XLPE Two Core Decoder Cable 2.5mm x 1mts-50mts
  • This cable has been custom designed specifically for Irrigation Installations. It consist of two cores of copper wire with conductors with a round profile area each of 2.5 sq.mm.
  • The Cable has three ply protection.
    • A tough outer polyethylene 'shell' (MDPE).
    • PVC Sheath around the copper wire, one coloured red and the other blue.
    • Insulation material between the sheaths and the shell. This material is XLPE or PEX and is made from high density polyethylene (HDPE). A 'cross-linking process is carried out during process.
  • The cross linking provides three key improvements to the material by:
    • Enhanced high temperature tolerance.
    • Reducing moisture permeability
    • Enhanced dielectric properties, which is is important for medium voltage -50kV AC.
    • The cable's outer shell is coloured bright orange to enhance visability.
