BS 5467 Armoured Power Cables, 600/1000V

Two-core 600/1000 V cables with stranded copper conductors

Application

BS 5467 cables are used for power and control circuits,BS 5467 cables can offer excellent protection through the

use of a heavy galvanized steel wire armour. The GSWA makes them suitable for use inside and outside

buildings or for direct burial in the ground.

Construction

Conductor Solid Aluminum or Copper conductor, round stranded or shaped, Class 2 to BS 6460, IEC 60228.
Insulation Colour Code XLPE (Cross-Linked Polyethylene) Type GP 8 or ethylene propylene rubber (GP 6) 1 Core : Brown
  2 Cores: Brown or Blue
  3 Cores: Brown, Black, Grey 4 Cores: Blue, Brown, Black, Grey 5 Cores: Green/Yellow, Blue, Brown, Black, Grey Above 5 Cores: White Cores with black numbers
Bedding Armour Outer Sheath a)extruded layer of polymeric material,
b)or a taped bedding consist of two or more layers of PVC tape or other synthetic
tape, for the cable having conductor area of 16mm2 and above
