The more economical CL 90 cable meets SHF1 ß uid re- quirements and uses a zero-halogen, low-Þ re-hazard jack- et. Its temperature range is -25¡C to +90¡C.The range of available lightweight thin-wall cables pro- vides a comprehensive solution to communication, control, and instrumentation needs on offshore platforms. Plat- forms that standardize on such cables can save signiÞ cant weight, reduce the space consumed by cables and cable management hardware, and provide for the safety of per- sonnel through halogen-free and Þ re-retarded designs. The cable are gaining wider acceptance as platform designers and operators look for innovative ways to save.
