PURtronic-UL-Flex/FRNC: flame retardant according ECE R118

New cables from kabeltronik for applications with high mechanical and thermal stress


kabeltronik extends its proven PURtronic®-Product family with UV- and weather-resistant PUR-jacket by a new cable: the highly flame retardant PURtronic-UL-Flex/FRNC.

PURtronic-UL-Flex / FRNC was designed primarily for use in measuring, signaling and control technology. Due to the robust PUR-jacket and the flexible structure, the cables are suitable for all applications with high mechanical stress and high demands on flexibility e.g. in automation or in tool and machine building. In addition, the mPPE insulation guarantees a very good soldering performance.


An extra advantage of the PURtronic-UL-Flex / FRNC is its fire behavior: insulation and jacket are made of FRNC materials (flame retardant - non corrosive), which also meet high requirements for fire behavior and the formation of corrosive gases. The cables pass the UL VW-1 flame test and the fire test according to IEC 60332-1-2. A flame test according to ECE R118 was also successfully completed, so that the PURtronic UL-Flex / FRNC cables are excellently suited for use in motor vehicles, especially buses.


The cables are approved to UL AWM Style 21223 (80 ° C 600V) for external connection of electronic equipment and are suitable for use both indoors and outdoors thanks to their UV and weather-resistant jacket.


Available are cables in the dimension AWG 26 (~0,14 sqmm) with 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 conductors in a shielded as well as an unshielded version. The shielded version has a spiral shield, which offers the highest possible shielding combined with high flexibility.
