chartwell 1215These extremelife-60 cables from TURCK Chartwell remain flexible enough to work down to -40°C, and carry UL -60°C cold bend and UL/CSA -40°C cold impact listings, as well as an FT4 flame rating. They are available in a wide variety of AWG sizes, constructions, conductor counts and cable jacket colours. In addition to its cold bend, cold impact and flame ratings, the extremelife-60 cables also have ITC and PLTC approval from UL, as well as CIC approval from CSA, which makes these cables code compliant for NEC and CEC Class 1 Division 2 hazardous location applications. Furthermore, the extremelife-60 cables carry Oil Res I and Oil Res II approvals and are UL listed for exposed run (ER) and direct burial. This means the cables pass the exacting crush and impact tests as metal clad cable, but without metal cladding. The flexiblecable jacket will not break or crack when pulled or bent in extreme cold, and holds a UL/CSA listing and hazardous location rating.
