Caledonian FIRETOX Cables
FIRETOX cables are constructed in the following typical design:
1. Solid/stranded annealed copper conductor
2. XLPE/LSZH as insulation
4. LSZH/flame retardant LSFROH as sheath
FIRETOX cables are offered in either single core, multicore or multi-pair constructions.
The insulation material can be thermosetting (XLPE, LSZH) or thermoplastic (EVA, LSZH) to meet different stringent environment requirement. The cables may be armoured or braided, with or without metallic screen, depending on different applications.
The FIRETOX cables manufactured by Caledonian comply with either one or combination of the following standards.
Fire Retardant PVC Sheathed Cables (FIRETOX)
Flame Retardant Power & Control Cables
600/1000V XLPE Insulated, LSZH Sheathed, Screened Power Cables (4 Cores)
This cable is designed specifi cally to suit the broad spectrum of requirements of Variable Speed
Drives and also include features for reducing the transmission of electromagnetic interference.
This range of screened cables drastically reduce interferences from electrical noise, especially in
Variable Speed Drive (VSD) applications and are manufactured with fixed conductors.
With shield conductivity of 1/10th of phase conductor conductivity, this range of VSD cables
effectively restrain radiated and conducted radio-frequency emissions.
Basic design adapted to IEC 60502-1
Conductor: Plain annealed copper wire, stranded according to IEC(EN) 60228 class 2.
Insulation: Extruded cross-linked XLPE compound.
