FIREGUARD Flame Retardant Cables

Flame Retardant Power & Control Cables

600/1000V XLPE Insulated, PVC Sheathed, Armoured Power Cables (Single Core)

FGD300 1RCVMV-R (CU/XLPE/CUTO/PVC/AWA/PVC 600/1000V Class 2)

600/1000V XLPE Insulated, PVC Sheathed, Armoured Power Cables (Single Core)

APPLICATION

This range of screened cables drastically reduce interferences from electrical noise, especially in Variable Speed

Drive (VSD) applications and are manufactured with fixed conductors.

STANDARDS

Basic design adapted to IEC 60502-1

VOLTAGE RATING

600/1000V

CABLE CONSTRUCTION

Conductor: Plain annealed copper wire, stranded according to IEC(EN) 60228 class 2.

Insulation: Extruded cross-linked XLPE compound.

Overall Screen: Copper Tape

Inner sheath: PVC Compound

Outer Sheath: Thermoplastic PVC compound. 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.
