NYCY screened 1kV power cable, single/m’core

NYCY screened 1kV power, single or multicore cables are designed for fixed power and control use in industrial applications. The concentric wire screen provides protection against electronic interference, but can also be used for neutral, protective or earth connection or as mechanical protection.

These NYCY cables are suitable for installation indoors, outdoors, in ducts, in water or underground. Commonly used in electric power plants, transformer stations, industrial plants, metropolitan networks and street lighting.
