    600/1000V PVC Insulated, PVC Sheathed, Armoured Power Cables to BS 6346 (2-5 Cores)

    FGD400 1VVMV-R (CU/PVC/PVC/SWA/PVC 600/1000V Class 2)

    i

    Application

    The cables are intended for use in fixed installations in industrial areas, buildings and similar applications.

    Standards

    Basic design to BS 6346

    Fire Performance

    Flame Retardance (Single Vertical Wire Test) BS EN 50265-2-1

    Voltage Rating

    600/1000V

    Cable Construction

    Conductor Annealed copper wire, stranded according to BS 6360 class 2.
    Insulation PVC TI 1 according to BS 7655-3.1.
    Bedding Extruded PVC or taped bedding comprising two or more layers of PVC tape or other synthetic tape (for cables having a nominal conductor area of 16mm² and above).
    Armouring Galvanized steel wire
    Outer Sheath PVC TM 1 according to BS 7655-4.1.
    Outer Sheath Option UV resistance, hydrocarbon resistance, oil resistance, anti rodent and anti termite properties can be offered as option. Compliance to fire performance standard (IEC 60332-1, IEC 60332-3, UL 1581, UL 1666 etc) depends on the oxygen index of the PVC compound and the overall cable design. LSPVC can also be provided upon request.
