Abstract:

Flexible telecommunication cables and jumper wires are packed and formed as multipaired units in switching and main-repeater stations. Due to high values of electronic equipment, telecommunications systems and buildings, the following properties are required in case of fire all cable and wire components contain nohalogens no flame propagation, self extinction, no dripping low smoke density, reduced toxicity, calorific values. Electrical and mechanical properties are to be similar to PVC cables on the whole. The approach discussed here makes use of non-cross-linked, thermoplastic materials which can be processed in existing, conventional extrusion lines economically. The new thermoplastics are suitable for insulation and sheathing, as a substitute for some plastics. Typical and standardized cable designs and their properties are shown. Author
