Product information of the RE-2x(St)Y-fl (PiMF)
For transmission of analogue and digital signals in instrument and control systems, allowed for use in zone 1 and 2 group ii classified areas. Not allowed for direct connection to low impedance source, like the public mains electricity supply.
- UV resistant
- Flame retardant
The difference with the PiMF type
The RE-2x(St)Y-fl and the RE-2x(St)Y-fl PiMF both have a collective screen. The PiMF type has, as an extra, individual shields for every pair of wires in the cable.
Advantages of the RE-2x(St)Y-fl (PiMF)
The RE-2x(St)Y-fl is a flexible cable, ideal for mobile use. This means that the cable can be used several times and can be applied for temporary purposes. In addition, it is easy to handle and pliant making it easy and compact to store. Its flexibility is also an advantage for small-spaced fixed installations as smaller bends can be made. Due to the flexibility of the cable, it is easier and faster to install, which saves more time and reduces costs.
Cables that are not UV resistant will be affected when they are exposed to direct sunlight. The RE-2x(St)Y-fl is UV resistant and can therefore be used above ground in the open air. The outer sheath of the cable will not be harmed by the ultra-violet light which normally dries out a cable or causes cracks or bursts in the sheath. This will preserve the functionality of the cable.
Cables used to be responsible for spreading fire. The RE-2x(St)Y-fl is flame retardant. This means that this cable is designed in a way that it will not spread fire. Cables with these advantages are often used in buildings and at locations where people live, work and travel / move.
The RE-2x(St)Y-fl is oil resistant which means the cable can withstand aggressive oil containing substances. These substances will not affect the cable, the functionality of the cable will be maintained and the risk of irreparable damage is lower.
