This cable is designed for use in the installation of electric vehicle charge points. The cable
incorporates power conductors and an enhanced Cat 5 screened data cable, encapsulated in a double-sheathed design for extra protection. Whilst designed for electric vehicle charge points, the cable is also suitable for other installations where power and data are required.
These cables are designed to be installed in air, clipped to the surface, on cable tray/ladder work and embedded in concrete. The cables can be laid direct in the ground providing that suitable mechanical protection is in place.
Running data and power in a single cable is a concern for many electricians, with most
believing that segregation of power (Band II) and data (Band I) is always required.
It is however already common to find power and data inside one cable in many
existing applications, an example is DALI networks which incorporate data within
a 5 core power cable.
It is recommended that the screening of the data cable is terminated to earth.
What do the regulations say?
Voltage Band I is defined as levels of voltage which are too low to provide serious
electric shocks; effectively this limits the band to extra-low voltage (ELV), including
telecommunications, signalling, bell, control and alarm circuits.
Voltage Band II is defined as all voltages which are used in electrical installations
not included in Band I. This means that all 230V supplies are included in Band II.
Proximity of electrical services (extract from 528.1) - Except where one of the following
methods is adopted, neither a Band I nor a Band II circuit shall be contained in the same
wiring system as a circuit of nominal voltage exceeding that of low voltage, and a Band
I circuit shall not be contained in the same wiring system as a Band II circuit. (i) - Every
cable or conductor is insulated for the highest voltage present.
EV-Ultra® consists of power conductors and data cables that are rated to the same nominal
voltage – therefore segregation of power and data is not required.
Proximity of communications cables (extract from 528.2) - Special considerations
of electrical interference, both electromagnetic and electrostatic, may apply to
telecommunication circuits, data transfer circuits and the like.
EV-Ultra® has been designed with these considerations in mind, it incorporates screened,
twisted pair data cables and is also constructed with a lay length that reduces interference.
Laboratory and on-site installation tests have also been conducted and no interference or
degradation of signal was recorded.
