Polyrad Ultra Wire is ideal for applications that require hish-density cable, as this cable offers both size and weight advantages. It is engineered and manufactured for both original equipment and retrofit use in electronics equipment. This cable should be utilized where environmental factors require cable characteristics to perform with a high degree of flame retardancy, excellent moisture-stable electrical values, and reliability. It is suitable for use in all types of heavy and light rail cars, rapid transit cars, and diesel-electric locomotives.
