INTRODUCTION
All cable designs covered in this publication generally conform to BS 5467 or IEC 60502 Part-1 for XLPE and BS 6346 or IEC 60502
Part-1 for PVC insulated cables suitable for working voltages 600/1000 Volts and 3300 volts. The general types of cables are:
1. XLPE Power cables (Armoured/Unarmoured)
2. PVC Power Cables (Armoured/Unarmoured)
3. Control or Auxiliary Cables (Armoured/Unarmoured/Screened/Unscreened)
4. Special Category Cables:
OCI also manufactures cables conforming to other National or International standards with specific customer requirements. This
includes cables with MDPE Sheath, Fire Retardant Cables (FR), Fire Retardant and Low Smoke PVC Sheathed Cables (FRLS), Fire
Retardant and Reduced Toxic emission PVC sheathed cables (FRRT), Low Smoke Halogen Free Sheathed Cables (LSF). Also, cables
with special PVC compound with anti-termite and anti-rodent properties can also be supplied upon request.
Medium Density Polyethylene (MDPE) Sheathing compound shall meet the requirements of Type ST7 to IEC 60502-1 and Type TS2
as per BS 7655-10.1. All dimensional details of such cables shall be same as cables as per IEC 60502-1 and BS 5467.
LSF Sheathed Cables shall comply with the requirements of BS 6724 and LSF material shall comply with the requirements of Type
ST8 compound to IEC 60502-1 and Type LTS1 compound as per BS 7655.
Based on specific requirement, OCI can also provide copper wire armoured cables or additional tinned copper wires in the armour,
swellable tapes under and over armour, steel tape armoured cables etc.
The above cables are supplied in Wooden/Steel drums covered with Lamiflex lagging as a standard practice.
TECHNICAL ADVISORY SERVICES
OCIs staff includes specialist Engineers with wide knowledge and decades of long experience in the field of cables and their
applications. This time tested technical expertise and experience is available to all clients in the selection of appropriate cable
design/specifications.

OCI/PBPC/Rev-001/010909

CABLE CONSTRUCTION
&
MANUFACTURING PROCESS
Conductor

Copper or Aluminium used for the Conductors obtained in the form of 8.0 mm Copper rods or
9.5 mm Aluminium rods. After testing, rods are drawn into wires of required sizes. These wires are formed
into final Conductor in the stranding machines under strict Quality surveillance..

Insulation

Cross linked polyethylene compound or PVC is insulated over the conductors by extrusion process.
The raw materials and thicknesses of Insulation are maintained as per standards and conform to
B.S. 5467 / IEC 60502 Part-1 or B.S. 6346 / IEC 60502 Part-1 Standards as the case may be.

The Cores of cables are identified either by colour or by numbers as follows:

Laying up

: The insulated cores are laid up with a right hand, or alternating left & right hand, direction of lay in the sequence
of the core numbers or colours. Where necessary non-hygroscopic fillers and binder tape is used to form a
compact and reasonably circular cable.

Bedding

: All armoured cables have extruded PVC bedding. PVC used for bedding is compatible with the temperature of
Insulation material.

Armour

: When armouring is required, the armour consists of single layer of galvanised steel wires/galvanized steel tapes.
The armour is applied helically as per standards.
Single core cables are armoured with Aluminium Wires or Copper wires based on requirement.

Outersheath

: Standard cables are manufactured with Extruded black PVC Type-9 or ST-2. Outersheath is embossed or printed
with the information required by relevant standards.
Special FR, FRLS, FRRT, LSF, MDPE compounds are used for outersheathing of cables, to suit customers
specific requirements.

NOTES ON FRLS AND FR SHEATHED CABLES


Oxygen Index (ASTM D-2863)
The criterion for burning is presence of percentage of oxygen in air. By mixing oxygen and nitrogen at various percentages this test
finds what percentage of oxygen the standard specimen starts burning. Higher the oxygen index higher the resistance to get ignited.
Min. oxygen index shall be 30%.
Temperature Index (ASTM D- 2863)
Temperature index is the temperature at which the oxygen index of the material becomes 21.This set is carried out usually by
extrapolation after the oxygen index is measured at the room temperature. Minimum temperature shall be 250 C.
Smoke Density (ASTM D-2843)
This parameter relates to measuring and observing relative amounts of smoke produced by the burning or decomposition of
materials. This test is carried out in accordance with ASTMD-2843. The measurements are made in terms of loss of light transmission
through a collected volume of smoke produced under control standardized conditions. Generally requirement by customer is smoke
density rating less than 60.
Acid Gas Emission (IEC-60754-1)
During burning of cable materials acid gases are evolved especially hydrogen chloride. The gas emission is evaluated accordance
with test method IEC 754-1, where approximately 1 gm. of the material is pyrolysed at 800 0C in a combustion tube and resultant
gases analysed.
Flame Retardance (IEC 60332 Part I)
A single cable sample is clamped vertically. The Bunsen or other similar burner is arranged at 45 Degree to the axis of the cable
sample, applying flame at 475mm below to top clamp. The flame is applied for a period of time depending upon the weight of the
cable.
The test requirement is that after all burning has ceased the charred or affected portion shall not have reached within 50mm from
the top clamp.
Flame Retardance Test (IEC 60332 -3)
This test is carried out to check flame retardant properties of bunched cables. Three categories of tests namely class "A", "B" and "C"
have been defined according to quantity of combustible material available over unit length. Cable pieces are tied on vertical ladder
and flame is applied from a horizontal ladder. After the specified time the burner is removed. All parameters are pre defined according
to specification. The charred portion is measured and compared with the standards to decide on acceptability.

Current rating of Cables:


Current rating of Cables given below are based on the ERA (Electrical Research Association) report.
ERAs report is accepted world wide and hence this report of current carrying capacity is referred by

BS 5467 & BS 6346 standards.


ERA publication 69-30, Part V can be referred for sustained current ratings of XLPE insulated cables.
ERA publication 69-30, Part III can be referred for sustained current ratings of PVC insulated cables.
