Nexans: INSTRUMENTATION, CONTROL and COMMUNICATION CABLES

January 10, 2019

STANDARDS

International :  IEC 60331-1 or 2; IEC 60092-350; IEC 60092-360; IEC 60092-376; IEC 60332-1; IEC 60332-3-22; IEC 60754-1; IEC 60754-2; IEC 61034

 

DESCRIPTION

APPLICATION: TCX 150/250 V armoured individually screened twisted pair cables are used for telecommunication and instrumentation purposes. These cables provide strong protection aganist cross-talk in both low and high frequency runs, making them suitable for highly polluted electromagnetic surroundings. TCX®(I) cables are also selected where enhanced mechanical protection is required. Designed with halogen-free fire retardant materials, they provide optimum safety for people and maximal asset protection against all risks of fire.

DESIGN

  1. Conductor:
    Stranded bare copper 
    Class 2
     
  2. Insulation:
    XLPE (cross-linked polyethylene)
     
  3. Individual screen:
    Alu/polyester tape with a tinned copper drain wire
     
  4. Inner Covering:
    Lapped polyester tape
     
  5. Armouring:
    Bare copper braid
     
  6. Outer sheath:
    Polyolefin SHF1 (SHF2 on request)
    Colour : grey
