  • Concentric conductor above all as PE

Application range

  • Power and control cable for fixed installation in the following applications:
  • For indoor and outdoor use
  • Burial without additional, suitable underground protection according to VDE standard HD 603/VDE 0276-603 - Part 3-G (point 4) governing PVC cables for direct burial: normal minimum installation depth 0.6 m, but at least 0.8 m under roads
  • In concrete with a temperature below the maximum cable operating temperature of +70 °C according to the VDE standard HD 603/VDE 0276-603 - Part 3-G (point 4) governing PVC cables for direct burial

Product features

  • Flame-retardant according IEC 60332-1-2
  • Current rating according to HD 603/VDE 0276-603, Part 3-G, Table 14 (buried at +20 °C ground temperature according to HD 603/VDE 0276-603, Part 3-G, point 5) for routing underground and Table 15 (in the air at an air temperature of +30 °C according to HD 603/VDE 0276-603, Part 3-G, point 5) when used outdoors; but always taking into consideration corrections/reductions to the current rating that may be necessary according to VDE 0298-4, and VDE 0298-4 (also refer to the catalogue appendix T12) for installation in and on buildings
