1 coreRed, Black, Yellow, Blue, Green/Yellow. (Other Color as per specified standard can also be manufactured)


1. Areas where people will remain in occupation for short time, e.g. schools, shopping malls, mass transit systems like metro stations etc.
2. Services where circuit integrity is very important under fire conditions, e.g. Special equipment in hospital
3. Essential safety circuit, e.g. Fire detection, fire alarm, voice alarm etc.
4. Power supply to equipment used in fire-fighting, e.g. Sprinkler pumps
5. In large buildings where fire strategy involves evacuation of occupants in a phased manner.
