Instrumentation and compensation cables

  • Oil&Gas Onshore InstrumentationFire-safe, “mud-resistant” LV and MV cables are used for control and instrumentation at wellheads and manifolds/gathering systems.
  • IEEE 45 Type P versions exist for explosion-risk environments.

Light-blue sheathed Intrinsically Safe (IS) cables are available for installing separate power circuits to ensure the safety of electrical equipment where flammable materials are present. The PVC outer jacket is resistant to oil and gas, as well as being flame-resistant.

These cables are used to transmit analogue or digital signals in measurement and process control. Unarmoured cables can be used where there is no risk of mechanical damages.

Armoured cables are well adapted to underground use in industrial applications where chemical and mechanical protection ar needed. Lead covered and armoured cables are hydrocarbons resistant and have an enhanced resistance to aromatics. The Hypron® types offer an alternative to lead caveved cables.
