PAS 5308 Cable Part 2 Type 2 PVC-OS-SWA-PVC

Applications

These cables are designed to connect electrical instrumentation and communication systems in and around process plants and similar applications. Generally used to transmit analogue or digital signals in measurement and process control where chemicals may be present. The armoured version are well adapted to underground use in industrial applications where chemical and mechanical protections are needed (refinery areas, chemical plant...).

Construction

Conductor Annealed copper, sizes: 0.5mm^2 and 0.75mm^2 mulitistranded(Class 5), 1.5mm^2 and 2.5mm^2 multistranded(Class 2) to BS EN 60228
Insulation PVC to BS EN 50290-2-21:2002, grade TI51
Pairing Two insulated conductors uniformly twisted together with a lay not exceeding 100mm, Two-pair cables without individual pair screens (quads) shall have four cores laid in quad formation round a central dummy
Colour code Multicore cables: up to 40 cores yellow with black numbers, 41 - 80 cores black with yellow numbers. Multipair cables:See technical information
Binder tape Non-hygroscopic binder tape of minimum thickness 0.023 mm
Collective screen Aluminium/polyester tape is applied over the laid up pairs metallic side down in contact with tinned copper drain wire, 0.5mm^2
Inner Sheath Extruded sheath of a PVC compound conforming to BS EN 50290-2-22:2002, grade TM51
Amour Galvanized steel wire armour
Outer sheath Extruded sheath of a PVC compound conforming to BS EN 50290-2-22:2002, grade TM51
Sheath colour Generally black
