...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Tin coated, soft drawn, annealed, flexible, rope-lay stranded copper per ASTM B33/B172
  2. Separator Tape:Semi-conducting tape applied between the conductor and insulation to facilitate stripping
  3. Conductor Shield:Semi-conducting cross-linked copolymer
  4. Insulation:Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) 100% Insulation Level
  5. Insulation Shield:Semi-conducting cross-linked copolymer
  6. Shield Separator:Semi-conducting SBR tape applied to the phase insulation with a 50% overlap, adhesive side up
  7. 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
  8. Ground Check Conductor:Tin coated, soft drawn, annealed, rope stranded, flexible lay copper per ASTM B33/B172 with yellow, high strength, polypropylene insulation
  9. Ground Conductors:Two uninsulated, tin coated, soft drawn, annealed, rope stranded, flexible lay copper per ASTM B33/B172
  10. Tape:SBR tape applied over the cabled core for improved mechanical integrity and ease of stripping
  11. Inner Jacket:Black, mold cured, extra heavy-duty modified integral fill flame resistant, thermosetting Chlorinated Polyethylene
  12. Reinforcement:Reinforcing twine applied between the two jacket layers
  13. Outer Jacket:Black, mold cured, extra heavy-duty, flame resistant, thermosetting Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE). Other colors available
  14. Reflective Stripe:Highly visible reflective stripe embedded into the outer jacket to increase safety and help prevent cable run-over (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.
