Marking system for electrical cabling

The CAB 3 cable marking system from Legrand provides for quick and accurate marking of electrical wiring.Legrand’s CAB3 cable and wire marking system provides accurate identification of electrical wiring and saves assembly time in any electrification programme.

“The CAB 3 polyamide 6/6 nylon colour-coded system is suitable for marking cross-sections of between 0.5 mm² and 35 mm²,” says Legrand national sales manager, Timothy Mountjoy.

“The system consists of coloured markers, on which numbers have been hot stamped for permanent identification, label holders and a re-usable applicator that facilitates fast distribution of the markers,” he says. “The patented side-clipping design ensures that the markers can be lined up easily and accurately and that they hold their positions securely.”

The CAB 3 system can be applied at any time, even after wiring. It is ideal for extensions or modifications to cable marking systems and is used throughout the world as an accessory to Viking high density terminal blocks.

These versatile terminal blocks, which are simple to install, ensure space and time savings. They provide efficient organisation, precise identification and interconnection, safety and simple servicing.

The CAB 3 cable marking system meets strict quality and safety specifications and is available nationally from Legrand’s network of distributors.

In October 2004, South African Jama Nyeni, a construction worker with 10 years’ site experience, chose to wear his own “trusted V-Gard Cap” instead of a company-issued hard hat. This decision may have saved his life. Nyeni was working beside a maintenance crew who were relining a furnace at a construction site on the Kwa-Zulu Natal north coast. The crew was aligning sections of the furnace bottom, which required the use of a three-ton chain block. The apparatus, however, had been set up incorrectly and was pulling at an angle, overloading the chain which consequently snapped. The resulting whip-lashing action propelled the chain into the front of Nyeni’s V-Gard Cap, with a force that split it open from peak to rear suspension slot. The force knocked Nyeni to the ground. Although stunned, he remained conscious and sustained only slight bruising to his forehead.
