BS 5308 Part 2 Type 2 Armoured PVC Instrumentation

Designed for process control and instrumentation use in harsh environments, BS 5308 cables incorporate GSWA armour for mechanical protection. The various screening options ensure that interference is prevented when cables are installed in an electrostatic noisy application. They can be used for indoor, outdoor and direct burial applications.
