ECE R118.02-Approved Data, Coax and Microphone Cables

Keep bus and coach passengers safe in the event of a fire with tested, flame-resistant industrial cabling.

The United Nations’ new fire protection standards for cabling used in the European transportation industry is designed to improve passenger safety. Belden offers data, coax and microphone cables that meet the strict requirements of the Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) for use in buses and coaches.

These ECE R118.02-approved cables balance safety with speed – offering fast data transfer rates (up to 10 Gb/s) housed inside a fire-resistant jacketing. The cables’ flexible nature also enables them to be easily installed in small spaces and bent around tight corners.
