Special Cables / Mining and Tunneling Cables / Tratos AS/NZS Mining Cables

Type 1 Heat resistant PVC Insulated, individual composite copper/polyester braid  screened, Heat resistant PVC covered machine cable.

These cables can be used for fixed apparatus (e.g. power, lighting and control circuitry), for the internal wiring on fixed and mobile machines in coal mines where flexibility and exposure to heat is not an issue. Even when installed in fixed situations they may be subject to arduous stresses and vibrations resulting from machine movement, e.g. a longwall shearer or continuous miner cutting coal. These cables may also be used in other applications where a risk assessment has been carried out to establish their suitability to meet the more onerous conditions existing for cables used below ground in coal mines. Type 1 cables require further mechanical protection  when used external to the machine or equipment in non-protected applications.

Collective screened cable is available on request

Cables intended for reeling and trailing applications are covered by AS/NZS 1802, Electric cables—Reeling and trailing—For underground coal mining purposes.
