A)

Identification of not individually screened pairs


Two-pair unscreened or overall screened cables are colour coded in clockwise order
of rotation: black, blue, green, brown.
All other cables up to 50 pairs conform to the coding of following table:

Pair-No.

mm flexible, 0.75 mm flexible or 1.5 mm stranded
Insulation............... polyethylene PE
Colour code........... black / white / red;
continuously numbered on cores (1-1-1, 2-2-2 ..)
Wrapping................ at least 1 layer of plastic tape
Collective screen... 24 m aluminium / PETP tape over tinned copper
drain wire, 0.5 mm
Bedding.................. polyvinyl chloride PVC, black
Metal sheath........... lead alloy
Bedding.................. polyvinyl chloride PVC, black
