Fire-zone cables resist arc tracking to reduce power malfunction

Fire-zone cables resist arc tracking to reduce power malfunction

Project description:

Tests on bundles, assemblies and harnesses over many years led to a new generation of safer fire-zone cables.

Customer challenges:

Aviation cables are traditionally fire-resistant; however increasing cable density in harnesses can create the conditions for an electric arc.

Nexans solutions:

Nexans developed a new generation of fire-resistant cable following the latest and most stringent European norms, which bring both benefits: light weight and arc-tracking resistance in bundled configurations.
