Class of tolerance

The importance of industry standards is, that it ensures traceability and constant quality of products. The following industry standards are defined; IEC 60584-1 class 1, IEC 60584-1 class 2, IEC 60584-1 class 3, ASTM E230, ASTM E230 special limits and ‘class 1 on best effort basis’. Not all types of cable can be produced according to a certain type of class. Please contact us to get informed according to which norm, your specific cable is supplied.
