BFOU Instrumentation Cable Construction Code Letter BFOU Instrumentation Cable Description
Conductor Tinned annealed stranded circular copper (STCC), IEC 60228 class 2
Insulation B EP-rubber, IEC 60092-360 (EPR)
Pair / Triple / Quad twisting Color coded cores twisted together and wrapped with polyestertape. Pairs/Triples are laid up collectively and screened by copper backed polyester tape with tinned copper drainwire. Pairs/triples are identified by numbered tape or by number sprinted 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 thermoplastic compound
Tape over inner covering PET tape
Cable armour/screen O Tinned annealed copper wire braid
Tape over armour/scree PET tape
Cable outer sheath U Flame retardant, halogen-free and mud resistant thermoset compound, SHF2 (IEC 60092-360)
