In measurement and control engineering. Intended for use when modern process computers have to process large volumes of data, e.g. high-capacity computer systems in waste incineration plants or sewage treatment plants. These cables are suitable for fixed installation in dry or damp rooms, and the version with a black outer sheath can also be used outdoors or for direct burial.
