    B2ca-s1a,d1,a1 (1x) & B2ca-s1b,d1,a1 (2x/3x/3G/4x/4G/5G).

    Other fire performance features (when CPR Regulation is not applicable):
    Flame retardant, fire retardant, halogen-free and low gas and smoke emission with low opacity/toxicity/corrosivity/conductivity
    (IEC 60332-1-2, IEC 60332-3-24, IEC 60754-1, IEC 60754-2 and IEC 61034-2).
  • Type of installation:
  • User´s guide:
    Especially suitable as a power, command or control cable for fixed installations in tunnels and railway infrastructures, public access premises (hospitals, airports, schools...), places with fire or explosion hazard, high-rise buildings and whenever its special fire performance behaviour is required.

    Suitable for indoor and outdoor (protected from direct and continuous exposure to UV radiation) installations on supports in the air, in conduits or directly buried.

    — Temperature ranges:
    • Maximum continuous conductor operating temperature: +90 ºC.
    • Maximum continuous conductor short-circuit temperature (t≤5s) : +250 ºC.
    • Maximum ambient temperature: +70 ºC (higher temperatures limits current-carrying capacities).
    • Minimum ambient temperature: -30 ºC (static, permanently installed, protected against mechanical damage, without exposure to movement, mechanical damages, shocks, or vibrations).
    • Minimum temperature for cable laying during installation and assembly of accessories: 0 ºC. Under normal conditions of care. This temperature is valid for the cable itself and not for the environment. If possible, the temperature of the cable shall be raised before laying, e.g., in a heated building, to facilitate handling and reduce the risk of damages.

    — Minimum bending radius: 4xD (D<25); 5xD(25≤D≤50); 6xD(D>50). D = overall diameter of the cable in mm. Bending nearby the temperature limits should be carried out extra carefully.

    — Maximum pulling force:
    If the traction force is applied on the copper conductors: F = 50 x S (N). S = cross-sectional area of the conductors (in mm2).
    If the traction force is applied on the oversheath: F = 5 x D2 (N). D = overall diameter of the cable (in mm).
    It is assumed that the cable route is well designed for the laying procedure with well-established curves and enough cable rollers. Special attention shall be paid to the required minimum bending radius.
