As the pioneer in developing the 940801 Transit Specification, we offer a wide line of wire and multi-conductor cables made with Aerospace grade ETFE that are designed for long life in harsh environments. We use stranded wires that can be rated up to 2000 Volts. Our cables meet Transit Industry Standards such as AREMA’s Signal Manual Parts 10.3.14 and 10.3.24 and meet requirements for Smoke-NFPA 258, Flame Propagation per IEEE 383, IEC 332-3 Flame Tests. Our products are continually subjected to test qualifications including: aging, heat distortion, flammability, smoke density and toxicity, corrosivity (copper mirror test). Based on Thermal Aging Arrhenius Curves, the ETFE wire and cable have a 40 year service life at 115°C continuous operating temperature. Our 150°C AREMA cables require less space and offer higher cut-through and abrasion resistance when compared to rubber cables. Cable USA products are specifically designed and engineered to withstand the effects of:
Beyond Signal & Control we support the Transit market with products such as Rail Heat & De-Icing Cables, Retractable Communication Cords, High-Performance Data Cables, Miniature Condition Monitoring Coax and Cables and numerous Direct Burial and Power constructions, most of which, can be manufactured using our Low Smoke, Zero Halogen (LSZH) or Low Smoke, Low Halogen (LSLH) compound technologies.
We have worked with numerous companies such as Installers, Engineering Firms, Assembly-Houses, OEM’s and the Transportation Authorities in effort to provide a safe, secure, and reliable public transportation system.
