Composite Cable 6 Core

Austdac Composite Cable 6 Core


Composite cable type A15 is designed for use as a conveyor lanyard in SILBUS or Dupline® network based conveyor emergency stop and PSACS1 Longwall systems.

The cable has a stainless steel braid under the outer sheath to provide mechanical strength to stop cable stretch. The tough polyurethane outer sheath provides wear resistance where the lanyard cable passes through roof support or loops.

Type A15 Composite cable consists of six polyethylene insulated conductors.

The cable has a low capacitance of 170pF/m and a low mutual inductance of 0.58uH/m. The all-important L/R is a low 25uH/Ω.

The outer sheath is available in yellow.

Every batch of Austdac cable is quality controlled, inspected and tested to ensure that the cable is within mechanical tolerance and the specified Exi electrical parameters Cc, Lc and Lc/Rc are not exceeded.

This gives our customer’s confidence in the safety of their installations knowing that any IEC/AS/NZS 60079-25 installation assessment is using reliable and safe cable data.

The A15 composite cable is typically fitted with our unique slip ring plug and socket arrangement (see above image). This becomes particularly useful when used on longwalls during roof support movement. The slip rings allow the cables to rotate 360°.
