Habia Cable launches innovative solutions

Habia Cable, the global industrial cable specialist, has launched two new, innovative product ranges in response to increased demands for greater flexibility, performance and safety in measurement and temperature sensing applications.

Habia Cable, the Sweden-based industrial cable manufacturer and solutions provider, has launched two new ranges aimed at meeting the highest standards of advanced measurement and temperature sensing technology. Called Habiasense and Habiatherm, the new ranges focus on flexibility, high performance and safety, both as integrated components of measurement and temperature sensing devices as well as for connecting such devices to end-user systems. Among the biggest advantages of the new cables is that they are smaller in size and lighter in weight, which makes them easy to install, and that they can be adapted to customer specifications within a broad spectrum of applications and industrial environments.

The Habiasense family
Habiasense cables are designed for measurement and sensing requirements in applications ranging from vibration and pressure to radiation, flow and gas in highly sensitive environments. There are four different cable types in the family – HT1, HT2, ZH1 and ZH2 – and many sub-variations to choose from.
Habiasense HT1 cables have a temperature range of –200 C (static) and –65 C (dynamic) up to +260 C. They are intended for extreme environments where temperature and/or fluid resistance is of the utmost importance. Habiasense HT2 cables have a temperature range of –100 C (static) and –65 C (dynamic) up to +150 C and are the leading choice for fluid resistance.
Habiasense ZH 1 cables are low smoke, zero halogen and flame retardant cables, operating from –40 C up to +125 C. These are intended for areas where personal safety is paramount, such as public places or vehicles, and in hot environments where valuable equipment and circuitry are present. Habiasense ZH2 cables are fully zero halogen (halogen free) and operate in nominal ambient air temperatures from –40 C to to +80 C. This makes them perfectly suitable for external use and dynamic applications.

The Habiatherm family
Habiatherm cables have existed for some time, the technology has recently been significantly upgraded to meet a wider range of temperature sensing specifications. These cables are designed for a multitude of applications such as air-flow systems or liquids such as slurry mixes or molten steel. To do this, Habiatherm cables employ the well-proven thermocouple technique whereby two different metals in the same cable allow temperature changes to be measured as a change in voltage. The Habiatherm family also incorporates a wide variety of extension and compensation cables.

Martin Sears, VP Industrial BU Habia Cable Group, says: “Measurement and sensing technologies are changing fast in order to meet stricter EU demands for accuracy and safety in industrial processes. This means that our customers, which include many small-to-medium sized suppliers producing measurement and sensing equipment, need to keep pace with these developments to remain competitive. “This is where Habiasense and Habiatherm cables score highly because not only do they represent the latest technology and meet the most stringent international standards, they also come with a high degree of flexibility and adaptability. This enables us to also provide our customers with unique, custom designed cable solutions.”

50 years of experience
Habia Cable has more than 50 years of experience in the design and manufacture of high performance cables. But unlike most cable manufacturers, the company provides bespoke solutions to cabling in addition to “off-the-shelf” products, something which Martin Sears sees as a fast growing trend.

“As industrial processes become more and more specialized, so do the technical demands on sub-suppliers,” continues Martin.“

They have to feel confident that the cables they use in their systems are resistant to a growing number of different risks such as sparks, fire, explosions, water, electronic signals, chemicals, contamination and so on, and at the same time be small, flexible, lightweight and provide high performance. Our products are designed in such a way that we are one of the few manufacturers in Europe that can meet all of the demands.” Martin cites high-risk petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals and engineering as examples of industrial environments which would benefit by the security of using measurement and temperature sensing systems incorporating Habia Cables.

The new Habiasense and Habiatherm cables are produced at the company’s manufacturing plant in Söderfors and comply with all European standards.
