XLPE/EPR 5 kV Medium Tension

90 °C

General description

Single-conductor cable manufactured with one soft copper or hard 1350 alloy aluminum conductor, with semi-conducting shield over the conductor and cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) or Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) insulation and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) jacket.


  • Viakons non-shielded and jacketed medium voltage cables meet the following specification:
  • ICEA S-96-659 Standard for non-shielded cables rated 2001-5000 V for use in distribution of electric energy.

Main applications

  • Used for supplying and distributing electrical energy for buildings with substations located on several levels.
  • For use in series lighting circuits for airport runways and control systems
  • Facilities requiring lightweight and abrasion resistant cables such as bridges, ships, overhead networks and vertical installations.


  • Maximum operation voltage: 5 000 V.
  • Maximum operation temperature: 90°C.
  • Soft copper or hard 1350 alloy aluminum conductors in compressed concentric strands and in sizes from 8,367 to 506,7 mm2 (8 AWG to 1000 kcmil).
  • The insulation can be cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) or ethylene propylene rubber (EPR)
  • The polyvinyl chloride (PVC) jacket has the no-flame propagation characteristic.
  • Black jacket.


  • Jacket provides additional protection against maltreatment during its installation and operation.
  • Can be installed with a smaller bending radius than the shielded cables.
  • Their anti-flame jacket makes them resistant to weather, sunlight, and chemical agents.
  • Suitable for direct burial.
  • Excellent electrical and mechanical characteristics.
