HW222

Application:

LifeGuard™ Low Smoke Zero Halogen cable is for use in power circuits in chemical plants, refineries, steel mills, industrial plants, commercial buildings, utility substations and generating stations. It may be installed in open air, conduit, duct, cable tray when CT rated, or direct buried in earth, in wet and dry locations. It is highly flame retardant, produces very small amounts of smoke when burned and contains no halogens. LifeGuard™ cable is ideal for applications where a high degree of safety and equipment protection is required. It is UL approved for use at 105°C for continuous operation, 140°C for emergency overload conditions, and 250°C for short circuit conditions.

Conductor

  • Compressed soft annealed copper per ASTM B-3, Class B stranding per ASTM B-8, with a semi-conducting conductor shield

Insulation

  • Ethylene propylene rubber (EPR) per ICEA S-97-682 Type III with a semi-conducting insulation shield

Shield

  • Uncoated copper tape with a 25% overlap per ICEA S-97-682

Jacket

  • Sunlight-resistant and flame-retardant, Low Smoke Zero Halogen polyolefin per UL Standard 1072 and ICEA T-33-655-1994 Section 5-4.
