Electric and fibre optic cable manufacturer Tratos has launched a new BS 8436:2011 low voltage cable for installation in partition walls and behind plaster. The new cable is a cost-effective alternative to traditional conduit wiring and small sizes of armoured cable. A multi-core wiring cable with an aluminium screen directly under the outer sheath, the new 300/500V Tratos cable was put through its paces during a Nail Penetration Test. The purpose of the test is to determine whether the metallic screen will carry the fault current required for a protective device to operate within a given time if the cable is penetrated by a nail or similar fixing. The requirement of the standard is that when six samples of the completed cable are tested, there shall be no failure of any sample at the selected test current. The new Tratos cable passed with flying colours.
Tratos Ltd exhibited a range of its products designed specifically for the railway industry at SPE Offshore Europe 2011 Oil and Gas Conference and Exhibition (6-8th September) in Aberdeen where its subsea umbilical cables will take centre stage. SPE Offshore Europe attracts thousands of professionals in the upstream industry – including engineers, technical specialists, industry leaders and experts – providing them with the opportunity to engage suppliers face-to-face. Tratos, whose primary market is the oil and gas industry, showed its extensive range of hydraulic, electro-hydraulic and electrical umbilical cabling for subsea oil and gas extraction and Oil&Gas BS6883 cables.
