Solid PE Insulated & LAP Sheathed Air Core/Jelly Filled Cables to DIN VDE 0816

Applications

The cables are designed for use as connection between central offices. The cables are suitable for installation in ducts and aerial installation with integral suspension strand. Jelly filled option is for subscriber's cables installed nderground or along the edge of pavement. An armoured option is offered for direct burial installations.

Standards

DIN VDE 0816

Construction

Telephone Cable - DIN VDE 0816 DIN VDE 0816 - Telephone Cables
Conductors Solid annealed bare copper 0.4/0.6/0.8mm, as per class 1 of DIN VDE 0295/BS 6360/IEC 60228.
Insulation Solid polyethylene 2YI2 type as per DIN VDE 0207-2.
Twisted Pairs Insulated conductors are twisted into pairs with varying lay length to minimize crosstalk.
Cabling Element Star Quads.
Cable Core Assembly 4 Cores are twisted into star quad. 5 star quads are stranded into a basic unit. 5 or 10 basic units each are stranded into one main unit. The star quads are grouped in units and stranded in layers to form the cable core.Standard make up is per DIN VDE 0816 in the Cable Make Up Diagram.
Core Wrapping One or more non-hygroscopic polyester tapes are helically or longitudinally laid with an overlap. These tapes furnish thermal, mechanical as well as high dielectric protection between shielding and individual conductors.
Moisture Barrier A layer of aluminium tape (0.2mm) coated with PE-copolymer on one or both sides and applied longitudinally with overlap over the cable core to provide electrical shielding coverage and ensures a barrier against water vapor.
Sheath Black low or medium density polyethylene 2YM2 type as per DIN VDE 0207-3, being able to withstand exposure to sunlight, temperature variations, ground chemicals and other environmental contaminants.
Ripcord Ripcord may be provided for slitting the sheath longitudinally to facilitate its removal.
Spare Pairs (optional) Spare pairs may be provided for large pair cables.
Continuity Wire (optional) Tinned copper drain wire may be longitudinally laid to ensure electrical continuity of the screen.

Optional Construction

Jelly Filled Cable The cable core interstices are filled with petroleum jelly to avoid longitudinal water penetration within the cable. The water resistant filling compound is applied to the air space between non-hygroscopic tape and shield,shield and sheath within the cable core.
Armoured Cable Corrugated steel tape armour is applied over an optional inner polyethylene sheath with an overlap. An outer polyethylene sheath is applied over the armour.
