Block series ME-W

Copper tape shield

600 Volt
Cu 16 up to 10 AWG
ICEA S 73-532

Control, signalling, measuring and protective equipment, electric controls of home installations. Use in closed environments with a high concentration of people (airports, hospitals, trains, cinemas, shopping centers, tunnels) and in control rooms with electronic equipment sensitive to the exposure of corrosive gases. Installed in conduits, trays, cable ladders, in direct open air or indoors, buried in a trench or in ducts. It provides additional electromagnetic protection.

Resistances and intensity of admissible currents

Gauge AWG Electrical resistance at 20°C in C.C. (Ohm/km) Electrical resistance at 75°C in AC. a 60Hz (Ohm/km) Current-carrying capacity (1)
2x 4x 7x 10x 19x 30x

(1) Current-carrying capacity of cables with up to three conductors, installed in ducts or directly buried, up to an ambient temperature of 30ºC, according to chart 310.15 (B)(16) of the NFPA 70. As from four-conductors, we’ve additionally applied the correction factor for more than three conductors from the chart 310.15 (B)(3)(a) of the NFPA70.
