In our experience there are many engineers who design cable assemblies without prototyping them first.

In an office environment it doesn’t take long for the work space to become cluttered, files stack up, boxes get put in piles and electrical cables suddenly resemble an uncontrollable spaghetti junction.

With the terms LSF and LSHF often interchanged due to the misconception that they are acronyms for the same thing, the ACI is telling contractors and installers to be cautious of cable labelled or described as LSF as this does not mean “halogen-free”.
