Okonite® SWA TypeP-OS(Pairs/triads-Overall Shield) instrumentation cables are designed for use as instrumentation, process control, in Class 2 or 3 Power-Limited circuits where shielding against external interference is required, indoors or outdoors, in wet or dry locations with conductor operating temperatures up to 105°C, in cable trays, in raceways, supported by a messenger wire; in Class I,Division 2, Class II, Division 2 or Class III, Division 2 hazardous locations; suitable for diret burial. Also for use as Power Limited fire protective signaling cable (FPL) per NEC Code 760. For use on ITC non class 2 or 3 circuits up to 150 volts and 5 amps (750VA). The overall shield eliminates most of the static interference from the electric field radiated by power cables and other electrical equipment.
The wire armor provides excellent longitudinal strength for use as a messenger cable or for support in vertical drops (NEC Section 300-19) and provides physical protection against mechanical damage.
For dc service in wet locations X-Olene® insulation is recommended.
Conductors:Bare soft annealed copper, Class B, 7-strand concentric per ASTM B-8.
Insulation: Flame-retardant Okoseal® (PVC) per UL Standard 13 and 2250, 15 mils nominal thickness, 105°C temperature rating.
Conductor Identification: Pigmented black and white in pairs, black, red and white in triads. Pair or triad assembled with left-hand lay.
Assembly: Pairs or triads assembled with left hand lay. Fillers included where required to provide a round cable.
Cable Shield: Aluminum/Polyester tape over-lapped to provide 100% coverage, and a 7-strand tinned copper drain wire, same size as the conductor.
Inner Jacket: Black, flame-retardant, low temperature Okoseal®(PVC) per UL 13 and UL Standard 2250. A rip cord is laid longitudinally under the jacket to facilitate removal.
Wire Armor: A serving of soft annealed galvanized steel wires applied with a left-hand lay and 90% minimum coverage.
Outer Jacket: Black, flame-retardant, low temperature Okoseal per UL 13 and UL Standard 2250.
