Most PVC cables achieve lower classes than Eca or Dca, while high-quality cables provide Halogen-free cables considerably better performance and can achieve classes Cca and B2ca. As the requirements of Euro class Aca are too high to offer an economical product with conventional thermoplastic materials, it is not possible in practice to achieve Euro class Aca for cables.
Cables and wires with a CPR declaration of performance and thus an assigned CPR class are primarily used in construction works. Depending on the safety requirements of the construction, a higher CPR class may be required. The variety of CPR-classified cables that we at LAPP can offer you for a wide range of applications is particularly noteworthy.
The classic of the CPR-classified power and control cables are our ÖLFLEX CLASSIC 100 H and ÖLFLEX CLASSIC 110 H cables, which, thanks to their halogen-free materials, exhibit outstanding behaviour, especially in the event of fire, and are also available shielded in the CH variant.
CPR-classified cables are primarily used, but not exclusively, in construction works. This ETHERLINE® PN CAT.7 FRNC FLEX A is, for example, a data cable that can be used to wire buildings and control cabinets in PROFINET networks. Another area of application is our ÖLFLEX® HEAT 125 C MC, a control cable with DNV-GL certification for maritime use.
