EN50288-7 Cables
XLPE Insulated, LSZH Sheathed Instrumentation Cables
PE Insulated, PVC Sheathed, Individual & Overall Screened, Armoured Instrumentation Cables (Multitriple)
RE-2Y(St)YSWAY-TiMF 70°C / 300 V EN 50288-7 Cables

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.

STANDARDS

Basic design to EN50288-7

VOLTAGE RATING

300V

CABLE CONSTRUCTION

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

Insulation: PE compound as per EN 50290. 2-23.

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

copper drain wire, 0.5mm²

Pair:Two conductors twisted to form a pair

Lay-up: Pairs laid up in layers of optimum pitch

Separator: Polyester tape

Overall Screen: Aluminium/polyester tape with tinned copper drain wire, 0.5mm2

Inner Sheath: Thermoplastic PVC compound

Armour: Galvenized round steel wire, EN 10257-1

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.

COLOUR CODE

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

Outer Sheath: Black or blue for intrinsically safe systems

Physical AND THERMAL PROPERTIES

Temperature Range During Operation (Fixed State): -30°C – +70°C

Temperature Range During Installation (Mobile State): -5°C – +50°C

Minimum Bending Radius: 10 X Overall Diameter

Sunlight Resistance: UL 1581 section 1200

Oil Resistance: ICEA S-73-532(Test temperature +60°C, duration 4h. Retention: min 60% of tensile

strength/min.60% of elongation)
