NSHXAFÖ Cable Click here to view the cable arrow-no-circles.png

Applications Overview

Our NSHXAFÖ is a highly-flexible rubber cable recommended for use in public transport technologies, on-board trains, in underground rolling stock coaches, and on trams and buses. It offers protection against short circuits as it is inherently ground fault-proof when used in railway vehicles. It is also suitable for general wiring purposes. NSHXAFÖ is suitable for installation in conduits, cable ducts, pipes and enclosed channels.
This cable has a flame-retardant, oil-resistant Type HM3 Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) rubber sheath which prevents the emission of toxic gases and opaque fumes in the event of fire. This makes it suitable for use in public areas where smoke and toxic fumes would pose a risk to human life should fire occur.

NSHXAFÖ Cable construction

Conductor Flexible tinned copper
Insulation Rubber Type 3GI3, Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) base
Outersheath Rubber Type HM3, non-toxic

NSHXAFÖ has an operating temperature rating of -35oC to +90oC when fixed and -15oC to +90oC when flexed. It is available with a voltage rating of 1.8/3kV or 3.6/6kV.
