APPLICATION

EN 50288-7 unarmoured LSZH sheathed cables are generally use for indoor installation and suitable for wet and

damp areas. Generally, EN 50288-7 cables are used within industrial process manufacturing plants for

communication, data and voice transmission signals and services. Also used for theinterconnection of electrical

equipment and instruments, the LSZH sheath can reduce toxic smoke and fume emission.

CABLE CONSTRUCTION

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

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

Pairs: Two insulated conductors uniformly twisted together with a lay not exceeding 100mm

Individual Screen: Aluminium/polyester tape is applied over each pair metallic side down in contact with tinned

copper

drain wire, 0.5mm²

Binder tape: PETP transparent tape

Overall Screen: Aluminium/polyester tape is applied over the laid up pairs metallic side down in contact with

tinned copper drain wire, 0.5mm²

Outer Sheath: Thermoplastic LSZH compound type LTS3 as per BS 7655-6.1 (Thermosetting LSZH compound

type SW2-SW4 as per BS 7655 2.6 can be offered.). UV resistance, hydrocarbon resistance, oil resistance, anti

rodent and anti termite properties can be offered as option.
