X-IT™ cable is a Circuit Integrity in Conduit (CIC) cable that will withstand over two hours of direct flame. The construction is ceramifiable silicon rubber insulation with a low smoke/zero halogen jacket. It can also be supplied with a copper shield. The primary application for X-IT™ cable is to meet the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Life Safety Code, which requires that emergency voice/alarm communication (EVAC) systems are in place where there is a danger to life from fire and need for voice instructions or alarm to provide safe egress from the building. The X-IT™ cable provides the link between the fire command center and the voice/alarm device.
