3M LVI-1/5-PT

Resin Cable Joint

3M LVI-1/5-PT Scotchcast resin cable joints are used to straight joint or splice copper multi-core or multi-pair armoured polymeric Pilot & Telecom cables 0.9-2.5sqmm.

The 3M Scotchcast 470W Resin is in compliance with EU regulation 1907/2007/EC (REACH) – the LVI range of cable joints manufactured by 3M Electrical are compatible with either Cembre connectors (crimp type) or Pfisterer Sicon (mechanical shearbolt) technology.

BS5308 & BS EN 50288-7

The BS5308 British Standard for cables was superseded by Harmonised Standard BS EN 50288-7 (Multi-element Metallic Cables Used In Analogue & Digital Communication/Control – Sectional Specification For Instrumentation & Control Cables) – a publicly available version of the Standard was published as PAS5308 in 2009. PAS 5308 incorporates additional aspects not covered in the harmonised European standard for control and instrumentation cables:

  1. Cable standard includes higher voltage cables for heavy power applications, such as hazardous area petrochemical plants
  2. Provides detailed cable construction tables, showing actual dimensions for the full range of cable types as previously specified in BS 5308-1:1986

British Standard BS5308 covered specifications for a range of instrumentation cables – including Polyethylene (PE), Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Cross-Linked Polyethylene (XLPE) and Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) cable insulation materials and armoured (SWA) instrumentation cables.

  • BS5308 Part 1 – PE insulated instrumentation cables – British Standard BS5308 Part 1 specifies both the requirements and the dimensions of PE insulated cables in pairs with or without screen(s). Option to include a single wire armour or single wire armour with a lead sheath. Part 1 is sub- categorised as Types 1, 2 & 3.
  • BS5308 Part 1 Type 1 – Unarmoured – collectively screened (CAM) and individually & collectively screened. PE insulated and PVC oversheathed.
  • BS5308 Part 1 Type 2 – Armoured – collectively screened and also individually & collectively screened. PE insulated, PE bedded, single wire armoured (SWA) and PVC oversheathed.
  • BS5308 Part 1 Type 3 – Armoured – collectively screened or individually & collectively screened. PE insulated, PVC bedded, lead alloy oversheath, single wire armoured and PVC oversheathed.
  • BS5308 Part 2 – PVC insulated instrumentation cables – British Standard BS5308 Part 2 specifies requirements for PVC insulated cables, in multicore and multi-pair construction, with or without screens. It provides the option to incorporate a single wire armour. Part 2 is further categorised as Types 1 & 2.
  • BS5308 Part 2 Type 1 – Unarmoured construction – PVC insulated and PVC oversheathed.
  • BS5308 Part 2 Type 2 – Armoured construction – PVC insulated, PVC bedded, single wire armoured and PVC oversheathed.

Cable joints are available for power, control and instrumentation cables in resin cast, Cold Shrink and heat shrink technologies – read our Blog to understand the features and benefits of using Cold Shrink to insulate, protect, repair or joint cables.
