(N)SSHÖU Cables

Commonly used in the mining industry as tough flexible rubber power connections, the (N)SSHÖU cable are heavy-duty drilling and tunnelling equipment cables with a flame retardant, UV resistant outer sheath designed to withstand abrasions, cuts, tears and oils & greases. They can be used as power supply where high levels of mechanical stress and abrasion are expected.

Eland Cables' mining cable portfolio includes (N)SSHÖU O/J, (N)SSHÖU 3E, and (N)SSHÖU 3E+ST cable, all with a voltage rating of 600/1000V.

(N)SSHÖU cable can be submerged in water, including salt water, oily and sewage-contaminated water , up to a depth of 100m. They can be used in dry, damp, wet and hazardous envionrments.  

(N)SSHÖU cable construction

Conductor Flexible tinned copper (Class 5)
Insulation Rubber compound Type 3GI3
Individual Screen * Tinned copper wire braid (TCWB) up to 10mm2, copper wiress from 16mm2
Control Conductors * Flexible tinned copper (Class 5)
Inner sheath Rubber compound Type GM1b
Outersheath Heavy duty rubber compound Type 5GM5

* Eland Cables' range of (N)SSHÖU cables are available with control conductors and individual core screens on request.
