Be sure to have the correct fire alarm cable to support your fire alarm system. Fire alarm cable is designated by the NEC Article 760 according to its permissible applications. The NEC rates the cable: FPLP, FPLR, or FPL based on the fire alarm cable’s fire reducing characteristics. FPLR shielded fire alarm cable is a power limited riser cable intended for installation in vertical, floor to floor applications, but not in air ducts. FPLR shielded fire alarm cable must pass rigorous testing in order to meet the FPLR designation. The shielding around the conductors will protect it from any electrical noise.
Riser Alarm Cable for Fire Alarm Monitoring
This type of fire alarm cable is designed to quickly self-extinguish in a blaze, while generating a low quantity of smoke. Our power limited FPLR shielded cables comply with NEC section 760 and works with fire alarm systems. Our FPLR riser cables are constructed of 2 to 6 solid copper conductors and a low-smoke PVC jacket which is a flame resistant material. This type of alarm cable runs from floor to floor in multi-story buildings. Our Fire Alarm Cable,18 gauge and 2 bc conductors.is a FPLR cable that works with fire protection system. Some common applications for using fire alarm wires would be smoke alarms, voice communication, fire alarm system, microprocessor controlled systems, pull boxes, burglar alarms, wiring of fire alarms, and fire protective circuits.
We carry theShielded 14 gauge 2 conductor Riser (FPLR) Fire Alarm Cablefor power limited applications. It is constructed with two solid bare copper conductors measuring 14 gauge and is covered with an aluminum mylar shielding. This 14/2 AWG CMR fire alarm cable also consist of a PVC jacket which resists burning and spreading smoke or flames from floor to floor. The shielding helps maintain signal strength and reduce electrical noise when installing FPLR cable near power lines. This FPLR fire alarm cable is ideal for fire protection, alarm and signal wiring, as well as for motion and smoke detection devices.
