...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Tin coated, soft drawn, annealed, flexible, rope-lay stranded copper per ASTM B33/B172
  2. Separator Tape:Non-conducting tape applied between the conductor and insulation to facilitate stripping
  3. Insulation:Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR)
  4. Shield Separator:Non-conducting SBR tape applied to the phase insulation with a 50% overlap, adhesive side up
  5. Braid Shield:Tin coated, soft drawn, annealed, copper braid shield (60% minimum coverage), combined with color coded nylon (black, white, red) with a 40% maximum coverage
  6. Ground Check Conductor:Tin coated, soft drawn, annealed, rope stranded, flexible lay copper per ASTM B33/B172 with high strength yellow, polypropylene insulation
  7. Ground Conductors:Two uninsulated, tin coated, soft drawn, annealed, rope stranded, flexible lay copper per ASTM B33/B172
  8. Inner Jacket:Black, mold cured, extra heavy-duty integral fill, flame resistant, thermosetting Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE)
  9. Reinforcement:Reinforcing twine applied between the two jacket layers
  10. Outer Jacket:Black, mold cured, extra heavy-duty, flame resistant, thermosetting Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE). Alternate jacket colors available
  11. Reflective Stripe:Highly visible reflective stripe embedded into the outer jacket to increase safety and help prevent cable runover (optional, contact your sales representative for part number)

Applications and Features:

RHINOSHIELDTM Type SHD-GC is a heavy-duty trailing cable where flexibility and maximum protection is required. For use with mobile, reeling, or stationary mining equipment, continuous mining machines, longwall mining systems, and blast hole drillers. It is also an ex- cellent choice for shovels, draglines, dredges, cranes and marine shore-to-ship power supplies, and anytime extra-durable, flexible cable is required. Suitable for continuous submersion in water. Ground check conductor provides fail-safe ground monitoring. Embossed print legend for easy cable identification. Cold Bend and Impact Tested to -50°C.

    † Ampacity based on ICEA S-75-381 Table H-1 and is for a single isolated cable in air operated with an open-circuited shield at an ambient temperature of 40°C and a conductor temperature of 90°C
    †† Ampacity for #8 AWG is not present in the ICEA table. This value was calculated by Southwire Engineers.
