Note: Asterisk ** denotes that the standard compliance is optional, depending on the oxygen index of the PVC compound and the cable design.

VOLTAGE RATING

600/1000V

CABLE CONSTRUCTION

Conductor: Plain annealed copper wire, normal stranded or compact stranded according to IEC(EN) 60228 class

2.

Insulation: Extruded cross-linked XLPE compound.

Filler, binder and inner covering: PP, PET, PVC

Armouring: Double steel tape

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.
