Specification No3121010325

1. Scope
The specification is suitable for the cable with cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE)
insulation and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) sheath used for distribution networks with
nominal voltage not exceeding 600 V. Under normal use, the conductor temperature can
reach 90. Under emergency situation, the conductor temperature can reach
130 (not more than 3 times in consecutive 12 months, in average not more than 36
hours each time). Under short-circuit situation, the conductor temperature can reach
250. (The maximum short-circuit duration is 5 seconds)
2. Cable Construction
2.1 Conductor
The conductor shall be annealed copper wire complying with CNS 1364
C2030, Annealed Electrical Copper Wire. The conductors more than 8
mm 2 shall be compact round. The pitch length on the outermost layer
shall be less than 20 times of the outer diameter of the conductor. The
lay direction of outermost layer shall be S lay.
2.2 Insulation
The insulation shall be cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) material. The
physical properties of insulation layer shall meet the requirements of the
Clause 4, and its minimum thickness of each point shall be not less than
90% of the appropriate value in the Attached Tables.
2.3 Identification of cores
It shall be made by colors of insulation surface. The color shall be as
follows:
Single core: primary.
Two cores: black and primary.
Three cores: black, primary, and red.
Four cores: black, primary, red, and green.
2.4 Stranding of cores
For multiple-core cable, cores shall be stranded in S lay. The gap may
be filled with appropriate material. The stranded cores shall be wrapped
with appropriate material into cylindrical with pitch conforming to
following table.
Number of cores

Maximum pitch

Outer diameter of core 30

Outer diameter of core 35

2.5 Sheath
The sheath shall be black polyvinyl chloride (PVC) material. The
physical properties shall meet the requirements of the Clause 4, and its
minimum thickness of each point shall be not less than 80% of the
appropriate value in the Attached Tables.

3. Identification
The following identification shall be printed with white ink on the cable
surface at intervals not more than 350 mm.
