XAV

Application and Description

XAV cables are suitable for direct burial without extra mechanical protection, fixed to the walls, laid on cable trays or raceways. May also be suitable for use in premises which poses a risk of explosion (rank BE3 NF C 15-100) with mechanical protection is necessary and in this case the intensity must be reduced by 15%.
