XLPE Insulated, PVC Sheathed & Overall Screened Instrumentation Cables (Multicore)

Application

EN 50288-7 cables are used for transmission of analogue and digital signals in instrument and control systems;

allowed for use in zone 1 and zone 2, group II, classified areas (IEC 79-14), not allowed for direct connection to

low impedance sources, e.g. public mains electricity supply.

Recommended for indoor and outerdoor installation, on racks, trays, in conduits, in dry and wet locations; not for

direct buiral.Recommended for use as fire protection messure for people and important material assets.

CABLE CONSTRUCTION

conductor: Annealed copper solid or plain copper stranded to IEC 60228 Class 2.

Insulation: Extruded cross-linked XLPE compound as per EN 50290-2-29.

overall screen: Aluminium/polyester tape with tinned copper drain wire, 0.5mm2

outer sheath: Thermoplastic PVC compound as per EN 50290-2-22. UV resistance, hydrocarbon resistance, oil

resistance, anti rodent and anti termite properties can be offered as option. Compliance to fire performance

standard (IEC 60332-1, IEC 60332-3, UL 1581, UL 1666 etc) depends on the oxygen index of the PVC compound

and the overall cable design. LSPVC can also be provided upon request.
