Railway Cables EN 50264 Fire Resistant Cables Characteristics and Applications

EN 50264 fire-resistant cable is a cable designed for railroad rolling stock, with a special focus on performance under fire conditions. More details about EN 50264 fire-resistant cables can be found below:

EN 50264 Fire-resistant cables Materials and design:

  • Conductor: tinned copper wire in accordance with the relevant standards, with good electrical conductivity and corrosion resistance.
  • Insulation and sheath: Halogen-free materials are used, which not only meets the requirements of environmental protection, but also does not produce toxic gases and a large amount of smoke during combustion, which reduces the hazards to personnel in case of fire.
  • Construction: The cable may be divided into single-core and multi-core, adapting to different applications. Their design ensures the stability and reliability of the cables in extreme temperatures and working conditions.
