Belden’s new HaloarrestXLink LSZH Thermoset Jackets have a lot to offer. These new jackets provide a non-toxic cable solution for many demanding industrial markets including oil and gas, utility and power generation, transportation, petrochemical and mining. The new jackets offer offer optimal oil, abrasion and high temperature resistance using a low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) compound.
The HaloarrestXLink capability can be specified for any 600V Belden instrumentation or control cable. The HaloarrestXLink Jackets will expand Belden’s instrumentation and control offerings to address safety concerns in heavy industry. HaloarrestXLink thermoset jackets do not melt at any level of heat or when exposed to flame, protecting workers and preventing damage to expensive machinery. Like Belden’s LSZH thermoplastic jackets, HaloarrestXLink thermoset jackets provide a safe, non-toxic, non-corrosive alternative for organizations that prefer to use non-halogenated products.
Belden offers two thermoset jacketing options: HaloarrestXLink-1, which is compliant with the UL-1277 Oil Res I requirement and HaloarrestXLink-2, which is compliant with the UL-1277 Oil Res II requirement. These HaloarrestXLink jackets are available for order now in North and South America.
As a leader in providing environmentally-friendly solutions to its customers, Belden has recently released two new “green” cable products: GreenChoice LSZH-Jacketed Cables and the GreenChoice PPO Hook-up Wire.
GreenChoice LSZH-jacketed cables are fully-recyclable, halogen-free and meet all current environmental standards, including WEE, REACH, RoHS and Prop 65. Halogen-free GreenChoice cables are non-toxic and can be deposited in landfills. These GreenChoice cables are particularly beneficial when installed in control and instrumentation applications, computer and CAD/CAM equipment, power supplies, audio, personal computers, POS and automotive – wherever humans or animals are in close proximity to the cables and could be exposed to halogens.
All GreenChoice cabling is available off-the-shelf in 500 and 1000 ft. put-ups. Belden also offers LSZH cables as standard products in its Shipboard product line. LSZH jackets are also available on special order for most Belden classic cables.
The Belden PPO Hook-up Wire is an environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional PVC-insulated and XLPE-insulated hook-up wire. PPO Wire also meets or exceeds the electrical and thermal characteristics of traditional products, while having the adding “green” benefit of being smaller in diameter, lighter in weight, stronger and more durable.Superior dielectric strength enables a thinner wall thickness and an OD which is up to 45 percent smaller than equivalent wires. The cable’s weight is reduced by up to 40 percent, due to PPO’s lower specific gravity/density as compared with PVC, polyethylene (PE) and XLPE insulations.
Hook-up wire is used by a broad range of OEM manufacturers and markets, including: electrical panel builders; building construction and maintenance operations; manufacturers of electrical and electronic products; computer manufacturers; and the production and assembly of appliances, furniture, automobiles, and automotive components and systems.
Whether it’s the new LSZH-Jacketed Cables or the PPO Hook-up Wire, go green—both for efficiency and the environment.
