X-VOLT RHVhMVh 3x Cu +H1 cable design

Conductor

Copper conductor, class 2, based on EN 60228 and IEC 60228.

Internal semiconductor

Screen over the conductor, made of thermosetting semiconductor material.

Insulation

Cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE), in dry atmosphere catenary tube, through a triple layer extrusion process.

External semiconductor

Screen over the insulation, made of thermosetting and strippable semiconductor material.

Cable conductor identification

The conductors are identified with a tape placed along the cable between the outer semiconductor and the screen. Colours are;  brown, green and yellow.

Metallic screen

Screen of copper wires and cross-wound of copper tape placed helicoidally. (H1 screen).

Cabling

The three conductors are wound helicoidally with their screens in contact. A bedding is used to fill the spaces between the conductors to achieve a better cylindrical finish .

Bedding

The special PVC compound  bedding gives a high level of resistance to hydrocarbons and mineral oils.

7. Armour

Galvanized steel wire wrapped helicoidally around the cable and fixed with a counter-wound metal tape.

8. External sheath

The special PVC outer sheath compound gives a high level of resistance to hydrocarbons and mineral oils. Red colours.
