CABLE CONSTRUCTION
Conductor:
Plain annealed copper wire, stranded according to IEC(EN) 60228 class 2.
Insulation: Mica glass tape covered by extruded cross-linked XLPE compound or fire resistant silicone rubber compound type EI2 as per BS 7655-1.1.
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, the bunches are then cabled together.
Overall Screen: Aluminum/polyester tape with 0.5mm2 screen (7/0.3mm) tinned copper drain wire.
Inner Sheath(optional):Thermoplastic LSZH compound type LTS3 as per BS 7655-6.1 Armouring(optional): Galvanized steel wire armour
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.)
