Marine Cable

F1 QFCI

Applications :

    Marin steel armoured optical fibre cables are flame retardant, low smoke, halogen free and fire resistant, used for communication and emergency systems that need to be operational during fire.

Standards :

  • IEC 60794 IEC 60811-2-1
    IIEC 60331-25 IEC 60332-3-24
    IEC 60332-3-22 IEC 60754-1,2

  BS 6883&BS7917 Offshore & Marine cables BS 6883&BS7917 Offshore & Marine cables

 

Construction :

  • Fibre Element : Loose tube core design.
  • Central Strength Element : Steel wire or fibre reinforced plastic (FRP).
  • Bedding : Halogen free and flame retardant thermoplastic compound.
  • Armour : Galvanized steel wire braid.
  • Outer Sheath : Halogen free and flame retardant, UV-stabilized, thermoplastic compound, SHF1.

Optional :

  • F4 QFCI-HCF : QFCI-HCF cables are consist of loose tube fibre element, steel wire or FRP central strength element, halogen free and flame retardant thermoplastic bedding, galvanized steel wire braid armour, SHF1 sheath, HC-fire protection, fire resistant tape and SHF1 outer sheath.
