Habia Cable launches new wires and cables for explosive environments

Article Type: New products From: Microelectronics International, Volume 25, Issue 3

Habia Cable launches a range of cable products to meet the requirements of the EU safety legislation based on the European Directive 94/9/EC, known as ATEX. The acronym stands for “Atmosphere explosive” from the original French legislation. The cables can be free of voids with anti-static jackets making them suitable for many ATEX applications.

The cables are designed according to specific customer requirements and the explosion risk zone in which they will be installed. The designs are based on Habia’s range of thin wall primary insulations and flexible jacket materials.

Design requirements that can be accommodated include:

  • low friction, anti-static cable jackets;

  • void-free designs with silicone or thermoplastic filling material; and

  • flame propagation characteristics according to IEC 60332-1-2.
