Application

BS 5308 cables are designed to carry communication and control signals in a variety of installation types including those found in the petrochemical industry. The signals can be of analogue, data or voice type and from a variety of transducers such as pressure, proximity or microphone. Part 1 Type 1 cables are generally designed for indoor use and in environments where mechanical protection is not required. 


Standard

BS/PAS 5308, BS EN 60228, BS EN 6234, BS EN 50363, BS EN/IEC 60332-1, BS EN/IEC 60332-3-24.
