XHHW-2 Wires and Cables

600 V / 90 °C

General description

Soft copper wire or cable with cross-linked polyethylene insulation (XLPE).


  • Viakons XHHW-2 wires and cables meet the following specifications:
  • NOM-063-SCFI Electric products- conductors - safety requirements.
  • NMX-J-451-ANCE Low Voltage Power Cables with cross-linked polyethylene or ethylene propylene based insulation, for up to 600 V installations.
  • UL 44 Thermoset Insulated Wires and Cables.
  • Note: For UL approved products , contact our Engineering Department.

Main applications

  • XHHW-2 wires and cables are general- use products suitable for low voltage distribution and lighting systems in public buildings and industrial installations, or recreational and commercial centers.
  • Suitable for use in energy or control circuits due to their small diameter.


  • Maximum operation tension: 600 V
  • Maximum operation temperature in the conductor
  • 90°C in a dry, moist and wet locations.
  • 130°C in an emergency.
  • 250°C in a short circuit.


  • Suitable for installation in wet, moist or dry locations.
  • Offer excellent electrical, chemical and mechanical characteristics.
  • Small diameter allows a larger number of cables in the same conduit tube.
  • Thermosetting insulation offers a higher thermal stability.
  • Sunlight-resistant.

Complementary info

  • Note: The emergency condition is limited to 1500 h accumulated during the life of the cable and no more than 100 h in twelve consecutive months. The short circuit condition is based on the specifications of the ICEA P-32-382 standard.
  • Manufactured in sizes from 2,082 to 506,7 mm2 (14 AWG to 1 000 kcmil).
  • Black insulation makes it sunlight-resistant.
  • For insulation in a different color, contact our Sales Department.
