Belden (St. Louis, Miss.) has developed new low-smoke, zero halogen (LSZH) jackets for some of its most popular and reliable standard cables, making them part of the company’s environmentally-friendly GreenChoice solutions. The LSZH-jacketed cables are fully-recyclable, halogen-free and meet all current environmental standards, including WEE, REACH, RoHS and Prop 65. They are also non-toxic, and can be deposited in landfills. According to the company, these cables are useful in control and instrumentation applications, such as computer equipment, CAD/CAM equipment, power supplies or wherever people are in close proximity to cabling and could be exposed to halogens. The GreenChoice product line meets the requirements of LEED Pilot Credit 54 for up to 2 LEED points per installation to help builders achieve the next level of LEED certification.
