Construction Characteristics
Conductor Plain annealed Copper or Aluminium, circular, stranded, class 2 per IEC 60228.
Insulation Semi-conductive screen over the conductor, XLPE (cross-linked polyethylene) insulation and Semi-conductive screen over the insulation (strippable 1), applie by simultaneous extrusion in just one operation.
Metallic Screen Copper wire screen – annealed copper wires helically wound and an equalising copper tape applied in an open counter-helix. Or Copper tape screen – a copper tape, standard thickness 0.1 mm helically applied with overlap. Screened conductors are stranded together with fillers. A plastic tape is applied over this core.
Fillers Extruded polymeric material.
Oversheath Extruded PVC or PE. Optionally, a Low Smoke Halogen Free thermoplastic compound can be used for cables with need for improved fire behaviour.
