FL2XCY and FLYCY Airfield Cables

The FLYCY cable with it's PVC insulation, and the FL2XCY and FL2XCYRY cables with their XLPE insulation, are used as Medium Voltage power to primary and secondary series circuits in airfield lighting, available in voltages from 2Kv to 10kV. They are provided with a concentric copper wire and copper tape shield. In all three cases, the cables have a robust flame retardant, oil resistant and UV resistant PVC outer sheathing. Given their installation environment it is a key characteristic that these cables are impact and weather resistant.

Airfield primary and secondary series circuits can provide power and lighting to runways, taxiways, airport aprons by connecting the Constant Current Regulators and the isolating transformers, and between the isolating transformers themselves. Where additional mechanical protection is required, the FL2XCYRY is recommended with its galvanised steel wire armour.

These single core cables are offered as standard with comparatively small sized copper conductors from 6mm2 to 16mm2- whether solid or stranded in construction. For larger sizes or alternate voltages please contact us for specific weights and dimensions. Additional technical support is available by telephone or email where required for specification and to approach installation challenges. Please also see our range of FAA L-824 approved cables and the Spanish standard RHV and RHZ1 MV cables.
