Low smoke, zero halogenated Okonite Communication Cables for transit systems are designed for use in aerial and tunnel installations where these features are desired. They are ideally suited for transit communications systems.
ConstructionConductors: 16, 19, and 22 AWG solid, uncoated copper wires. A thermoplastic compound, color coded per telephone industry standards.
Core Assembly: Insulated conductors are twisted into pairs with varying lengths of lay to minimize cross-talk. Pairs are oscillated into cable or units with identifying non hygroscopic binders. Concentric/oscillated construction through 25 pairs and unit construction for larger cables. A non-hygroscopic core tape is applied over the cable core as a dielectric and heat barrier.
Shield: A .005” copper tape is longitudinally applied with an overlap and corrugated to increase flexibility.
Jacket: The black jacket is resistant to abrasion, moisture, weather and environmental cracking. It meets the requirements of ICEA S-73-532. The jacket is surface printed with year of manufacture, product description and sequential footage marks at two foot intervals.
Manufactured to ICEA S-56-434.
