Apart from the above, SAMA KEBEL has invested in fire testing equipment and has
the capabilities to conduct its research and development activities in-house for flame
retardant (such as IEC 60332-3 test methods) and fire resistant wires & cables (such
as BS 6387 Cat. C, W & Z test methods). The ongoing R & D activities of SAMA
KEBEL may include the development of higher flame retardant wires & cables and
fire resistant wires & cables with better flexibility.

With products and services ranging from power cables, control cables,
instrumentation cables, telephone cables and fire resistant cables, the overall strategy
of SAMA KEBEL is to build businesses around a focus technology core in order to
obtain maximum leverage of its core competencies. One of the strengths of SAMA
KEBEL is its investment in R & D activities which allows the company to produce
environmental friendly wires & cables ( such as using unleaded PVC compounds and
LSHF compounds ) and also enhanced fire performance wires & cables, which in turn
enable SAMA KEBEL to extend its market share in the region.

Note: *Spacing larger than one cable diameter will result in larger voltage drop.
For cables having conductors greater than 16mm2 the voltage drop is given in three values; the impedance values are given as (mV/A/m)z, together with the resistive component (m/V/A/m)r
and the reactive component (m/V/A/m)x. For more details, please refer to BS 7671 : 1992, Requirements for Electrical Installations, IEE Wiring Regulations, 16th Edition.

Application
PVC insulated, non sheathed flexible cords are for installation in domestic areas,
kitchens and offices. The cables are also for usage in household equipments, eg.
washing machines, hair dryers, refrigerators, cookers and heaters. The cables are able
to withstand medium mechanical stress and frequent twisting and bending. The cables
are not suitable for permanent external installation nor for use directly or indirectly
underground.

ARMOURED & NON

FIRE-RESISTANT CABLE
600/1000V, LSHF Insulated, LSHF Sheathed Non-Armoured Fire Resistant Cables

Application
Non-armoured fire-resistant cables are for general application in power and signal
wirings where mechanical damages are not to be expected, not only for emergency
circuits but for areas where maintaining circuit integrity and/or control of fire spread
are deemed desirable. With a high level of fire resistance, the cables are durable and
flexible enough to be pulled into conduit and trunking, and are the cost effective
alternative to standard cable wiring systems. Due to its low smoke halogen free
compound which ensures flame retardant, low toxicity and acidic gases and smoke
emission, the cables increase chances of survival during fire breakout and are ideal for
installation in existing metal conduit or trunking to update existing alarm and lighting
systems previously wired in PVC cables in the public, commercial and industrial
environments. The cables are RoHS compliance and are suitable for continuous
operation at a maximum conductor temperature of 70 oC.

Identification of Single core – Natural SS 299 / BS 6387 CWZ
cores: Two core - Red and Black Testing Voltage : 3500V
Three core - Red, Yellow, Blue Min. Bending Radius : 8 X Overall Diameter

Laying Up : Cores stranded together. Where necessary,
binder tapes and non hygroscopic fillers may
be applied
