RSCC Wire & Cable’s Exane Products Segment introduced a line of multiconductor cable products that comply with the European low-voltage directives for the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances (ROHS) and the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE). Exane-ROHS cables are not only environmentally friendly, but are also manufactured with ruggedized thermoset insulations and jackets that will not cold flow or deform under pressure. These cables pass the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 1202 Vertical Cable Tray Flame Test at 70,000 Btu/hr. They are equally suited for cold environments and pass a –55°C cold-bend test as well as the –40°C cold-impact test. Additionally, RSCC introduced two ruggedized low-voltage signal and control cables. The Exane-Torque Flex cable has been developed to allow for twisting and flexing at the same time, for installation in bridge rackers and pipe-handling systems on mobile offshore drilling units.
