HW321

LifeGuard™ Low Smoke Zero Halogen* cable is for use in power, control and lighting circuits in a broad range of commercial and industrial applications. The impervious armor provides maximum conductor protection and prevents the entrance of water, gas and corrosive elements into the electrical core. The LifeGuard™ jacket is highly flame retardant, produces very small amounts of smoke when burned and contains no halogens. It is ideal for applications where a high degree of safety and equipment protection is required.

LifeGuard™ cable is UL listed, Type MC-LS per UL 1685 and approved for installation indoors or outdoors, aerially, in conduits, ducts, cable trays and direct burial in circuits not exceeding 600 volts. It may be installed in temperatures as low as -30°C and used in hazardous locations. It is UL approved for continuous operation at 90°C in wet and dry locations, 130°C for emergency overload conditions, and 250°C for short circuit conditions. Impervious continuously welded and corrugated aluminum armor is recommended as an economical alternative to wire in conduit systems.
