MIL-DTL-24643/46 (LS2WAU, LS2WA)

The M24643/46 cable is a low-smoke, zero-halogen shipboard cable. It is suitable for watertight, non-flexing services. This Mil-Spec cable features stranded and paired bare copper conductors, Cross-Linked Polyethylene (XLPE) insulation, and an LSZH cross-linked Polyolefin (XLPO) jacket. It also features an overall tinned copper braid shield and is available with an aluminum braid armor. This cable is ideal for use in shipboard combat systems, interior communications, and lighting and power applications that do not exceed 600V. The Mil-DTL-24643 Mil-Spec covers cables suitable for use in shipboard, communications, instrumentation, and electronic applications.
