X-VOLT RHVhMVh 3x Cu +H1 cable design

Conductor

Electrolytic annealed copper, 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) according to IEC 60502-2, 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 external semiconductor and the metallic screen. Colors are;  brown, green and yellow.

Metallic screen

Screen of copper tape. It consists in two copper tapes of 0,1 mm of thickness placed helicoidally and overlapped (H1 screen) over the outer semi-conducting screen.

Cabling

The three conductors are wound helicoidally with their screens in contact.

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. Outer sheath

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