CTS APL G
These cables are built with a special foam-skin thermoplastic covering each copper conductor, ensuring both weight and nominal cable diameter reductions. Another advantage is the jelly-filled core, an extra protection against water penetration. Manufactured under strict quality levels, Nexans Brazil cables have good responses even at higher frequencies or mixed transmission technologies onto the same cable. Over a wide range of conductor diameters, pair capacity and different application possibilities, Nexans takes place as one of the largest cable supplier of the country.
StandardsNational : ABNT NBR 11880
Construction: Soft annealed bare copper conductor, 0.40 , 0.50 or 0.65mm nominal diameter, insulated with colored foam-skin polyethylene. The insulated conductors are twisted in pairs and assembled in layers and/or groups to form a substantially cylindrical core. The cable core is jelly-filled and bound with binder threads and/or a binder polyester tape and shielded by a flat polyethylene-clad aluminium tape (LAP - Laminated Aluminium Polyethylene), longitudinally applied. A black polyethylene jacket is extruded over the shield. Under the jacket, two ripcords are applied to ease the jacket removal. Service pairs may be available, according to the Brazilian Standard ABNT/NBR 11880, upon customer request.
Application: These cables are intended for analogical or digital signal transmissions.
Installation: Underground in duct lines or direct buried.
