Product information of the RE-2x(St)YSWAY-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
- Steel Wired Armour (SWA)
The difference with the PiMF type
The RE-2x(St)YSWAY-fl and the RE-2x(St)YSWAY-fl PiMF both have a collective screen. The PiMF type has, as an extra, individual shields for every pair of wires in the cable.
Applicable in ATEX zones
Cables used in ATEX zones need to comply with certain (construction) requirements. The RE-2x(St)YSWAY-fl meets these requirements. We will give you two examples. Empty spaces between the cores are not allowed as this makes the transportation of flammable liquids and gasses possible. Therefore, the bedding or the inner sheath of the cable needs to be pressed. Another requirement is that the outer sheath of the cable must be made of an elastomer, a thermoplastic or a thermoset material.
Advantages of the RE-2x(St)YSWAY-fl (PiMF)
Cables that are not UV resistant will be affected when they are exposed to direct sunlight. The RE-2x(St)YSWAY-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)YSWAY-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.
Steel Wired Armour (SWA)
The armouring of steel wires protects the cable from physical elements. Sharp edges and stones can affect cables and in case of underground cables digging equipment might hit the cables. The armouring strengthens the RE-2x(St)YSWAY-fl and it will limit the damage inflicted by physical elements. The cable will maintain its functionality afterwards.
The RE-2x(St)YSWAY-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.
