-Conductor: plain stranded copper or aluminium -Insulation: materials such as cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) provide high temperature resistance and excellent dielectric strength-providing enhanced electrical properties.
-Bedding: a layer to create a protective barrier between the insulation and the armour. -Armour: a steel or aluminium armour provides mechanical protection to allow the cable to withstand the mechanical stresses to which it is exposed.
-Sheath: the constituent parts of the cable are held together by a sheath offering a further level of protection.
Black sheaths can be carbon-loaded for UV stability.
-Voltage: voltage ratings of 600/1000V, 6.35/11kV and 19/33kV.
Single core with Aluminum wire armour (AWA) and Multi-core PVC cable with steel wire armour (SWA). Power
and auxiliary fixed wiring cables for use in power networks,
underground, outdoor and indoor applications and for use in
