Joint Europacable – ECI campaign on fire resistant cables on safety equipment

Europacable & European Copper Institute have launched a campaign on fire resistant cables on safety equipment.

Cables providing electrical power must guarantee they function under extreme temperatures to allow building occupants time to escape.

Cable sizing for fire conditions is different from normal operating conditions because electrical resistance increases sharply as temperature rises. A correction factor must be introduced then.

This is why electrical professionals need to use the appropriate cable sizing calculation method.
