Approvals

 

Our MI Cable passes the UL2196 fire cable test the harshest and best possible way to test how durable a wiring system will be in fire.

This test and listing requires cables to be tested both horizontally in full scale 3 meter lengths with bends. 

The fire temperature is 1850°F  for a 2 hour exposure 

The test voltage is 347/600 volts rms  

The water spray is a high pressure firemens hose test.  

Cables are required to be tested as a system with fixings and supports as they will be installed. 

5 samples of each cable representing smallest to largest sizes are required to be tested in a horizontal mounting.

5 samples of each cable representing smallest to largest sizes are required to be tested in a vertical mounting.

Below is our full list of approvals

  • UL2196 (Standard for Tests for Fire Resistive Cables)
  • UL 514B (CONDUIT, TUBING, AND CABLE FITTINGS- Edition 6 – Revision Date 2014/11/21)
    • 2 NO. 18.3-12 (CONDUIT, TUBING AND CABLE FITTINGS- Edition 2 – Revision Date 2014/11/21)
  • UL 486A-486B (WIRE CONNECTORS- Edition 3 – Issue Date 2018/04/27)
    • CSA C22.2 NO. 65-18 (WIRE CONNECTORS- Edition 6 – Issue Date 2018/04/27)
  • UL504 (Outline of Investigation for Mineral-Insulated, Metal-Sheathed Cable)

     NEC Fire Rated Applications:

    The NEC recognizes critical electrical circuits that, in the event of a fire, must continue to perform their intended functions. NEC Article 695 and Article 700 address “Fire Pump” and “Emergency System” applications respectively.

     Both require a minimum of a 2-hour fire-resistance rating which can be achieved through various methods. This requirement applies to the following: 

    • Fire Pump Feeders
    • Emergency Generator Feeders
    • Emergency Exhaust Fans
    • Emergency Lighting
    • Exit Signs
    • Firemen’s Elevators
