LAPP Introduces New Extreme Temperature Cables

LAPPcables 400x275

August 17, 2022

LAPP North America, which manufactures cables, connectors, glands and other industrial communication solutions for factory automation, has announced the ÖLFLEX HEAT 260 SC heat-resistant single-core industrial cable now carries UL AWM certification /cRU AWM A/B. Designed for applications that are subject to extreme temperatures, the ÖLFLEX HEAT 260 SC cable features polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) insulation to provide exceptional resistance to acids, alkalis, solvents, oils, other chemicals and UV exposure.

Rugged construction allows ÖLFLEX HEAT 260 SC to resist cracks during frequent ambient temperature fluctuations while exhibiting a wide temperature range of -190°C to +260°C, with a UL/CSA rating of up to 200°C, LAPP said. The cable also maintains high elasticity and tensile strength, with a minimum bending radius of 10x OD and a fixed installation bending radius of 4x OD. 

Flame retardance ratings include:

  • IEC and EN 60332-1-2
  • UL Horizontal Flame Test
  • CSA FT1

The silver-plated copper-stranded conductors come in 7-, 19- or 37-wire AWG sizes. In addition, ÖLFLEX HEAT 260 SC is now available with UL AWM certification (AWM Style 11486 acc. to UL 758), with cross sections from 28 to 12 AWG.

LAPP said that thanks to the series’ small diameters, ÖLFLEX Heat 260 SC single-core cables are well-suited for space- and weight-constrained applications in mining, chemicals, refineries and metal fabrication industries as well as any environment with extreme temperature variations.
