Airport Ground Lighting Cables with shielded

VERI airport lighting cables can be found in terminals and in airports all over the world. These cables are suitable for operation at 600v or 5kv in wet or dry locations. Conductors shall be annealed copper. The insulation layer of cables with different voltages is different.

For example, the insulation layer of 600v cable should be a black cross-linked polyethylene insulation layer that is wear-resistant, moisture-proof and heat-resistant. The 5kv cable shall have a 20 mil extruded XLPE conductor shield. The voltage of 5kv cables should have cross-linked polyethylene that is abrasion, moisture, heat and track resistant.

The type of unshielded airport lighting cable is primarily used for series lighting circuits for runways, control systems, and other multi-purpose installations. It can be used for direct burial, conduit, or raceway.

The above airfield ground lighting cables consist of standard supply cables covering a wide range of specific applications and environments. Our cable products have been widely used in many airport buildings and airport runways. For more information about airport lighting cables, please contact us freely.

The Feature of Airport Lighting Cable

Airport lightning cable is flexible, lightweight, and fire-resistant in nature. The conductor can be of different materials of Aluminum/Copper. The airport lighting cables are semiconductive screened, which allows the cable to be safely operated continuously to the ground. In the cable industry, an insulator is a part that covers the conductor so that current cannot flow and cause any electrical failure. The insulator can be wire or any insulating material. PVC/XLPE insulation is responsible for a fire-resistant feature.

Airport lighting cables are built for usage in between the constant current source and the isolating transformers in the series lighting circuits. Particularly lighting sources such as runways, taxiways, navigational aids, and obstruction lighting. It is fitted for use in direct burial connections, pulled into metallic or non-metallic conduit.

Transportation with Professional Service

Veri Cable has multiple ways to protect your cables, with sturdy and professional shipping packaging and comprehensive insurance. Before shipping, our cables are packaged in wooden reels, and corrugated box coils. During transportation, to protect the cable ends from moisture, we seal with BOPP self-adhesive tape and non-hygroscopic.

The cables are available in 2 kV and 5 kV sizes, sheathed in PVC or high-density polyethylene (HDPE), and equipped with metal shielding and armoring as required. And it also meets the requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), as well as national standards, including the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA).
In addition to the above products, vericable also has airport terminal building cables aircraft ground power unit cables (GPUs), and other products.

We can also customize cables according to customer needs, and have professional cable sales representatives to solve any questions you may have on the purchase of cables.

If there are quality problems such as damaged packaging and product surface damage on the spot when the goods are received, if the goods are confirmed to be true, the goods do not match the order, and the quality problems found by the customer during the installation, laying and use process are confirmed to be the quality problems of the product itself, If the delivery is not in accordance with the contract requirements, please contact our company directly.
