Product information of the U-1000 RVFV
These U-1000 RVFV cables are suitable for direct burial without additional protection or for installation on cables trays or in ducts where mechanical protection is necessary.
- UV resistant
- Flame retardant
- Double Steel Tape Armour (DSTA)
Applicable in ATEX zones
Cables used in ATEX zones need to comply with certain (construction) requirements. The U-1000 RVFV meets these requirements. We will give you two examples. Empty spaces between the cores are not allowed as this makes the transportation of flammable liquids and gasses possible. Therefore, the bedding or the inner sheath of the cable needs to be pressed. Another requirement is that the outer sheath of the cable must be made of an elastomer, a thermoplastic or a thermoset material.
Advantages of the U-1000 RVFV
Cables that are not UV resistant will be affected when they are exposed to direct sunlight. The U-1000 RVFV is UV resistant and can therefore be used above ground in the open air. The outer sheath of the cable will not be harmed by the ultra-violet light which normally dries out a cable or causes cracks or bursts in the sheath. This will preserve the functionality of the cable.
Cables used to be responsible for spreading fire. The U-1000 RVFV is flame retardant. This means that this cable is designed in a way that it will not spread fire. Cables with these advantages are often used in buildings and at locations where people live, work and travel / move.
Double Steel Tape Armour (DSTA)
The interior of the cable is completely sealed because of a double layer of galvanized steel tape. The second layer of tape covers the seams of the first layer of tape. This protects the U-1000 RVFV from sharp objects. Another advantage is that the armouring serves as a shield against electromagnetic fields.
