As a leading supplier of international Medium Voltage (MV) cable, NA2XSY represents an important constituent of Eland Cables' MV cable portfolio. The NA2XSY has a single core aluminium stranded class 2 conductor with cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation and a red polyvinyl chloride (PVC) oversheath.
NA2XSY is widely used in distribution networks both indoor and outdoor, either buried or in cable ducting as it is not UV-resistant. Manufactured in accordance with VDE 0276-620, this cable is flame retardant to VDE 0482-332-1-2 and IEC 60332-1. Due to a low dielectric loss factor and the strong XLPE insulation, this cable offers long-term operational reliability. Nevertheless, it should be used in fixed installations to avoid mechanical or tensile strain.
This cable is relatively easy to install, even in tight guideways. It is also suitable to install in temperatures as low as -5oC.
NA2SXY voltage rating
The available current ratings for this range of medium voltage cable are as follows:
NA2SXY cable construction
With the exception of its aluminium conductor, this cable shares the same properties as N2XSY which has a copper conductor. It is also manufactured in accordance with VDE 0276-620, HD 620 and DIN EN 60228.
Whilst a lower metal current carrying capacity causes this aluminium cable to require a larger cross-section than its copper equivalent in order to carry the same current, prevailing metal prices can make the aluminium version more cost effective on certain projects where space is not a constraint.
