Construction Characteristics
ConductorPlain annealed Copper or Aluminium, circular, stranded, class 2 per IEC 60228.
InsulationSemi-conductive screen over the conductor, XLPE (cross-linked polyethylene) insulation and semi conductive screen over the insulation (strippable1), applied by simultaneous extrusion in just one operation.
Metallic Screen Copper wire screen – annealed copper wires helically wound and an equalizing copper tape applied in an
open counter-helix. Plastic tape is applied over the screen. Or Copper tape screen – a copper tape, standard thickness 0.1 mm helically applied with overlap.
Oversheath Extruded PVC or PE. Upon agreement, an extruded semi-conductive thin layer may be applied on the surface of the oversheath, to facilitate the detection and location of defective points.
