High Insulation Resistance
In all cables, there is generally leakage of current from the live conductor through the insulation. In case of inferior quality of insulation, the current leakage increases. This is unsafe and can cause damage to installations as well as become a threat to life.
Low Leakage Current – Havells wires have an allowable current-leakage limit that is 50 times lower than the prescribed international safety norms.
International safety standards specifies that current leakage limit in hand held equipment is considered to be safe if the value is not more than 0.75 mA. Havells cables, with S3 technology, incorporate insulation of high quality which ensures that current leakage level is as low as 0.01 mA, which is much below the prescribed limit. Havells cables have been certified by the Central Power and Research Institute (CPRI) – a premier laboratory recognised by the Government of India.
Safety from electrical shocks – Electric shock occurs when a body-part comes in contact with a bare conductor of poor insulated wire. Higher insulation resistance protects against electric shock.
Release of certain harmful substances such as lead, mercury, cadmium and chromium etc. in the plastics/equipment are dangerous to the environment and health. European Union has adopted a directive on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronics equipment commonly referred to as Restriction of Hazardous Substances directive or RoHS.
Havells cables with S3 technology are certified by Bureau Veritas for RoHS compliance as per directive 2006/95/EC. This ensures that release of hazardous substances are eliminated to provide safety for human health and to give us green environment.
