N2XSH / N2XS(F)H / N2XS(FL)H 12/20kV Cables

Our Medium Voltage cable portfolio includes the N2SXH Low Smoke Zero Halogen 20kV cable, a UV-resistant cable available with optional single and dual waterblocking layers, holding CPR classification. This combination of LSZH insulation and sheathing with constructional layers that are more typically found on PVC and PE cables gives the N2XSH, N2XS(F)H and N2XS(FL)H cables the flexibility to be installed internally or externally. In practice, this means they can be run from outside to inside in a CPR compliant installation without the need to joint or change cables at the point of entry. 

Available as single core and three core variants, the multicore is also referred to as N2XSEH (and N2XSE(F)H / N2XSE(FL)H accordingly) where the individual cores are screened. The N2XSH and associated waterblocked variants are designed with the European market in mind, where fixed installation, direct burial, cables can be unarmoured (unlike the BS6622 and BS7835). They are more likely to be installed in cable ducts to provide them with additional mechanical protection, where the (F) and (FL) versions are particularly important in the event that the ducts are likely to become waterlogged. The single and dual waterblock layers are commonly a water-swellable tape and an additional water-swellable powder, unless for clean environments stipulating powder-free cable construction when two tapes are used. These additional layers prevent any ingress of water from reaching the insulation layer and potentially impeding the performance of the underlying conductor - an issue known as water-treeing.

These power distribution cables are used for private grid networks across a wide range of industries including data centres and life sciences new build sites. The Eland Cables technical team can support the specification of this multi-purpose cable, advising on the suitability of the N2XSH or a the PVC and PE 12/20kV alternatives as determined by your precise installation environment. Additionally, the N2XSH, N2XS(F)H and N2XS(FL)H is available in other voltage ratings, including 6/10kV and 18/30kV, upon request.
