Product information of the VO-YmvKasmb 0.6kV-1kV
A power and control cable for general use in low voltage installations up to 1 kV, suitable applications indicated in NEN 1010. Suitable for direct burial and above ground installations. The multicore versions are mainly used as auxiliary current cables or for measurement and control purposes.
- UV resistant
- Flame retardant
- Tinned Copper Wired Braiding (TCWB)
Applicable in ATEX zones
Cables used in ATEX zones need to comply with certain (construction) requirements. The VO-YmvKasmb 0.6kV-1kV 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 VO-YmvKasmb 0.6kV-1kV
Cables that are not UV resistant will be affected when they are exposed to direct sunlight. The VO-YmvKasmb 0.6kV-1kV 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 VO-YmvKasmb 0.6kV-1kV 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.
Tinned Copper Wired Braiding (TCWB)
The advantage of a tinned copper wired braiding is that it protects the VO-YmvKasmb 0.6kV-1kV from outside electromagnetic fields. This kind of armouring is widely applied to flexible cables where corrosion occurs due to (weather) conditions, like in the offshore. An additional advantage of the TCWB armouring is that it strengthens the cable.
