POWERHARD M RVhMVh-K

Galvanized steel wire armour cable.


POWERHARD M RVhMVh-K cable has been specially designed for installations in potentially explosion hazard locations (ATEX), provided that local regulations allow it. It is highly recommended for petrol stations, petrochemical plants, flammable product warehouses, etc. It can also be used in installations such as production plants, agricultural facilities, street lighting and installations in general where the cable is subject to high mechanical aggression.

This cable is also available in hydrocarbon resistant version.

POWERHARD M RVhMVh-K cable design

Conductor

Electrolytic copper, class 5 (flexible), based on EN 60228 and IEC 60228.

Insulation

Cross-linked polyethylene insulation type DIX-3 according to HD 603 and XLPE according to IEC 60502-1. The standard identification of insulated conductors according to HD 308, is the following:

1 x Natural

2 x  Blue + Brown

3 G  Blue + Brown + Green/yellow

3 x  Brown + Black + Grey

3 x + 1 x  Brown + Black + Grey + Blue (reduced cross section)

4 G  Brown + Black + Grey + Green/yellow

4 x  Brown + Black + Grey + Blue

5 G  Brown + Black + Grey + Blue + Green/yellow

6 G or more  Brown + Black numbered + Green/Yellow

Inner covering

PVC.

Armour

Galvanized steel wire armour.  Aluminium armour is used in single-core cables to avoid parasite currents that may overheat the cable.

Outer sheath

PVC outer sheath type ST2 according to IEC 60502-1. Black colour.
