600/1000V, PVC Insulated and Lead Sheathed Cables according to IEC 60502-1

Applications

These cables are used for electricity supply in low voltage installation system, They are suitable for installation in indoors and outdoors, in cable ducts, under ground, in power and switching stations, local energy distributions, industrial plants, where there is no risk of mechanical damage. The lead sheath brings an enhanced resistance to aromatic hydrocarbons.

Construction

Conductors

The conductors shall be either of Class 1 or Class 2 of plain or metal-coated annealed copper or of plain aluminium or aluminium alloy, or of Class 5 of plain or metal-coated copper in accordance with IEC 60228.

Insulation

PVC Insulation material and thickness shall be as per IEC 60502-1, PVC material shall be Type A as per IEC 60502-1.

Colour Code

Colour Code (1)

1 Core Red or Black
2 Cores Red, Black
3 Cores Red, Yellow, Blue
4 Cores Red, Yellow, Blue, Black
5 Cores Red, Yellow, Blue, Black, Green
Above 5 Cores Black Cores with White numerals

Colour Code (2)

1 Core Brown or Blue
2 Cores Brown, Blue
3 Cores Brown, Black, Grey
4 Cores Blue, Brown, Black, Grey
5 Cores Green/Yellow, Blue, Brown, Black, Grey
Above 5 Cores Black Cores with White numerals

Other colours can be manufactured upon request.

Assembly / Inner Covering

The inner coverings may be extruded or lapped. For cables with circular cores, except cables with more than five cores, a lapped inner covering shall be permitted only if the interstices between the cores are substantially filled. A suitable binder is permitted before application of an extruded inner covering. The materials used for inner coverings and fillers shall be suitable for the operating temperature of the cable and compatible with the insulating material.For halogen free cables, the inner covering and fillers shall also be halogen free compound.

Lead Sheath

lead or lead alloy and shall be applied as a reasonably tight-fitting seamless tube.

Seperation Sheath

The seperation sheath shall be of extruded PVC Type ST2 as per IEC 60502-1, or other material refer to outer sheath material.

Armour

Aluminum/galvanized steel/steel wires applied helically over the Inner Covering as per IEC 60502-1, or double aluminum/steel tapes and copper/tinned copper wire can also be manufactured upon request.

Outer Sheath

Outer sheath shall be of extruded PVC Type ST1/ST2 as per IEC 60502-1, Polyethylene type ST3/ST7, Halogen free compound ST8, Polychloroprene, chlorosulfonated polyethylene or similar polymers, type SE1 are also available on request.
