EM KNPEE/F is an eco-friendly product with a flame retardant polyethylene jacket.
(EM denotes eco-, flame-retardant material.)

Features

Applications
Instrumentation cables are for low-voltage circuits
(60V or less), used for wiring in the automatic
controls of various production equipment in
factories and in centralized control systems as
well as circuits for office computer systems.
KN Series instrumentation cables from Nihon
Electric Wire & Cable support a wide range of
uses, from factories to offices.

Structure (KNPEV-SB)

KNPEV-SB with standard specifications has the
following outstanding features.
Workability
♦ Tin-coated annealed copper for the conductor prevents
bad connections caused by corrosion.
♦ Identification of entire core prevents wiring errors and
simplifies connection work.
♦ Inserted drain wire makes ground wiring easy.
♦ Excellent flexibility due to use of a lead-free, highly
flexible vinyl compound for the jacket and a braided shield
structure.

Electrical Properties
♦ Polyethylene with superior electrical properties is used for
insulation.

Conductor
(tin-coated annealed copper
stranded conductor)

Noise Resistant

Twisted pair
Insulation
Drain wire

♦ Double shielding—AL/PET tape applied under tin-coated
annealed copper braided shield—and a twisted pair
structure prevent noise caused by electrostatic induction
and induction between circuits (cross talk).

Flame Retardant
Stranded group
AL/PET tape

♦ Cable passes UL VW-1 (vertical-specimen flame test) for
flame retardance.

Heat Resistant
Shield (braided)

♦ Heat resistant property of the jacket maintains cable
stability under high temperatures.

Oil Resistant
Jacket

♦ Consideration of oil resistance in the jacket enables the
cables to be used in locations such as factories, where
cutting oil and lubrication oil are likely to adhere to
surfaces.
