Prysmian Draka BFCU Offshore Cable Applications

Instrumentation Cable nek ts 606

Fixed installation for instrumentation, communication, control and alarm systems in both EX- and safe areas, emergency and critical systems where requirement for fire resistance exists. Meets the mud resistant requirements in NEK TS 606:2009. Cables have extended fire resistant (XFR) properties to IEC 60331-1&2 including water spray according to EN 50200 Annex E (90 minutes).

Instrumentation Cable Core Identification
  • Pair – Black – Light Blue
  • Triple – Black – Light Blue – Brown
  • Quad – Black – Light Blue – Brown – Grey
BFCU Instrumentation Cable Construction Code Letter BFCU Instrumentation Cable Description
Conductor Tinned annealed stranded circular copper (STCC), IEC 60228 class 2
Insulation B Mica-tape + EP-rubber, IEC 60092-360 (EPR)
Pair / Triple / Quad twisting Color coded cores twisted together. Pairs/Triples are screened by copper backed polyester tape with tinned copper drain wire. Each pair/triple is wrapped with polyester tape to prevent electrical contact with adjacent pairs/triples. Pairs/triples are identified by numbered tape or by numbers printed directly on the insulated conductors.
Lay up, Shielding Individually shielded pairs/triples/quads are laid up in concentric layers and wrapped with a PETP tape.
Inner covering F Flame retardant and halogen-free thermoset compound
Tape over inner covering PET tape + rubberized Polyamide tape
Cable armour/screen C Galvanized steel wire braid
Tape over armour/scree PET tape + rubberized Polyamide tape
Cable outer sheath U Flame retardant, halogen-free and mud resistant thermoset compound, SHF2 (IEC 60092-360)
