Low-voltage underground cables and accessories

Power LV Underground

  • For plant applications and subscriber distribution.
  • Accessories include LV cabinets and straight and branch joints.

The Danish power company Syd Energi installed 450 km of Nexans Axclight-O cables to modernize and expand their MV network. Extremely reliable, this directly-buriable cable contains up to 72 micro optical cables for communications.

Distribution cables
Outdoor Energy cables/LV underground power cables

Medium and low-voltage cables (1kV to 60 kV) are used in the basic distribution network that brings power from high-voltage substations to cities and remote areas.

To provide this needed power for change, Nexans has been leading the way in new materials and designs for distribution cables and networks. We also master installation techniques in some of the toughest environments imaginable, including submarine, aerial and dense urban conditions.

Accessories, too, are key elements in any powergrid. That is why we custom design joints, terminations and connections to user's specifications. We offer a full range of standard products, and have the logistics to deliver turnkey projects worldwide.

Fire resistant cables 1kV
Indoor energy cables/Wires and cables 1kV

Fire Resistant cables enable the security systems (video surveillance, smoke ventilation, audio alarms...) to continue functioning for a certain time after the fire has started.

Alsecure Plus is Nexans’ full range of Fire resistant cable in accordance with the national standards.

Benefits of fire resistant cables

  • Secure critical applications in high-risk environments
  • Meet extreme fire conditions over an extended period
  • A full range to meet and exceed the most stringent national requirements and the different fire security applications
Low fire hazard cables 1kV
Indoor energy cables/Wires and cables 1kV

Cables are not dangerous on their own, but they may sometimes cause fires resulting from bad or ageing installations, wrong calculations of sections, and poor-quality cables installed, etc

Due to the use of organic materials for insulation and sheathing and their huge volume in buildings, during fires, cables can also severely contribute to:

  • Increased smoke production which limits visibility and inhibits escape
  • Increased carbon monoxide production, the most lethal gas in fires
  • Release of irritant gases

In order to save people and goods from these risks, Nexans offers halogen-free cables which prevent fire propagation and dramatically reduce the emission of smoke and hazardous, acidic, and irritant gases, thus allowing people time to exit safely.

Bolted connectors
Systems, Accessories & Equipment/Power accessories/Ferrules and lugs

Mechanical connectors are a reliable and money saving way of connecting different conductor cross sections and conductor materials for 1 kV up to 42 kV.

All connectors are available with either hexagon socket screws or shear-offhead bolts.

Connector Body:

  • high-strength aluminium alloy
  • rolled thread


  • electro tin-plated
  • lubricated with special grease

Advantages of shear-off-head bolts:

  • easy to assemble
  • the head will always shear-off at the required torque moment
  • no torque wrench required
  • easy release by hexagon socket


  • low stock required because two connector types cover the most common cross sections
  • no crimping tools required


  • tested acc. to VDE 0220, IEC 61238
