STUB CABLES, with Aluminum Moisture Barrier, Type EES, of Sizes 10, 20, 30, 50, 100 and 200 pairs are used between Manholes and cabinets.
General Specification : Saudi Telecom Specification TS -2001 & IEC 60708
Conductor : Solid annealed plain copper wire as per ASTM B 3.
Insulation : Each Conductor shall be covered with continuous layer of Solid High Density Polyethylene. Color of Insulation as per Table-1 & Table-2.
Assembly : Two Insulated conductors twisted together to form a pair. 10 Pairs are assembled to form a sub-unit. Up to 100 pairs, these sub-units are assembled to form the cable. For cables above 100 pairs, 5 and 10 sub-units are assembled to form a unit of 50 and 100 Pairs respectively.
Moisture Barrier : Aluminum Tape, coated on both sides with co-polymer as per ASTM B 736, is applied longitudinally with a suitable overlap to prevent the ingress of water to the cable.
Sheath : Extruded black Linear Low Density Polyethylene, as per ASTM D 1248, continuously bonded to the aluminum tape to prevent of water penetration to the core and the transport of water between the sheath and the tape.
