Cables RCT was present at the eighty-third edition of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) meeting in Shanghai on 21st and 22nd October. This is the world’s maximum certifying organisation.
With the publication of the updated document on Directive 2011/65/EU in reference to Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) by Europacable, we would like to underscore Cables RCT’s commitment to the environmental policy and through the EU Declaration of Conformity (DOC) within the framework described in the RoSH, to certify that our products do not contain any restricted substances.
Having presented to you our catalogue of shielded cables, we describe below each one of the products that make up this range for you to consult full details of their specifications.
Electromagnetic interference has started to cause such serious problems that it has made it necessary to publish European legislation regulating the design of electrical equipment and electronics, with the aim of reducing undesired effects that are produced when interactions occur, which has been defined as the concept of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC).
In recent years, it has become increasingly common to see wireless technology being introduced across all sectors. Combined with a greater usage of electronic and IT equipment, this means that our surroundings are being routinely subjected to electromagnetic wave activity.
After speaking about the importance of counting on experts at the time of choosing and installing shielded cables in our last post, now we wish to offer you the complete catalogue that we have dedicated to them.
Do you know what a shielded cable is? When it is necessary to use them? What it is important to notice at the time of choosing a shielded cable?
Our collection of CPR classified PVC cables continues to grow, thanks to the addition of the H05V2 / H07V2-U y H05V2 / H07V2-K cables.
We are pleased to announce that our PLANAFLEX flat cables are now available, a more comfortable and easy to install option.
Our process of packaging research and innovation has identified shrink-plastic packaging as the logical successor to the cardboard box, because of the many advantages it offers.
At Cables RCT we are committed to innovation and excellence beyond just our cables, extending this philosophy to the packaging in which we deliver our orders, which has been thought out to cover multiple needs.
The IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) is responsible for standardization in the fields of electricity and electronics. The IEC currently has more than 80 members, which are national standards entities.
We are proud to present our plywood reels for cable transport and handling: lighter, easier to handle, and costing up to 60% less than traditional drums.
The UL certification mark, issued by Underwriters Laboratories, is one of the most highly recognised symbols in the United States and Canada, which makes it highly competitive in international markets.
We present our Style 1007 cable (UL), a high-tech cable with reduced dimensions for the most demanding applications, such as electrical and electronic equipment.
We are happy to announce that 100% of our PVC CPR cables are now available for purchase, offering the most extensive line on the market. Our halogen-free CPR cables are also available and ready for installation.
We want to start the new year by sharing what 2016 meant for us, with compliance with the CPR as a basis.
We are off on holiday with all our homework done and proud to finish the year in first position. From Cables RCT we wish you a merry Christmas and a prosperous 2017.
We are very pleased to have achieved the Cca-s1b, d1, a1 classification for the RZ1-K (AS) 0.6/1kV CPR family and the B2ca-s1a,d0,al classification for the H07Z1-K (AS) CPR family, thereby completing the fundamental range of construction cables.
We are proud to announce that our range of PVC cables now complies with the CPR regulation, as shown by our Declaration of Performance validated by AENOR.
Compliance with the CPR entails a very important requirement, which consists of having a "Declaration of Performance" for every product that must adapt to the new regulation. We have these documents at Cables RCT and you can consult them on our website.
In view of the importance of the changes represented by the CPR for construction materials and the complexity of the regulation, at Cables RCT we have prepared a guide that gives a step-by-step explanation of this information. Our dealers have this guide and it can also be downloaded online.
At Cables RCT we do not want anyone to have doubts with respect to the CPR and everything that surrounds it. So, we have developed a microsite where you can consult any aspect related to the CPR which sets out everything clearly and in a user-friendly way.
At Cables RCT our UL certificate product range has additions to those obtained in the past: Tri-Rated Style 1015, 1028, 1283 and 1284 Cables. Now, we add two new references: UL Style 1007 and 1569 Cables.
We are pleased to announce that we have received the 2015 award to export, presented by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Zaragoza. This is the second time that our exporting activity has been rewarded with this acknowledgement.
