Type P Armored and Sheathed Multi- Conductor is yet another marine cable available at Nassau Electrical renowned for its features which ensure ultimate performance in the marine environment. This is a marine cable that has the abilities to operate in extreme temperatures as is often the case with the sea. With voltages of 600 V/ 1000 V, you can believe that it will transmit power in a way you can never believe. Let’s find out much more about this Type P marine cable. You have not met danger unless you have been in the deep waters and your surrounding seems to give in to the turbulences at sea. However, regardless of how hazardous your environment might prove you can count on Nassau Electrical Supply to provide you with the best marine cables there are in the world to withstand all manner of pressure and still perform as expected.

This multi conductor power cable has an 8 AWG dielectric through 777 kcmil soft annealed tinned copper flexible strand. Flexibility of any cable is an important aspect especially when it comes to installation because it makes the entire process easy. This is owed to the presence of the copper in the conductor. Copper has great benefits among them is flexibility and that is why it has continued to be used in the electrical scenery.

With color code per IEEE 1580 Table 22, the insulation of the type p cable is polyrad XT-125 irradiated cross- linked polyolefin (XLPO). The jacketing of the cable has been made with a black irradiated cros- linked chlorinated polyethylene (XL- CPE).

The cable core is cable with fillers when needed and also the core binder tape is made available upon request. This Type P cable is often used for the purposes of offshore gas and oil drilling, environments which can be very muddy and oily as well. For this reason, the sheath of the multi conductor cable is oil and mud resistant. This is to prolong the life of the cable and improve efficiency too. The sheath is made of black irradiated cross- linked chlorinated polyethylene (XL-CPE).

The cable is oil and mud resistant. This meets the NEK 606 mud oil requirements for power cables with ester based muds. This feature will ensure that neither mud nor oil gets in the way of what needs to be done and thus enhances performance of the cable. This marine cable also meets the UL 2225 crush and impact requirements of Type MC- HL cables. It is obvious that movements are bound to be experienced in ship. Sometimes these movements might be so magnanimous that the affect normal operations. But with this feature in place, you can trust that this cable will continue to carry out operations.

The copper strands of this multi- conductor are flexible not just to make it easy to install the cable but also terminate it. Flexibility also enables the user to easily bend the cable according to his or her needs. This cable can literally operate in any environment, either hot or cold. It’s cold bend test and cold impact test stand at -550 C and -400 C. its temperature has been rated 1250 C for long life, higher ampacities and protection from overloads as is often the case with marine.

For the sake of safety of those carrying out installation as well as those going to use the cable, it is always wise to go for cables that have been rated safe for use. The following are the ratings of the Type P multi conductor;

2.CSA C22.2 No. 245 type X110
3.IEEE 1580- 2010 Type P
4.IEC 60092 -350
5.Mud oil- resistant
6.UL 1309 Type X110
7.UL Listed 1100 C Marine Shipboard Cable

Flame test
You may never tell just when a fire may break out. That is why this cable has been taken through the following flame tests;

1.IEEE 1202
2.IEC 60332- 3- 22 Cat. A (Supersedes IEC 60332-3A)
3.CSA C22.2 No. 0.3 FT4

If you are in the oil and gas drilling industry, you might want to consider this cable. It suited for offshore gas and oil drilling platforms, MODUs, ships and FPSOs. It is also for use in land based oil and gas drilling rigs. Use it in class 1, division 1 and zone 1 dangerous locations when installed in accordance with API- RP 14F.
