CW1128/1198 Armoured Telephone Cable

CW1128/1198 telephone cables have a steel wire armour (SWA) to provide mechanical protection. Designed to connect external based telephone systems and services CW1128/1198 can be directly buried in the ground or run through underground ducting. The SWA armour also provides a rodent resistant barrier for use where vermin is present.

The CW1128/1198 outer sheath is made from tough, durable PE (polyethylene) or external grade PVC which is UV and sunlight resistant. The cores are protected in petroleum jelly to protect against the longitudinal ingress of water.

Standard conductor sizes are 0.5mm and 0.9mm, 0.6mm and 0.63mm can be manufactured to order. CW1128/1198 is designed to be terminated in IDC connectors therefore all conductor sizes are given as the copper strand diameter.
