QED QXHA1 is a high performance combined data and power cable which comes supplied in an 100m Box and is suitable for a range of home automation and lighting control systems including: Lutron Grafik Eye, Helvar, Crestron Cresnet, and AMX.
Low Smoke Zero Halogen
QXHA1 benefits from a LSZH (Low smoke, zero halogen) high performance outer jacket designed to exceed IEC60134-1, IEC60134-2, IEC60332-1, IEC60754-1 & IEC60754-2. It features an industry standard conductor colour coding (in blue) and is sequentially metre marked.
Most cables feature PVC insulation, some have a basic fire rating such as CL3, etc. Unfortunately, most cables give off hazardous toxic smoke during a fire, posing a very serious health risk. LSZH cables are made from a special compound that performs as well as PVC insulation, but crucially gives off very little smoke and no halogen toxins in the event of a fire.
Many leading architects and builders along with commercial and marine designers are now specifying LSZH spec cables as standard. Only LSZH cables meet the legislated fire specifications for boat installations. Each complete QED Professional cable design is fully tested to LSZH standards and reports are available on request.
We don't just use a fire rated jacket material over an ordinary cable assembly; each complete cable design including jacket and all internal conductors has to undergo rigorous fire safety testing.
