    600/1000V XLPE Insulated, PVC Sheathed, Unarmoured Power Cables to BS 7889 (2-5 Cores)

    FGD400 1RV-R (CU/XLPE/PVC 600/1000V Class 2)

    Application

    The cables are mainly use in fixed installations in industrial areas, buildings and similar applications but not for burial in the ground, either directly or in ducts.

    Standards

    Basic design to to BS 7889:2012

    Approvals

    TUV Certification (Z1 17 08 98200 008)

    Fire Performance

    Flame Retardance (Single Vertical Wire Test) BS EN 60332-1-2

    Voltage Rating

    600/1000V

    Cable Construction

    Conductor Annealed copper wire, stranded according to BS EN 60228 class 2.
    Insulation XLPE type GP8 according to BS 7655-1.3.
    Filling If necessary, the formation of a compact and reasonably circular cable shall be achieved by one of the following methods.
    a) The application of synthetic fillers or binder tape(s).
    b) The optional inner covering.
    c) The sheath provided it effectively fills the interstices.
    d) Any combination of the above.
    Inner Covering Option The optional inner covering, where used, shall consist of an extruded layer of synthetic polymeric material. It shall surround the single core and the laid-up two, three, four or five cores, giving the assembly a practically circular shape.
    Outer Sheath PVC Type 9 according to BS 7655-4.2.
    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.

    Colour Code

    Insulation Colour Two-core: Brown, blue
    Three-core: Brown, black, grey. Alternatively, green-and-yellow, blue, brown
    Four-core: Blue, brown, black, grey. Alternatively, green-and-yellow, brown, black, grey
    Five-core: Green-and-yellow, blue, brown, black, grey
    Note: Depending on their intended use, the cables might be subject to the core colour requirements specified
    in BS 7671 or other standards, or in statutory requirements.
    Sheath Colour Black, other colours can be offered upon request
