The Function of Control Cable's Shield

March 14, 2022

Shielded control cable is generally used as the connecting line of electrical instruments, which is suitable for the connecting line of electrical instruments with AC rated voltage of 450 / 750V and below and the transmission line of automatic control system. It has excellent properties such as oil resistance, waterproof, wear resistance, acid and alkali resistance, various corrosive gases, aging resistance and non combustion.
Shielded control cable is a cable with a layer of mesh copper wire or metal wire braided around one or more wires. This layer of mesh wire can prevent lightning stroke, and external signals can not interfere with its. The shielding layer can also play a certain role in leakage protection.
If the cable is damaged and electric leakage occurs during use, the shielding layer can lead the leaked current to the grounding wire, which plays a certain role in safety protection. At the same time, it can also protect the cable conductor.
The function of shielding layer and grounding wire of shielding control cable is: the shielding layer is divided into internal shielding and external shielding. They are all designed to make good contact between the cable conductor and the insulating layer, and between the cable insulating layer and the inner protective layer, so as to eliminate the increase of surface electric field intensity caused by the unsmooth surface of the conductor and the inner protective layer
Service characteristics of shielded control cable:
(1) Allowable bending radius of cable: the minimum bending radius of non armored cable is 6 times of the outer diameter of the cable. Fluoroplastic insulated and sheathed cables shall be at least 8 times of the outer diameter of the cable. Copper tape shielded or steel tape armored cable shall be at least 12 times of the outer diameter of the cable.
(2) Maximum working temperature: the insulation of polyperfluoroethylene propylene (F46) shall not exceed 200 ℃. Soluble polytetrafluoroethylene (PFA) insulation shall not exceed 260 ℃.
(3) Minimum ambient temperature: PVC sheath: fixed laying - 40 ℃, non fixed laying - 15 ℃. Fluoroplastic and silicone rubber sheath: fixed laying - 60 ℃, non fixed laying - 20 ℃. The cable installation and laying temperature shall not be lower than 0 ℃ (fluoroplastic, silicone rubber and nitrile sheathed cable shall not be lower than - 25 ℃).
