TR2031- Loop Detector Feeder Cable

Application and Description :

TR2031 loop detector feeder cable is a copper communications cable sheathed with medium density polyethyylene (MDPE) designed for installation in a ducted network. Armoured feeder cables are used to feed electrical current to inductive cable loops and designed for direct burial underground.

Standard :

BS 6500

Cable Construction:

- Conductor: Solid plain annealed copper, comply with IEC 60228 for Class 1
- Insulation: Polythene (PE), comply with IEC 60708
- Core Identification: 1 pair – red, black
2 pair – red, yellow, blue, black laid up in quad formation in order of rotation
- Screen (for Non Armoured Cable Only)): Aluminum polymer laminate tape comply with IEC 60708
- Inner Sheath (for Armoured Cable Only): Medium density polyethylene (MDPE), comply with IEC 60708
- Armor (for Armoured Cable Only): Galvanized steel wires to BS EN 10257-1
- Outer Sheath: Medium density polyethylene (MDPE), comply with IEC 60708.
- Outer Sheath Color: Orange/Black
