Secondary Dist. Cable (DRS) 600 V / 75 °C

600 V / 75 °C

General description

Cable manufactured with two or three copper or aluminum conductors, black cross-linked polyethylene insulation (XLPE), twisted together with a white cross-linked polyethylene insulated (XLPE) neutral conductor.


  • Viakons secondary distribution cables meet the following specifications:
  • NOM-063-SCFI Electric products- conductors - safety requirements.
  • NMX-J-061-ANCE Multiple-conductor cables for a low voltage overhead or underground distribution.
  • CFE E0000-02 Cables for installations up to 600 V with cross-linked insulation.
  • Note: Can also be manufactured under the ICEA standard.

Main applications

  • Used in underground low voltage electrical energy distribution systems.
  • Suitable for installations in direct ducts or direct burial.
  • In permanent or temporary electrical lighting installations in general.


  • Maximum operation voltage: 600 V.
  • Maximum operation temperature in the conductor: 90°C
  • Copper conductors are manufactured with soft or annealed copper and aluminum conductors with 1350-H19 alloy hard drawn aluminum.
  • Manufactured in sizes from 21,15 to 177,3 mm2 (4 AWG to 350 kcmil).
  • The insulation of the phase conductors is black, which makes it weather resistant.


  • Suitable for direct burial installations.
  • Thermosetting insulation provides a greater thermal stability.
