Signal and energy transmission
Most sensors, actuators, pumps and systems today are still operated using conventional signal and power cables. These are used to transfer 0/4-20 mA, 0/2-10 V and pulse signals, for example. Apart from two-wire devices, all devices require a voltage supply which is transferred using power cables. These cables must be suitable for potentially explosive concepts (for example inherently safe or pressure-encapsulated).
HUBER+SUHNER has a wide range of halogen-free, fire-resistant and fire-retardant signal and power cables which can replace conventional RFOU or BFOU cables, offering both space saving and weight advantages of at least 50%.
As a result of their significantly smaller diameters, the cables are much easier to install which can significantly reduce installation costs. This is visible by the much smaller bending radii, cable glands and cable ducts. All cables meet the required approvals under NEK606 (oil resistance) as well as DNV, ABS and BV marine approvals.
The electron-beam crosslinked cable sheath surface can withstand very high temperatures. In normal operating temperatures, this results in a service life that is up to eight times longer than conventional cables.
