FIREGUARD Flame Retardant Cables

Flame Retardant Power & Control Cables

600/1000V XLPE Insulated, PVC Sheathed, Screened Power Cables (4 Cores)

FGD400 1RCVMV-R (CU/XLPE/CUTO/PVC/SWA/PVC 600/1000V Class 2)

600/1000V XLPE Insulated, PVC Sheathed, Screened Power Cables (4 Cores)

APPLICATION

This cables are designed specifi cally to suit the broad spectrum of requirements of Variable Speed Drives and

also include features for reducing the transmission of electromagnetic interference. This range of screened

cables drastically reduce interferences from electrical noise, especially in Variable Speed Drive (VSD) applications

and are manufactured with fixed conductors. With shield conductivity of 1/10th of phase conductor conductivity,

this range of VSD cables effectively restrain radiated and conducted radio-frequency emissions.

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.

Inner sheath1: PVC Compound

Screen: Overall Screen: Copper wire braiding,or Copper Tape with drain wire

Inner sheath2: PVC Compound

Armouring: Galvanised Steel Wire

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.
