STUB CABLES, without Aluminum Moisture Barrier, Type EE, of Sizes 10, 20, 30, 50 and 100 pairs are used as Stub cables for NCL-type and NFP-type terminal blocks in LME cabinets and distribution points respectively.
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. The Final Assembly is covered with non-hygroscopic tape.
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.
