LSE Signal Cable

APPLICATIONS:

For use as Signal Cables aboard ship and off-shore oil rigs. The cables are constructed in accordance with the IEEE Recommended Practice for Marine Cable for Use on Shipboard and Fixed or Floating Platforms.

CONSTRUCTION:

  1. CONDUCTOR Soft annealed bare copper per ASTM B 3 and B 8, Class C stranding. Sizes as shown in the attached tables. (tinned copper conductors and Class B stranding available on request)

  2. INSULATION (Type LSE) Thermosetting, Cross-linked, Low Smoke, Halogen Free, Ethylene Propylene Rubber meeting the IEEE Std 1580-2001 requirements for Type LSE insulation. Wall thickness as shown in attached tables.
  3. TWISTED PAIR COMPONENT (triads available on request) Two conductors twisted together to form a pair. One conductor insulated white with one black. Color code using printed number on each pair.
  4. COMPONENT SHIELD (optional) Shielded using Aluminum/Poly tape spirally wrapped in contact with a stranded tinned coated copper drain wire. Drain wire sizes shown in attached tables. Cables with individually shielded components are identified with an “IS” designation.
  5. ASSEMBLY Components cabled together with non-hygroscopic fillers as necessary.
  6. BINDER Cabled assembly helically wrapped with polyester binder tape.
  7. OVERALL SHIELD (optional) Cable shielded using Aluminum/Poly tape spirally wrapped in contact with a stranded tinned coated copper drain wire. Drain wire sizes shown in attached tables. Cables with an Overall Cable Shield are identified with an “OS” designation.
  8. JACKET (Type TPO) Flame Retardant, Low Smoke, Halogen Free, Thermoplastic Polyolefin meeting the IEEE Std 1580-2001 requirements for Type TPO jacket. Wall thickness as shown in attached tables.

    OR

    JACKET (Type L) Flame Retardant, Low Smoke, Halogen Free, Thermosetting, Cross-linked Polyolefin meeting the IEEE Std 1580-2001 requirements for Type L jacket. Wall thickness as shown in attached tables.
  9. ARMOR (Optional) Aluminum or Bronze Armor Braid available upon request
