DIN VDE 0271.
The cables are in compliance with EU LVD (Low Voltage Directive) and RoHS Directive (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) and REACH (European Chemicals Regulation).
They are free of silicone, cadmium and free from substances harmful to the wetting properties of lacquers.
Cables with PVC sheath are flame retardant and self-extinguishing according to DIN EN 60332-1-2 (IEC 60332-1).
Cables with PE sheath are UV-resistant, however not flame retardant.

Cables for special applications, e.g. as a single core railway traction current cable for direct current and alternating current. Also as a return current cable in direct current systems up to 0.6/1 KV.
Preferably for connections in overhead lines and rails, for laying in pipe conduits and trough channels and directly in the ground.
The regulations and standards of the transport services apply for the selection of railway traction current cables.
