Applications Overview

The N2XCY cable is a low voltage power cable with a concentric conductor of copper wires and tape for protective earth / neutral connections. It is widely used in European power distribution applications, including transformer stations and industrial plants, holding a rated voltage of 0.6/1kV and manufactured in accordance with IEC 60502-1 and DIN VDE 0276-603.  The N2XCY cable is PVC sheathed, providing a flame retardant covering and XLPE insulated for a maximum conductor operating temperature of 90oC. 

The N2XCY multicore power cable is designed for internal and external installation environments. Designed for internal and external use, it can be installed underground with additional protection.

Selecting N2XCY cables

Specifying an N2XCY cable as opposed to an LSZH equivalent N2XCH cable or a cable without the concentric conductor such as the N2XY can come down to a number of factors specific to your installation. Where you require advice or assistance, the technical experts of The Cable Lab can help you work through your precise requirements, advising on both the choice of cable and the key calculations such as current carrying capacity and de-ratings factors as applicable. Our N2XCY cables are available from stock or on short production lead times, delivered both within the UK and internationally. For more information on this cable and on how it can be used for your current project, please get in touch.
