HUBER+SUHNER offers a new generation of the RADOX® EN 50306 300V and RADOX® TENUIS-TW 600V cable families. These thin, lightweight cables for railway do have new electron-beam crosslinked insulation materials with extreme resistance to chemical, electrical and mechanical loads.
Because of the rising number of electrical equipment installed in trains, there can be installed between 40 and 80 km of cable per 100 metre length of train. This makes use of space and weight of cabling a critical factor. So there is a high demand for cable that is as thin-walled and lightweight as possible, without reduction in the required fire protection. For the current demands of the railway market HUBER+SUHNER developed these cable solutions, which are also particularly stable under extreme loads.
These extremely thin and light products of the cable families RADOX® EN 50306 300V and RADOX® TENUIS-TW 600V are insulated with RADOX® EI 306 electron-beam crosslinked material and RADOX EM 104 sheath material. Thanks to their extreme robustness, these cables perform reliably, guarantee a long life and therefore minimise life-cycle costs. They also meet the strict environmental requirements of EN 50306 and all the fire safety specifications of EN 45545-2, DIN 5510-2, NFF 16-101 and NFPA 130.
HUBER+SUHNER is already well-known for its electron-beam crosslinked RADOX® insulation and sheath materials. These are particularly resistant to chemical, electrical and mechanical loads. They do not melt even at extremely high temperatures and remain dimensionally stable even in the case of short circuiting. They also withstand extremely low temperatures.
In addition to the extremely robust construction of this new RADOX® generation, these cables offer customers further advantages: customers can, with one single product family, serve countries with different fire protection requirements and a variety of applications. A new core design means that the cables can also be stripped even more easily and rapidly. This saves installation time and therefore cuts costs.
