The H07Z-K is a halogen-free, single core cable with a copper conductor. Its applications include being used in ducts or as internal wiring within equipment or appliances with a maximum operating temperature of less than 90 degrees Celsius.More Information
A noteworthy benefit of using H07Z-K is that it offers significant protection for human life and its surroundings should a fire occur. As no halogen or corrosive acid is released during a fire, its surroundings will not be at risk of additional damage.
For its construction, the H07Z-K is simply made up of 2 separate components, its core conductor and the single layer of insulation. The conductor of the H07Z-K halogen-free consists of fine-wire strands that are made from bare and flexible Class 5 copper wires.
The insulation for H07Z-K is known as a LSZH insulation, or a Low Smoke Zero Halogen insulation. It’s a Type EI5 thermosetting insulation. Its insulation shares similar properties with plastic, which gives it some flame-retardant characteristics.
The H07Z-K halogen free, copper conductor cable has many applications. Its key, defining feature is that little smoke and no halogen is released when a fire occurs. Therefore, the H07Z-K cable is suitable for use in environments where smoke and toxic fumes that are released due to a fire can threaten human lives or cause damage to the property. This is of particular importance, to avoid electronic equipment from coming into contact with corrosive gasses.
They can be installed in pipes, ducts or the internal wiring of electrical appliances that don’t exceed operational temperatures of 90 degrees Celsius. It can be installed in and under plaster.
In terms of devices, H07Z-K cables are commonly used in Singapore to wire lamps, devices, cabinets to store switchgears and even distribution boxes. They are often used in tandem with electric devices, as they are free from halogen and will cause minimal damage during a fire.
H07Z-K cables, as they cause less damage during a fire, are well-equipped to be used in densely populated buildings, or in buildings where valuable appliances or objects are housed. Such buildings include government or corporate spaces in Singapore, or even public areas where human traffic is high.
