Rolling stock cables manufactured by Huber and Suhner can now be purchased from franchised distributor, Anixter. The company will stock the Radox RSE and Radox 4GKW ranges as well as 3GKW and 9GKW cables. Both over and underground applications can be satisfied.
Anixter technical manager, Mark Fordham, said: This range of flexible insulated and sheathed cables is ozone and weather resistant, offers oil resistance and withstands temperatures from -40 to 120degreeC. They meet BS6853-1a and offer low smoke, low toxicity and halogen-free performance. These flame retardant 1,800 and 3,000V rated cables are weight optimised, RoHS compliant and easy to strip, making them suitable for connecting fixed and moving parts in railway vehicles.
These attributes also make the cables ideal for non-rail applications such as coil leads and jumper cables in applications where increased flexibility and temperature range are an advantage.
Anixter aims to use its logistics expertise, product knowledge and relationships with the rail industry to provide best-in-class supply chain management.
Huber and Suhner (UK) general manager, John Biggs, added: Anixters stock profile of our products is ideal for many customers requirements including maintenance and refurbishment. The combination of our technical expertise and Anixters logistics will give customers unmatched access to rolling stock solutions.
