How can we use Twin&Earth Cable?

2024-04-02
Latest company news about How can we use Twin&Earth Cable?

Twin and earth (often written "T&E" and sometimes "T and E") cable is a type of 300/500V flat sheathed electricity cable, containing two insulated current-carrying conductors and and a Circuit Protective Conductor (CPC = PE = Earth). In Australia and New Zealand this type of cable is referred to as 'Flat TPS' (Thermo-plastic sheathed), as well as "Twin and Earth" or "Twin with Earth". It is commonly used for fixed wiring in domestic and commercial premises. It is not intended to be used where it is subject to regular movement or sunlight, because the sheathing is affected by ultraviolet radiation.. It is suitable for laying in conduit or trunking where mechanical protection is required. Twin and Earth cable is a general fixed wiring and lighting cable, containing three conductors.
 

Minimum bending radius:
Diameter up to 10mm - 3 x overall diameter
Diameter 10mm to 25mm - 4 x overall diameter
(Based upon the larger dimensions)

 

The disadvantages of twin and earth cable?

It is not suitable for overhead catenary use. Twin and Earth cable is normally made with PVC sheathing and insulation, which has an almost indefinite life in the right conditions. However UV light will cause it to fail, so Twin and Earth is not suitable for use outdoors.It can also be made with low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) outer sheathing
