Draka Industrial Cables

Draka have, over many years, established a reputation for the supply of a comprehensive range of multipair and multicore instrumentation cables for application in the provision of voice and data services and for the interconnection of equipment and instruments.

These products were previously manufactured to BS 5308 parts 1 and 2, a specification widely regarded and accepted globally. More recently, a European standard has been introduced EN50288-7, which has also been adopted as a BS-BSEN 50288-7. This has lead to the withdrawl of BS5308. It was recognised that this standard did not cover some important market requirements in terms of design, and as a result Draka has co-operated as a part of the UK cable trade association to produce a publicly available specification- PAS 5308 1 and 2 in 2009. This preserves aspects of BS 5308, and Draka has now branded these cables under the banner “Draka 5308”.
