I have a question regarding alarm cable. Fire Alarm & Signal (FAS) cable is made in four varieties: FAS60, FAS90, FAS105 and FAS200. The numbers, I believe, reflect the maximum temperature that the cable will support signal.
FAS60 is very common in the US; Canada seems to be FAS105.
Is there any reason for this, or is it just what's commonly available? In other words, if a cable is CSA-listed as FAS60, can it be used in Canada in a fire alarm application, or must an FAS105 be used?
Thanks in advance for enlightening me!
