PeT Cellular Local Network Cable
PACW/Cell PE Insulation/PJ Filled/PE Sheathed/Steel Wire Armour/PE Oversheath
External Telephone Cable (Complies with BT Specification CW1128/1198)
CW1128/1198 (with armour but no screen) / 0.40Cu
The cable is designed primarily for direct burial in the ‘D’ or Secondary
side of local telecommunications networks. The cable core comprises
units of cellular polyethylene insulated twin conductors flooded with
petroleum jelly and wrapped with a paper tape. The cable core is then
covered with a black polyethylene inner sheath. A layer of galvanised
steel armour wires is then applied over the inner sheathed cable and an
outer sheath of PE is applied over the armour wires. Compliant with BT
Specification CW1198). The product is also available with a PVC outer
sheath in lieu of polyethylene and with filling compound suitable for
tropical climates with a drop point greater than 80ºC.
Available as twisted pairs in 10 Pair Units with range from 2 to 100.
Plain annealed solid copper wire, cellular polyethylene insulation,
twisted pairs, petroleum jelly filling, paper core wrap, moisture
barrier bonded to black low-density polyethylene sheath. The
armour is used as additional protection of telecommunication

cables for direct burial. The jelly filled or air core cable is armoured
with a suitable number of galvanised mild steel wires applied
directly over the polyethylene sheath of the cable. The wires shall
comply with BS EN 10257 Part 1 except that the tensile strength
shall be not less than 340 MN/m2 and not greater than 540 MN/
m2. The value of resistivity for the armour is not mandatory.
The cable is then sheathed overall with PE or polyethylene.
