High temperature flexible power cables

High temperature flexible power cables

  • FLAMEX® SI power cables are particularly recommended where high temperature is required to save cable weight.
  • Designed to conform to EN 50382, they can withstand extreme temperature (from -50°C to 150°C) while offering significant weight savings compared to regular power cables.
  • A 140°C conductor temperature is allowed for a 20,000 hours cumulative working time for 120°C types.
  • Thanks to their high flexibility these cables are easy to install in narrow space.
