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

CABLE CONSTRUCTION

Conductors: 18AWG solid bare copper.

Insulation: PE compound.

Screen1: Aluminium/polyester or aluminium tape.

Screen2: Tinned copper braid.

Inner Sheath: PVC compound.

Armour:

cwb: copper Wire Braid

swb: Steel Wire Braid

swa: Steel Wire Armour

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.
