Airport Lighting Cable is a wire which is appropriate many different installations, as in conduit, ducts or direct burial. Airport lighting cable is for use in airport lighting circuits and control circuits. Airport cables come in a single conductor cable, which can be stranded, and soft annealed bare copper with sizes 8 - 4 AWG. FAA Airport Lighting Cable insulation is cross-linked polyethylene (XLP) 5000V * FAA L-824 Type C * ASTM B-3 and B-8.
Airport runway lighting cable are built for usage in between the constant current source and the isolating transformers in the series lighting circuits. Particularly lighting sources such as runways, taxiways, navigational aids, and obstruction lighting (such as LED, Xenon, and Incandescent light fixtures). It is fitted for use in direct burial connections, pulled into metallic or non-metallic conduit (but it is important that it not exceeds the pulling tension and sidewall bearing pressure limits). The XLPE insulated cables are rugged, have excellent abrasion and jam resistance, and are unaffected from de-icing fluid chemicals.
Manufactured in the U.S., and being lead free and RoHS compliant make this cable an attractive solution. It has insulation with top quality black, which is part of sunlight resistant, track-resistant cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE), having an optimal balance of electrical and mechanical characteristics assuring extended cable life. Conductor, Class B concentric strand soft drawn annealed copper per ASTM.
