Power Flex Cables  offers two different types of cables for use in primary airfield lighting circuits.  

Both non-screened cables and screened cables have a single AWG 8 copper conductor or a cross-section of 6.0mm².   

The conductor is mostly equipped with a conductor shield formed by a semi-conductive layer covered by SLPE insulation.  

Non-screened cables typically have no outer sheath.  

Screened cables on the other hand, have another semi-conductive layer covered by XLPE insulation and encased in a metallic screen in addition to an outer sheath.  

Both non-screened and screened cables perform well in primary airfield lighting circuits.   

Non-screened cables however, display high sensitivity to the tracking phenomenon under specific circumstances, leading to service interruption of the airfield circuit.   

Power Flex Cables offers coloured cables and outer sheathing to help identify different circuits.
