24 AWG Solid 4 Conductor Cables - Unshielded Non-Plenum
Type CM/CL2 - CMX Outdoor
Fire Alarm Wire 22/4 Solid CM
The fire alarm wire is used in security systems of commercial buildings and industries. Business premises require tough cables that can provide reliable security. They have a tough design that can withstand any kind of environment. The cable can operate in a wide range of temperatures roughly between -200C up to 750C for both wet and dry environments respectively. It has a voltage rating of 300 volts; therefore it is specifically intended for light weight power supply applications. The cable is available in different sizes most specifically 22 and 24 AWG; it just depends with your desires.
• Has 4 Conductors
• The conductors are color coded
• Sun resistant jacket
• It has stranded copper conductors
• Sequential footage markings on the jacket
• Maximum operating voltage is 300 volts
• Has a maximum operating temperature of 750C
• Meets various industrial standards
• Its unshielded non-plenum cable
• Oil and water resistant
• Maximum length of 500ft
• Available in 22 and 24 AWG conductor size
The conductors are made of stranded bare copper. It has four conductors and each is color coded to allow easy identification of the cable. The conductors are tough and flexible. It can easily maneuver through tight corners and constricted areas without breaking. It is resistant to corrosion, moisture and sunlight which make it durable. Apart from durability and flexibility the conductor is also affordable and you can easily purchase a roll at a cheaper price hence you don’t have to dig deep in to your pockets. It’s also reliable in transmission of current due to its amazing electrical properties.
It is available in different sizes therefore you need to be keen in selecting the right one. The color codes used on the conductors are black, red, white and green.
Its insulation is made of polypropylene. This is a thermoplastic polymer which is made through addition of a polymer in the monomer propylene. It is used as the insulation due to its high melting point of up to 1710C henceforth it is less likely to burn out in case of a fire break out. The insulation is also tough and offers the conductor protection from impact, abrasion, corrosion and crushing. Furthermore it has great resistance towards industrial solvents, chemicals and lubricants. Lastly the insulation has a thickness of up to 0.006 Inch and it’s reliable in protecting the end user from shock and other electrical hazards.
The cable jacket is made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), its grey in color. The jacket protects the cable from physical or chemical damage. It is a pressure-Extruded jacket therefore it is more resistant to staples compared to tubed jackets. PVC has an amazing resistance towards sunlight and flames. Moreover it is flexible and reliable. This enhances the flex life and service life of the cable. PVC is also resistant to chemicals, acids, high temperature, weather, impact, abrasion, lubricants, oils, moisture and
On the jacket, sequential footage markings are printed which eliminates guess work and wastage during installation. Certifications and names of the cable are also printed on the jacket. The jacket has a thickness of up to 0.014 inches.
Industrial ratings and approvals
Solid CM Fire alarm wire has been tested and approved by international agencies. These agencies include;
• UL Type CM/CL2 - CMX Outdoor / cUL Type CM/FT1
• NEC Article 725 & 800
• California State Fire Marshall
• CSA Approved
• Flame test
• Restriction of hazardous substances (RoHS) Compliant
It can be used in numerous commercial and industrial applications as long as the voltage rating does not exceed 300 volts and the operating temperature range falls within -200C and 750C. The cable can be used in power limited circuits and a communication cable for non-riser applications. Further application areas include;
• Security systems
• Single Line Telephone
• Remote control
• Intercom/ P.A. Systems
• Burglar alarms
Why go for the fire alarm wire?
The fire alarm wire is a flexible cable which makes it easy to use and work with. It is a durable cable and can last you a lifetime without constant replacements. The cable is also versatile henceforth it can be applied in other fields other than security systems. Installation of the cable is made easier due to the markings on the jacket; this reduces the time, money and labor used by contractors.
The fire alarm wire is affordable in the market therefore you get quality products at the best rates. It meets various industrial standards which prove the cable is safe for use and has the stated features. It has a tough and reliable jacket which maximizes safety due to its low smoke feature, which means when exposed to fierce flames it produces little or no smoke. Lastly the fire alarm wire can be recycled easily in case it wears out which means you don’t have to throw it away.
