What is SHD-GC? What does SHD-GC Mean?

Keeping it simple, SH, SHD, and SHD-GC are designations for Shielded mining cable or shielded mining power cable and is both an insulated Wire & Cable industry term as well as a mining industry term for their spec of Shielded Mining Cable. Here are the three breakdowns for SH, SHD, and SHD-GC Shielded Mining Cables.

  • SH: Shielded Mining Cable Single Conductor: flexible monopolar cable mines with
    screen and outer jacket, for heavy use.
  • SHD: Shielded Mining Cable with Ground Conductors: three-phase flexible cable for
    mines with screen and grounding conductors.
  • SHD-GC: SHD-Ground Check: SHD with an insulated conductor for the circuit of
    grounding connection continuity testing, and two ground conductors.


How is SHD-GC Shielded Mine Power Cable used in the Mining Industry?

So your’re asking yourself how is SHD-GC used in the mining industry? First, it’s important to note that the mining industry is characterized by its unique production processes and the super dangerous environments in which the job is done.  SHD-GC has to be used in order to power their equipment that helps them exploit the different minerals the world needs to keep running every day.
