Split concentric cables, manufactured in accordance with British Standard BS7870
, are largely used by Distribution Network Operators (DNO) for providing final service connection to customer properties. Other applications include sub-main connections within high rise buildings and street light systems. This cable has a Voltage Rating of 600/1000V.
With a Class 2 stranded copper conductor and further Class 1 copper Neutral and Earth Continuity Conductors, as well as a Type TM1 Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) oversheath, the cables are designed for direct burial. The blue polymeric covering of the neutral conductor ensures greater corrosion resistance. This Split Concentric cable also has a Non-Hydroscopic string separator (the same diameter as the earth continuity conductor) and overlapped synthetic binder tape.
