N2XFGbY Cable 0.6/1kV

N2XFGbY Cable 0.6/1kV Click here to view the cable arrow-no-circles.png

Applications Overview

The armoured N2XFGbY cable is for low voltage power distribution and offers a thermoset insulated alternative to the thermoplastic insulated NYFGbY cable, and thus offering an increased maximum operating temperature of 90oC. This DIN VDE 0276-603 compliant 0.6/1kV cable is robust and hardy, with the flat SWA and steel tape armour providing protection from both mechanical stress, accidental damage, and rodent attack. As such the N2XFGbY cable is generally installed externally, including in direct burial applications. Like the thermoplastic alternative, the N2XFGbY cable is UV resistant and flame retardant.

This cable is commonly specified in Continental Europe for connections in power and substations and in industrial environments.

Specifying N2XFGbY Cables 

The choice of armoured cable - whether XLPE or PVC insulated, PVC, MDPE or LSZH sheathed, copper or aluminium conductors - can be a challenge. The N2XFGbY with its double layer of armour may suit your installation environment, but in the event you require clarification or further assistance in determining if this is indeed the right cable for your project you can contact our technical team who will be happy to advise.

The N2XFGbY is available on short manufacturing lead times and with low minimum order quantities.
