RE-2G(st)H Cable

The RE-2G(st)H are fire resistant instrumentation cables manufactured in accordance with British and European standard BS EN 50288. They are designed to connect electrical instrument circuits and to provide analogue and digital communication services in and around processing plants such as those found in the petrochemical and power generation industries owing to their ability to withstand electromagnetic interference.

RE-2G(st)H are typically used in areas where circuit integrity is required in the event of fire. These cables' sheaths have low smoke zero halogen properties.

RE-2G(st)H Cable Construction

  RE-2G(st)H RE-2G(st)H SWAH
Conductor Stranded copper conductor (Class 2)
Insulation Silicone rubber (EI2)
Individual and collective screen (ICAM) or collective screen (CAM)

Polyester tape (PET)

Aluminium / polyester tape (AL/PET) with tinned drain wire

Inner sheath - Low smoke zero halogen (LSZH)
Armour - Galvanised steel wire armour (GSWA)
Outer sheath Low smoke zero halogen (LSZH)


Whilst the standard RE-2G(st)H is not suitable for direct burial, the armoured version is suitable for such applications.

Our RE-2G(st)H cables are available in the following variants:

Collectively screened multi-core
Collectively screened multi-pair
Collectively and individually screened pairs in metal foil (PiMF)
Collectively and individually screened triple in metal foil (TiMF)


These cables generally have a voltage rating of 300/500V, however we also supply a variant with a 90V and 500V rating. Their operating temperature range is from -30oC to +90oC.
