Questions and answers on our cables for tunnel construction

To simplify the complexity and resale of bought-back trailing cables, we only supply the FABER® (N)3GHSSYCY, FABER® (N)3GHSSHCH and FABER® TBM (N)TSCGECWHXÖU trailing cables in 12/20 kV from stock.

On request, we supply suitable medium-voltage cable terminations for our RSTI angled and separable connectors from TE available from stock as standard – also in combination with our medium-voltage tunnel junction boxes that are available from stock. For mobile applications, we recommend our medium-voltage plug-in system Faber® S-MV24 up to 24 kV, which we can supply from production facility in Germany with short delivery times. The all-new plug-in system dispenses with moulded contacts and is simply crimped and linked to each other using male/female connectors. Alternatively we can supply any international standard coupling system according to customer requirements.

Unlike Class 2 aluminium cables, the rubber cable 07BN4-AF offers excellent properties with current carrying capacity thanks to the use of XLPE insulation. The XLPE compound supports higher electrical properties so that cables with the same cross-section such as with copper can even support slightly higher current carrying capacities. The wire is also robust enough to perfectly protect the softer strand material. Several tunnel construction reference projects have already confirmed this robustness. The rubber cable 07BN4-AF is an affordable cost- and weight-saving alternative that can be used with a fixed installation even up to 1,000 V.

Our wide-ranging team of specialists can also install cables and wires professionally on site. Our cable repair service provides rapid assistance on site to remedy cable damage and restore low- and medium-voltage cables with integrated fibre optics – with a full 12-month warranty.
