VDE0266 Cable

German Standard VDE 0266, developed by the Association for Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies, covers halogen-free power cables with improved characteristics in the case of fire, with reduced fire propagation and continuance of isolation for use in the containment of nuclear power plants.

VDE0266 Cable

These VDE standard cables are typically used in fixed installation cable systems requiring improved fire performance and system circuit integrity such as lighting escape routes and fire alarms. Their low smoke zero halogen properties make them suitable for use in public spaces and they help protect valuable equipment and reduce the risk to life in the event of a fire.
