Sensor Comms Cable

Austdac Sensor Comms Cable


Cable type A09.x; part number CAC2P2FNP(1) is designed for sensor power and signal networks where the power and signal circuits are considered individual intrinsically safe circuits. The 4mm2 pair provides power to the sensor while the 1mm2 pair carries the output signal from the same sensor.

The BMA cable consists of two main elements, an screened 4mm2 twisted pair and a screened 1mm2 twisted pair.

The 4mm2 pair is made up of 56 strands of 0.3mm tinned copper wire while the 1mm2 pair is made up of 32 strands of 0.2mm tinned copper wire to provide maximum strength and flexibility. All conductors are insulated with PVC

The 4mm2 pair is screened using a foil tape and a 24/0.2 (0.75mm2) TC drain conductor.

The 1mm2 pair is screened using a foil tape and a 24/0.2 (0.75mm2) TC drain conductor.

This cable has particularly good L/R ratios despite the large CSA of the conductors.

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

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