Mining power flexible screened explosion-proof cables

TU U 31.3-31850229-005-2003



GESHuS-PB 1.14 kV
(- 1.14 kV)

Cables are designed to connect mining movable machines and mechanisms to power systems at rated voltage up to 1.14 kV AC, 50 Hz at main conductors and up to 0.220 kV 50 Hz at auxiliary conductors.

Cables are designed for operation at ambient temperature from -30 C up to +50 C and (98±2) % relative air humidity at temperature (35±2) C.



Multicore copper round conductors (not less 5 class in accordance with GOST 22483 – 77).

Insulation of main and auxiliary conductors
Polyvinylchloride (PVC) compound of low hardness.

Screen over main conductors
Electroconductive compound.

Earth conductor
Earth conductor is divaricated on individual cores and consists from three cores; the total cross-section is not less than 10 mm. Elastic screen from electroconductive compound laid over each of the individual cores of earth conductor.

Auxiliary conductors
Four insulated auxiliary conductors and three screened earth conductors are twisted together in cable core. The elastic screen from electroconductive compound is laid over the cable core.

Main insulated conductors stranded around screened cable core. Intervals between screened cable core and main conductors are filled by insulated cable bundles of synthetic thread during twisting.

Two-layer polyvinylchloride compound of low hardness oversheath is laid over stranded conductors of cable. Oversheath is reinforced by steel-copper braid. Upon customers request allow strengthening cable oversheath by another materials do not impairing the strength characteristics of the cable.
