EN50288-7 Cables
XLPE Insulated, LSZH Sheathed Instrumentation Cables
EN 50288-7 Cables Dear Mark,

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 the interconnection 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: PE compound, EN 50290. 2-23.

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

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.

COLOUR CODE

Insulation: Black / White, continuously numbered on white core(1, 2..)for multipair.

Outer Sheath: Black or blue for intrinsically safe systems
