SIWO-KUL™ 1.1 – 15.0 kV
Flexible single core connection cables
The connection cable Type SIWO-KUL is a very flexible single core cable. It is manufactured in the voltage range of 1.1 kV, 3.3-4.2 kV, 6.6-7.2 kV and 13.8-15.0 kV. The operating temperature forcontinuous service extends from –55°C up to 180°C. The use of silicone rubber, a high grade corona resistant insulationmaterial, gives the cableexcellent dielectric strength.
The braided synthetic yarn covering, which is applied directly over the insulation, gives the cable, because of its short braiding pitch and high compactness, an excellent mechanical protection by maintaining good flexibility.
The varnishing of the braiding results in good anti-friction properties, high abrasion resistance and excellent chemical resistance against transformer oil, light fuel oil and most types of cleaning agents.
In the event of fire, no corrosive and toxic gases will be given off. Hence, damage caused by fire can be kept to a minimum. Compared with other plastic insulated cables, SIWO-KUL generates only little smoke and is therefore defined as “low smoke grade” according to the Guideline For Fire Regulations.
Of course, the cable meets the requirements concerning fire propagation specified in IEEE 383 and IEC 60332-3 respectively. According to the French specification N.F.F.16.101, this cable is BF1 approved which means that it is in compliance with requirements for cables used inthe internal wiring of rail cars.
