Custom LSZH Power Cable


Custom LSZH Power Cable

A company that provides the U.S. government with solutions in federal intelligence and security fields developed an airborne sensor system for a geospatial project. The only trouble was they couldn’t find the kind of cable they were looking for on any shelf. They were going to need a custom LSZH power cable.

The customer came to Allied Wire and Cable for the custom cable job because he’d heard good things about the company from other engineers at his company.

The customer was looking for a stranded tinned copper multi-conductor power cable with a Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) polyolefin tape jacket. Common jacket materials such as PVC may contain halogens, chemicals that are normally stable but can release toxic fumes when burned. LSZH properties are critical in airborne systems because of the restricted space on an aircraft.

The custom power cable also required a specific color code to make each of the four conductors easily identifiable. Allied Wire and Cable was able to build this cable exactly to the customer’s specifications, right down to the protective overall fleece tape.
