Title (EN) ELECTRICAL CABLE WITH LIGHT REFLECTIVE MEANS AND METHOD OF MAKING
(FR) CABLE ELECTRIQUE AVEC MOYEN DE REFLEXION DE LA LUMIERE ET SON PROCEDE DE FABRICATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Transmission cables for supplying electric power to mobile mining machines are used extensively. A problem exists of the cable being run over by other machines because the cable is difficult to see in the dark environment of the mine. In order to render the cable (10a, 10b) more readily visible, at least one continuous ribbon (16, 18, 36) including a multiplicity of light reflective elements is embedded in outer jacket (12a, 12b) of the cable (10a, 10b) along the entire length of the cable. The ribbon (16, 18, 36) may be a light reflective tape sold by the 3M Company under the trademark 'SCOTCH-LITE' Brand Reflective sheeting No, 8190 Silver. The tape is placed in contact with the outer jacket (12a, 12b) before the outer jacket is cured, and embedded in the outer jacket by a procedure including encasing the entire cable and tape in molten lead, curing, and then removing the lead.
(FR)Des cables de transmission pour l'alimentation en energie electrique de machines mobiles d'exploitation miniere sont utilises de maniere extensive. Le risque que d'autres machines roulent sur le cable pose un probleme car celui-ci est difficile a voir dans l'obscurite regnant dans la mine. De maniere a rendre le cable (10a, 10b) plus visible, au moins un ruban continu (16, 18, 36) comprenant une multitude d'elements de reflexion de la lumiere son noyes dans la gaine externe (12a, 12b) du cable (10a, 10b) sur toute la longueur du cable. Le ruban (16, 18, 36) peut etre une bande de reflexion de la lumiere commercialisee par la compagnie 3M sous la marque 'SCOTCH-LITE', ('Brand Reflective Sheeting No. 8190 Silver'). La bande est placee au contact de la gaine exterieure (12a, 12b) avant durcissement de la gaine exterieure et elle est noyee dans cette gaine exterieure par un procede qui consiste a envelopper tout le cable et la bande dans du plomb en fusion, a laisser durcir, puis a enlever le plomb. 00
