Control cables with numbered cores for easier installation
February 2017, Enclosures, Cabling & Connectors
Equipment and machinery installations using the latest cabling technologies from Helukabel can contribute significantly to the ease of installation and overall success of a project.
A good example of this is the company’s clever JZ500 flexible control cable, which is designed to be super supple, yet strong enough to be used in the toughest industrial conditions where its oil and chemical resistance makes it ideal for tool room controls, conveyor applications, production lines, air condition and steel production, among others.
Another unique feature is the easy-to-read core identification to DIN VDE 0293 that has black cores with continuous white numbering (also available in other colours on request) for ease of installation, particularly where long runs are required or individual installers are working at different ends. The numbering, colours and other special requirements can also be ordered to suit different applications.
According to Helukabel’s Hardus van Dyk, the cables are designed for flexible use for applications requiring medium mechanical stresses with free movement, without tensile stress or forced movements and can be used in either dry, moist or wet rooms. Selected PVC compounds guarantee a good flexibility as well as an economic and fast installation.
Helukabel JZ500 is a special-PVC control cable adapted to DIN VDE 0285-525-2-51/DIN EN 50525-2-51. Other specifications and features include:
• Temperature range: flexing -15 to 80°C, fixed -40°C to 80°C.
• Breakdown voltage min 8000 V.
• Insulation resistance min 20 MΩ x km.
• Self-extinguishing and flame-retardant DIN VDE 0482-332-1-2, DIN EN 60332-1-2, IEC60332-1.
• Drag-chain compatible.
• Suitable for torsion.
• Meter marked.
• Easy to strip.
