BS5308 Cable Part 1 Type 1 XLPE-OS-LSOH

RE-2X(St)H

Applications

The unarmoured LSOH versions (Part 1 Type 1) are generally use for indoor installation and suitable for wet and damp areas. Generally used within industrial process manufacturing plants for communication, data and voice transmission signals and services, Also used for the interconnection of electrical equipment and instruments, the LSOH sheath can reduce toxic smoke and fume emission.
