Common cable insulation that is made by material formed by halogen particles when it is burnt by fire, it will generate toxic smoke. The smoke contains particles that absolutely danger for people who breathe it and can causing fatality.
According to this concern, the disciplines which responsible to implement are instrument and electrical engineering. The instrument and electrical engineers should make sure the cable meets the requirement. To make sure the cable supplied by vendor is the low smoke zero halogen cable, the engineers should check the cable meets standard IEC 60754 for Halogen content and IEC 61034 for Low Smoke content.
