Instrumentation Cable

Instrumentation cable applies for optimal, lossless transmission of analogous and digital signals in measurement and process control technology. Suitable for intrinsically safe systems zone 1 and zone 2 group II classified areas acc. IEC 60079-14. Suitable for dry and humid rooms as well as outdoor use or laying underground.

Main industries for instrumentation cable application.

RE-cable is used for data transmission of measurement and control technology in:

  • Oil&gas industry
  • Refineries /petrochemical industry
  • Chemical industry

 

Further possibilities:

  • Pharmaceutical industry
  • Food industry
  • Paper industry
  • Power plants

 

Instrumentation cables in general for all types:

  • Conductor Temperature of +90°C (XLPE-wire insulation)
  • Nominal voltage: 300 V
  • Oil resistant: ICEA S-82-552
  • UV-resistant: UL 1581 Section 1200
  • Flame retardant acc. to IEC 60332-1-2 and IEC 60332-3-24 (Cat.C)
  • EN 50288-7

Electrical Screening

Overall screening by means of an aluminium foil with drain wire underneath

  • Prevents EMI to enter the cable
  • Prevents EMI to leave the cable

 

Individual screening of pairs

  • Eliminates Cross-Talk

1st Layer of Polypropylene tape

  • improves impedance by fixing cores
  • protects cores from drain wire

2nd Layer of Aluminium/Polyester foil

  • large overlap prevents leakage of HF signals
  • tinned drain wire prevents corrosion

3rd Layer of Polyester tape

  • protection to prevent earth loops
