RHH / RHW-2 XLPE Cable

600 / 90 °C

General description

Soft drawn copper conductor cable with cross-linked polyethylene insulation (XLPE).


  • Viakons RHH/RHW-2, XLPE 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 insulation or based on propylene ethylene, for installations up to 600 V.
  • UL 44 Thermoset Insulated Wires and Cables.
  • Note: For UL approved products, contact our Engineering Department.


Main applications

  • RHH/RHW-2 cables are general-use products. Due to their thickness they can be installed by direct burial.
  • In low voltage lighting systems, and on trays or conduits, lighting in public buildings and industrial installations and recreational and commercial centers.


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


  • Are suitable for installation in wet, damp or dry locations.
  • Provide excellent electrical, physical and mechanical properties.
  • Due to their higher insulation thickness, they are suitable for direct burial installation.
  • Thermosetting insulation offers a higher thermal stability.
  • Sunlight-resistant.

Complementary info

  • Note: The emergency condition is limited to 1500 h accumulated during the cables life 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, which makes it sunlight-resistant.
  • For cables with different color insulation, contact our Sales Department.
