optionals

Insulation:High-density polyethylene, UL Listed PLTC.
Sheath: Fire-retardant and mineral-oil-resistant.
Armour: Zinc-plated steel served-wire helical armour or aluminium interlock armour plus PVC sheath (colour coded depending on the alloy and requirement); fire-retardant, sunlight and hydrocarbon-resistant. These cables are UL certified for direct earth burial.

See Technical Note # 8, "Wire armour properties"

installation

Assembly: Minimum bend radius is 7xOD (unarmoured versions) and 12xOD (armoured cables).
Maximum pulling tension: 5daN/sq mm on copper conductors. Wire-armoured cables can withstand 10daN/sq mm on the armour wires.
Assembly temperature: 5ºC or higher.

alternatives

Construction requirements: As per ICEA S 73-532 (300V and 600V), British Standard 5308, EN 50288-7 and NBR 10300.
Materials: Thermocouple extension cables can be silicone sheathed or insulated for enhanced performance when exposed to high temperature conditions. Cables can be made to order based on the materials and construction alternatives described in the technical information appendix.
