Instrumentation Cable Core Identification
  • Pair – Black – Light Blue
  • Triple – Black – Light Blue – Brown
BFOU-HCF Instrumentation Cable Construction Code Letter BFOU-HCF 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.
Inner covering F Flame retardant and halogen-free thermoset compound
Tape over inner covering PET tape
Cable armour/screen O Tinned copper wire braid
Tape over armour/scree PET tape
Cable outer sheath V Flame retardant, halogen-free and oil resistant thermoset compound (Therban), SHF2 (IEC 60092-360)
HCF Protection – HCF Extruded heatblock compound
Tape Lapped glassfibre tape
Cable outer sheath Flame retardant, halogen-free thermoplastic compound, SHF1 (IEC 60092-360)
