IDH – Meeting new standards

The National Wiring Regulations now require that a full sized and insulated (G/Y) earth wire replaces the previously reduced size, bare CPC. It also requires that all PVC and LSHF sheathed cable for fixed wiring applications is manufactured containing an insulated earth core which is the same cross sectional area as the other conductors in the cable.

IDH prides itself on leading the way in developing and obtaining approvals for innovative low voltage power cables and both the new 201Y™ CPC insulated earth cable and the new 201B™ Fumeguard™ CPC insulated earth cable meet the new Irish standard.

Now in stock, the new 201Y™ and 201B™ are the latest additions to IDH’s product line-up that also includes fire resistant single core, standard and enhanced Kilflam™ cables; the original IS273 pre-wired conduit Guardian™ cable; and the broadest range of low smoke halogen free low voltage Fumeguard™ cables, including 2491B, 6242B, 6491B and 381_B.
