New generation of RADOX® cable offers thin, lightweight cables with extreme resistance to chemical, electrical and mechanical loads
HUBER+SUHNER to present new thin-wall signalling cables
HUBER+SUHNER presents its latest generation of RADOX® EN 50306 300V and RADOX® TENUIS-TW 600V cable families with new electron-beam crosslinked insulation materials. The company is responding to current market demands and using its many years of experience in the development and production of cables for the railway market. These very lightweight, thin-walled products are also particularly stable under extreme loads.
As the amount of electrical equipment installed in trains rises, so does the need for an increasing number of cables. Today, there can be between 40 and 80 km of cable installed per 100 metre length of train. This makes use of space and weight of cabling a critical factor. As a result there is a high demand for cable that is as thin-walled and lightweight as possible, without reduction in the required fire protection.
HUBER+SUHNER’s new generation of cable families, the RADOX® EN 50306 300V and RADOX® TENUIS-TW 600V are a direct response to this market demand. The extremely thin and light products are insulated with RADOX® EI 306 electron-beam crosslinked material and RADOX® EM 104 sheath material.
Electron-beam crosslinked sheath materials
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.
