IEC 60502-1 Cables

600/1000V, PVC Insulated Cables according to IEC 60502-1 (unarmoured)

Application:

Iec 60502-1 cables are used for electricity supply in low voltage installation system, Iec 60502-1 cables are

suitable for installation in indoors and outdoors, in cable ducts, under ground, in power and switching stations,

local energy distributions, industrial plants, where there is no risk of mechanical damage.

Construction:

Conductors:

Copper or Aluminium conductor, round standed or Shaped, Class 2 to IEC 60228, BS EN 60228. For smaller

sizes, a solid round conductor, Class 1 as per IEC 60228, BS EN 60228 can also be supplied upon request.

Insulation:

PVC Insulation material and thickness shall be as per IEC 60502-1 and BS 6346.

Assembly / Two, Three or Four insulated conductors are laid-up together with non-hygroscopic
Inner Sheath fillers and the assembly is bedded with an extruded layer of PVC. In case of non
  armoured cables, this layer may be omitted
Armour Aluminum/Galvanized Steel Wires applied helically over the bedding as per IEC
  60502 or as per BS 5467, BS 6346. Single core cables shall be Aluminium wire
  armour. Aluminum/Steel Tapes applied helically over the bedding of multi-core cables
  as per IEC 60502.
Outer Outer sheath shall be of Extruded PVC Type ST2 as per IEC 60502-1 or Type 9 as
Sheath BS 6346/5467.
  Special type of PVC sheathing material such as Fire Retardant PVC, Anti-Termite
  PVC, Anti-Rodent PVC, Sunlight resistant PVC, Oil Resistant PVC are available on
  special request. Also, special sheathing materials such as LLDPE, MDPE, HDPE,
  LSF, CPE are available on request.
Fire Cables can be supplied with special flame retardant PVC outer sheath to comply with
Performance the flame test requirements of IEC 60332-3-22, IEC 60332-3-23 and IEC 60332-3-24,
of Cable can also supply cables with Low Smoke Halogen Free (LSHF) material according to
Sheaths IEC 60502-1, BS 7211, BS 6724 or other equivalent standards.
