Foam Skin Insulated & AP Sheathed (ALPETH) Jelly Filled Cables to ICEA S-84-608

APPLICATION

The cables are designed for use in access or trunk networks, from telephone exchange to subscriber area. The cables are suitable for installation in ducts, direct burial in the ground and also for aerial installation with integral suspension strand.Jelly filled option is for subscriber’s cables installed underground or along the edge of pavement. An armoured option is offered for direct burial installations where additional mechanical or rodent protection is required. A figure-8 self support option is offered for aerial installation.

CONSTRUCTION

 Telephone Cable - ICEA S-84-608 ICEA S-84-608 - Telephone Cables
Conductors Solid annealed bare copper, 0.4/0.5/0.63/0.9mm as per ASTM B-3/class 1 of IEC 60228.
Insulation Foam skin which is a composite polyethylene insulation made of an inner cellular layer and an outer solid skin as per ASTM D 1248/IEC 60708.
Twisted Pairs Insulated conductors are twisted into pairs with varying lay length to minimize crosstalk.
Cabling Element Twisted Pairs.
Cable Core Assembly Cables of 25 pairs or less are assembled into cylindrical core. Cables larger than 25 pairs are assembled into units, which are then used to form the core. Units are identified by colour coded binders. Standard construction is per ICEA S-84-608 given in 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 corrugated bare aluminium tape (0.2mm/8mil) is applied longitudinally with overlap over the cable core to provide 100% electrical shielding coverage and ensures a barrier against water vapor.
Filling 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.
Sheath Black low density polyethylene as per ASTM D 1248/IEC 60708, being able to withstand exposure to sunlight,temperature variations, ground chemicals and other environmental contaminants.
Ripcord(optional) Ripcord may be provided for slitting the sheath longitudinally to facilitate its removal.
Spare Pairs (optional) Spare pairs may be incorporated for large pair cables.
Continuity Wire (optional) One tinned copper drain wire may be longitudinally laid to ensure electrical continuity of the screen.

OPTIONAL CONSTRUCTION

Armoured Cable 0.15mm/6mil thick corrugated steel tape armour is applied with an overlap over an optional inner polyethylene sheath.
An outer polyethylene sheath is applied over the armour.
Self-Support Cables A 7-strand galvanized steel strand is used as support wire. Black polyethylene sheath covers both core and
support wire in a figure-8 construction.
Shield Options There are 8 different shield options which can be offered in this standard:

1) 8 mil bare aluminium tape
2) 8 mil coated aluminium tape
3) 5 mil copper tape
4) 5 mil copper clad alloy steel tape
5) 5 mil copper clad stainless steel tape
6) 6 mil & 7 mil 194 copper alloy tape
7) 6 mil bare steel tape
8) 6 mil coated steel tape
