1800V DC Positive Traction Cables

Application

These DC power cables are used for urban railways for 1500V DC traction power system with feedback current and return current, suitable for fixed installation. The cables are suitable for installations in ducts, tunnels, and cable troughs or on the cable bridges etc.

Standard

  • IEC60092
  • BS 7655
  • IEC60502
  • BS 6883 Type 657 SW4
