Control, instrumentation, and coaxial cables

for Nuclear pumps

nuclear plant

  • These critical cables control power plant pumps, motors, relays, valves, and provide video surveillance.

Nexans supplied all types of power, control and instrumentation cables for the Ling Ao reactors (China – prime contractor: Framatome); the Lungmen reactors (Taiwan – prime contractor: General Electric); the Cernavoda and Qinshan reactors (Romania and China – prime contractor: AECLA); and the Tianwan reactors (China – prime contractor: ASE) for instance.

Control cables
Special Cables

The progressive electrification of machinery, and the industry for electrical equipment and tools, creates an increasing demand
for mobile cables...

These cables are used in fixed installations or in installations or in environments were a high degree of flexibility is required.

Especially if control panels or other equipment is moved, these cables are most suitable.

The product range comprises cables which are suitable to interconnect most different applications from control and computer panels
down to lifts, material flow and automation equipment.

Control cables are exposed to a variety of mechanical and environmental stresses. Especially such as tension and pressure to cores
and change of length while bending.

These requirements are met by selecting most appropriate construction principles and state of the art conductor, insulation
and sheathing materials.

The degree of flexibility and...

Winding wires for submersible motors
Special Cables/Pump cables

Driving units of submersible pumps, so called "wet type motors", have been used to a large extent for many years.
Due to their simple construction, these motors can be manufactured in comparably small series. This enables end-user countries to set up their own production. This is not possible for canned, oil-filled, motors.


Unlike an oil filled motor, whose insulation would fail due to contact with moisture entering from without, the water filled unit will continue to operate.
There is also no danger of polluting water with oil.
The advantages of „wet type motors“ in comparison to canned motors are known all over the world and production of such motors is increasing steadily.
The application of this technology though, does not rest solely in the traditional field of submersible pumps.
Nowadays, „wet type motors“ are used more and ...

WINDLINK® Low Voltage cables up to 1,8/3kV
Special Cables/Wind turbines dedicated cables

Cables in the Wind Industry, especially for wind turbines and for loop installation on the top of the tower are facing severe torsion constraints due to the rotation of the nacelle.
Due to the minimum 20 years life time of wind turbines, Nexans brings an appropriate answer to all O.E.M requirements and specifications.
Torsion tests simulate a 20-year life time in a turbine. To meet this requirement, cables have to comply with a complete test which depends on customers’ specification.
Nexans has developed low voltage loop cables (up to 1kV) that reliably transmit energy produced in the generator to the transformer, usually located at the base of the tower. They come in Low-Smoke Zero-Halogen (LSZH) versions, and are also oil, abrasion, UV and ozone-resistant.
