Application

These cables are intended for use in railway signalling systems having a maximum voltage rating of 650/1100 volts being power frequency rating to earth and 1100 volts being the core-to-core rating. Cables are suitable for use in d.c. circuits where the nominal voltage to earth does not exceed 1100 volts. Type A cables are predominantly for internal wiring or protected applications in relay rooms, signal boxes and other indoor applications. Type B cables are for fixed trackside applications, the RS2 HD-PCP sheath affording protection against the environment and the typical fluids encountered trackside. Type C cables are for similar trackside applications, the class 5 flexible conductors giving flexibility and ease of installation, the RS2 HD-PCP sheath affording protection against the environment and the typical fluids encountered trackside. Type C3 screened cable are specifically designed for Train Protection & Warning (TPWS) Systems. Type D cables are for fixed trackside applications within tunnels and areas where improved fire performance is required, the ZHLS sheath being suitable for installation trackside using traditional railway cables application techniques. Type E cables are for similar trackside applications within tunnels and areas where improved fire performance is required, the class 5 flexible conductors giving flexibility and ease of installation, the ZHLS sheath being suitable for installation trackside using traditional railway cables application techniques. Type C3 screened cable are specifically designed for Train Protection & Warning (TPWS) Systems.
