Reduce the risk

Prysmian’s Afumex LSX is the original screened wiring cable used to improve installation times and the electrical safety in many building services circuits.

LSX was developed in the 1980s at the home of FP200 near Southampton. The all new product aimed to include features that would provide a range of cross functional benefits, for example, internal aluminium sheath now in high demand.


The aluminium sheath enables LSX to be used as a data or signal cable because it acts as a 360° electrostatic screen protecting the signal. Conversely, when used as an energy or small LV power cable the same screen protects adjacent data circuits from corruption. This makes LSX ideal for structured wiring in new buildings and retro fitting into existing cable routes without the need for additional protection, saving time and money in the process.


This same metallic sheath also provides a robust mechanical protection because our technique of orientation and bonding between the metal and the oversheath makes a strong but light composite. This enables LSX to be used in place of small surface mounted armoured cables when used indoors and allows considerable savings in terms of containment, support, clips, glands and terminations. LSX needs no metallic glands to provide sealing or earth-continuity, nylon glands are sufficient, so the savings mount up.


The aluminium sheath provides a significant safety benefit too, safe when spiked. We make the aluminium internal sheath the right thickness and overlap to carry a fault current matching the relevant conductor size of the cable and sufficient to trip a Type B circuit breaker.
 

So, data safety, mechanical safety and electrical safety - that makes Afumex LSX the right choice.
