Fibre-optic cable secures data transmission during a fire for 3 hours
Radox fibre optic cables offer high temperature stability, high mechanical and abrasion resistance as well as industry leading fire performance and good fluid resistance. They maintain their form during short-term contact in high temperature conditions (eg. molten metal splashes or welding sparks) and feature good bend resistance at low temperatures.
The cables are halogen free, generate low smoke and emit no corrosive acid and no toxic and corrosive gases. In the event of a fire the cable continues to transmit data for at least 180 minutes (fire test with circuit integrity, according to IEC 60331-25).
The Radox brand was developed by the company using its own plastic materials where the material molecules are linked three-dimensionally by electron-beam cross-linking. These highly resilient fibre optic cables fulfill the optical transmission requirements of ISO/IEC 11801 and IEC 60764-3-12. They are also fully compliant to CEN/TS 45545-2 for fire safety in railway applications.
