657TQ / 658TQ / 6571TQ - Type SW4 Cables

Eland Cables is a leading supplier of marine power, lighting and control cables, manufactured in accordance with British Standard BS6883. Our range includes armoured (658TQ) and unarmoured (657TQ) cables designed for fixed wiring installations across all areas onboard ships and offshore units, including accommodation and open deck. It also includes the unarmoured 6571TQ, an unarmoured cable designed to prevent the risk of electric shock in the event of fault or surge.

This range of 1000V is heat and oil resistant, and flame retardant (HOFR). It is also halogen-free to reduce the risk to human life or to sensitive equipment by limiting the emission of smoke, noxious fumes and acid forming gases in the event of a fire.

The cables are designed to operate within a temperature range of -40oC to +90oC when flexed.
