PES/IAS: NFPA 130-2017 Conforming Cables to the Standard
February 27 @ 11:45 am - 1:00 pm EST
Passenger rail systems are found in countless countries around the world. They remain one of the most efficient and affordable methods for transporting large communities of people. Since 1983, rail systems have been the subject to NFPA 130, an international fire safety standard for fixed guideway and transit systems.
NFPA 130 lays out a number of rules and guidelines in order to ensure the greatest level of fire safety. The standards have set specific limits for heat energy sources, electrical components, and wiring throughout passenger rail systems. The presentation will cover the cable requirements that conform to NFPA 130, including material, testing and example products and installation.
