Transmit Distribute Power Fire Resistant Cable Indoor / Outdoor CE KEMA Certification
Application: It is used to transmit and distribute power in power transmission and distribution system of 35kV or lower. It is generally applied to the fields including power, construction, mines, metallurgy, petrochemical industry and communication in complete replace of oil immersed paper insulated power cable and in partial replace of PVC insulated power cable. Power cables for power networks, underground, outdoors and in cable ducting. High voltage xlpe cable is used to be laid indoors, in tunnel, cable furrow or pipe, this cable couldn’t bear mechanical force outside. Laying single core cable in magnetic duct not permissible.
Conductor: Class 1/2 annealed bare copper solid or strands. This wires are formed into final conductor in the stranding machines under strict quality surveillance.
Insulation: Cross linked polyethylene compound or PVC is insulated over the conductors by extrusion process.The raw materials and thicknesses of Insulation are maintained as per standards and conform to IEC60502/BS7870 Standards as the case may be.
Xlpe Insulated Power Cable are identified either by colour or by numbers as follows:
No. of cores Identification
Old Colour coding New Colour coding as per BS
1 Red or Black Brown or Blue
2 Red & Black Brown, Blue
3 Red, Yellow Blue Brown, Black, Grey
4 Red, Yellow, Blue & Black Blue, Brown, Black, Grey
5 Red, Yellow, Blue, Black, Y/G Blue, Brown, Black, Grey & Y/G
Armour : When armouring is required, the armour consists of single layer of galvanised steel wires/galvanized steel tapes.
The armour is applied helically as per standards.
Single core cables are armoured with Aluminium Wires or Copper wires based on requirement.
Outersheath : Standard cables are manufactured with Extruded black PVC. Outersheath is embossed or printed with the information required by relevant standards.
Special FR, FRLS, FRRT, LSF, MDPE compounds are used for outersheathing of cables, to suit customer’s specific requirements.
