ECE R118.02-Approved Data Cable

Keep bus and coach passengers safe in the event of a fire with tested, flame-resistant industrial cabling for transmitting large quantities of data at high speeds.

Belden’s data cables meet the stringent fire protection requirements outlined by the United Nations’ Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) for use in motor vehicles.


ECE R118.02-Approved Data Cable

Two of Belden’s existing data cables – BE43769.02500 and BE43802.01500 – meet the strict requirements outlined by the ECE R118.02 standard in Europe. This standard was put in place to prevent or reduce the spread of flames in case of a fire within an individual transportation vehicle, such as a bus or coach. You can feel confident knowing these cables were put to the test and passed the rigorous requirements of the ECE.


  • Meets required standards – adhere to Europe’s new safety and fire standards for the transportation industry with cabling that is tested and approved, according to the ECE R118.02 standard.
  • Balances safety and speed – protect passengers in the event of fire with flame resistant data cables that deliver on the expected data speed demands of today’s customers.
  • Installs easily – speed up installation and maintenance time with more flexible cabling that can bend around tighter corners in small spaces.
