Cables for special applications, e.g. as a single-core railway traction current cable for direct current and alternating current. Also as a return current cable in direct current systems up to 1.8/3 kV.

Preferably for connections in overhead lines and rails, for laying in pipe conduits and trough channels, however not directly in the ground.

The regulations and standards of the transport services apply for the selection of railway traction current cables.

Errors and omissions excepted, weights and dimensions are approximate values.
Other designs, fitted lengths and larger delivery lengths on request.
Tensile force only valid when cable sheath and cable core involved.
The bending radius one-off is for professionally installed cables, unique molding over a stencil and a cable temperature >30 ° C.
