N2XSH / N2XS(F)H / N2XS(FL)H Cables

Our Medium Voltage cable portfolio includes the N2SXH Low Smoke Zero Halogen Cable in 10kV 15kV 20kV and 30kV, 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 the N2XSY PVC and N2XS2Y PE cables gives N2XSH, N2XS(F)H and N2XS(FL)H cables the flexibility to be installed both 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. 

N2XSH cable specification

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. They are available as either single core or three core variants (where the multicore is referred to as N2XSEH and where the individual cores are screened). 

Installation of these unarmoured cables is usually in cable ducts - as three single cores or in triplex formation (3x1) - use of the three-core variant is much less common but is available.

N2XSFH cable & N2XSFLH cable

Installation design and environmental site specifics will determine the cable specification. Where appropriate, additional waterblocking may be required to offer protection against water ingress. Longitudinal waterblocking (the N2XS(F)H cable) and dual longitudinal and radial waterblocking (the N2XS(FL)H cable) can provide such measures. As before, these cables are usually installed as 3x single cores / triplex, but where the 3-core cable is used it is referred to as N2XSE(F)H and N2XSE(FL)H respectively - with each of the conductors being individually screened.

The reason for cable duct installation is to provide them with additional mechanical protection, where the N2XS(F)H and N2XS(FL)H versions are particularly important in the event that those ducts may become waterlogged. The single and dual waterblocked layers are commonly a water-swellable tape and an additional water-swellable powder, unless destined for clean environments where powder-free cable construction is stipulated and 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. 

N2XSH cable voltage rating

Cable datasheets are provided as standard for N2XSH cables. N2XSH cables are designed with the European market in mind, where fixed installation and direct burial cables can be unarmoured (unlike the BS6622 and BS7835) and they are often for the connection of critical infrastructure and equipment. Where other voltages are required, please speak to the team and they will be happy to provide the datasheets and information needed.


The N2XSH, N2XS(F)H and N2XS(FL)H is available in 3-core variants at voltage ratings including 6/10kV, 8.7/15kV, 12/20kV and 18/30kV, upon request.
