Detailed description

(N)HXH FE180/E30, (N)HXH FE180/E90 are fire-resistant halogen-free power cables with copper conductors, ceramic-forming silicone rubber insulation and a halogen-free sheath with low gas and smoke emission.

Applicability scope

Fire-resistant halogen-free cables (N)НХН FE 180/E30, (N)НХН FE 180/E90 are intended for transmission and distribution of electricity in stationary electrical installations, for connecting electrical appliances, apparatus, assemblies of electrical switchgear for a rated alternating voltages of 0.6 and 1 kV with a frequency of 50 Hz. They are used at facilities with increased fire safety requirements to ensure the operability of electrical equipment, which is necessary for rescue operations during a fire (for example, when installing fire extinguishing pumping stations, fire warning and extinguishing systems, emergency lighting, elevators, ventilation and others) and in places of mass use (educational and medical institutions, hotels, train stations, airports, metro and others). They are used for laying in dry and damp rooms, flexible hoses, pipes, tunnels and other cable structures without the risk of mechanical damage and, if necessary, to ensure the operability of the cable during a fire.

Cables are classified as resistant to flame propagation, provided they are single-laid and when laid in bundles, and do not emit toxic gas and other harmful substances when exposed to fire.

Design

At the heart of the design of (N)НХН FE 180/E30, (N)НХН FE 180/E90 are copper round single-wire or multi-wire conductors of 1, 2 or 5 flexibility class of various cross-sections. Insulated conductors are stranded into a core. The insulation is made of a non-combustible composition – ceramic-forming silicone rubber, and the shell is made of halogen-free polymers. Such a sheath allows the cables not to sustain combustion for 30 minutes for cable (N)НХН FE 180/E30 or 90 minutes for cable (N)НХН FE 180/E90, and also emits a minimum amount of smoke and gas during a fire.

To get more detailed information about the design and marking of cables, the selection of the conductor cross-section, taking into account the load power, as well as additional advice, you can contact the specialists of EUROPAN LLC.

Operation

Operating temperature range of cables (N)НХН FE 180/E30, (N)НХН FE 180/E90 is in the range from -50°С to +50°С. The maximum permissible air humidity at which the cables perform their functions is 98% at a temperature of +35°С.

Installation of cables without preheating is permissible at a temperature not lower than -15°С.

The bending radius during installation is at least 10 outer cable diameters for single-conductor cables and 7.5 for multi-conductor cables.

The long-term permissible heating of conductors during operation should not exceed +90°С, in emergency mode +130°С, and in case of a short circuit +250°С.

The service life of the cables is 30 years. The guaranteed service life is 3 years.

On the website of EUROPAN LLC, you can select and buy fire-resistant cables (N)НХН, (N)НХСН, (N)НХBН that meet international quality requirements and are certified in accordance with Ukrainian legislation. And our managers will advise you on technical characteristics, prices and conditions for ordering products.
