Aerial Self Supporting Cable
(Solid PE Insulated, Aluminium Screened, Polyethylene Sheathed Galvanized Steel Wire Beared Cable)
Figure 8 Self-supporting cables are designed for self supporting aerial installations, mainly used in the distribution network connecting cross connection cabinet with terminal blocks, PE solid insulation and 10 pair unit system facilitate easy handling of the cable in jointing, termination and maintenance work. Cable core and galvanized steel messenger are integrally assembled to form configuration to simultaneous installation of cable and messenger.
Solid annealed copper in size 0.6, 0.8 and 1.0 mm.
Colored, solid polyethylene with excellent electrical and mechanical properties Nominal thickness of insulation as per table 1.
|Table 1. Insulation Thickness|
Nominal Thickness of
4 insulated conductors are twisted evenly into a quad. The make up and color scheme are arranged as per fig.1 and Table 2
10 Pair Unit
5 quad (quad No. 1 to 5) are bunched together into 10 pair as shown in fig. 2 and than bound with colored binder tape. Color scheme of the binder tape for 10 pair unit on each layer are arranged as per Table 3.
Approriate number of 10 pair units are stranted into a compact and cylindrical cable, and then wrapped with layers of binder tape.
STEL K - 001 ; SII 0611 - 82 ; SNI 04 - 2064 - 1990
Cable Designation : U - E (Pe) ES
