-1-2 A. The flame test according to ECE R118 was also successfully completed, so that PURtronic UL Flex/FRNC cables are ideally suited for use in motor vehicles, especially buses.

The cables have UL AWM 21223 (80°C 600V) approval for the external connection of electronic devices and are suitable for use both indoors and outdoors thanks to their UV and weather-resistant jacket.

You will find the cables in the dimension AWG 26 (~0.14 qmm) with 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 cores in a shielded and an unshielded version in our online shop. The shielded version has a copper twist shield, which offers the highest possible shielding with a high degree of flexibility.
