Application

The cables are used for the internal wiring of building when the circuit integrity during fire is paramount. The

cables are intended for use in fire fighting plants with special ceramized silicone insulation, with and without

aluminum foil and LSZH outer sheath. The fire alarm cables with 30 to 90 minutes circuit integrity should be used

for control voltages and data transfer in alarm and fire alarm systems, where a system circuit integrity

E30/E60/E90 depending on lay system in accordance with DIN 4102-12 is required. The circuit integrity is

guaranteed with a test voltage of 110V.

Cable Construction

Conductors: Solid annealed bare or tinned copper sized 0.6/0.8/0.9mm as per class 1 of VDE 0295/IEC 60228.

Insulation: Silicone Rubber compound as per DIN VDE 0266.

Cabling Elements: Insulated cores are twisted to form pairs with varying lay length to minimize crosstalk. Two-

pair cable had four cores laid in quad formation.

Cabling: Pairs are cabled together.In cables with 8 pairs or more, 4 pairs are assembled to form a bunch, and

the bunches are then cabled together.

Cable Core Assembly: The twisted pairs are stranded to the core in layers.

Core Wrapping: One or more non hygroscopic polyester tapes are helically or longitudinally laid with an overlap

prior to sheathing.

Screen: A laminated Aluminum/Polyester tape is placed in contact with solid copper 0.6mm or 0.8mm drain wire.

Inner Sheath(optional): PE or thermoplastic LSZH compound type.

Armour (optional): Either corrugated steel tape armour or galvanized steel wire is applied over an inner

polyethylene sheath. For steel tape armour, the 0.15mm thick steel tape is coated with a copolymer and applied

with an overlap. For steel wire armour, single layer of galvanized steel wire armour is applied.

Ripcord: Nylon ripcord may be placed parallel to the cores to facilitate sheath removal.

Drain Wire: A solid tinned earth/continuity wire shall be laid longitudinally for screened cables.

Outer Sheath: Thermoplastic LSZH compound HM2 as per DIN VDE 0207-24 .

Colour Code

Quad colour in each bundle:

Pair 1: Blue-Red Pair 2: Green-Yellow Pair 3: Green-Brown Pair 4: White-Black

The individual bundles are identified by a numbered helix.
