Power Cables of Different Voltage Classes
We consider to according to different voltage levels, cables can be divided into low-voltage cables, medium-voltage cables, high-voltage cables, and ultra-high-voltage cables. Low-voltage cables are used to transmit power on output distribution lines that are fixedly laid at 50Hz AC and rated voltage is 3Kv and below. Medium voltage cables generally refer to power transmission lines with voltage levels above 3kv and below 35kv. The voltage level of High-voltage cables is 35kv to 220kv. Suitable for substation or overhead power transmission cables.
Classification of Voltage Levels
Voltage level refers to the series of rated voltage levels of power systems and power equipment. There are several different criteria for dividing voltage levels. Low voltage refers to the voltage level of 1000V and below in the AC system used for power distribution, that is, 1000V is the standard in AC power, and high voltage usually refers to the voltage level that exceeds the low voltage.
ZMS cable voltage level division is mainly the following:
- Safety voltage (usually 36V or less)
- Low voltage (also divided into 220V and 380V, residential single-phase power users generally use 220V)
- Medium and high voltage (6kV, 10kV, 35kV, 220kV)
- Ultra-high voltage (330kV, 500kV, 750kV)
- Extra-high voltage 1000KV (AC), ± 800KV (DC) and above
Description of ZMS Power Cable Products
ZMS electric wire company is a well-known manufacturer of Cables of different voltage levels. No matter what voltage level or type of cable you need, we can provide a customized cable solution based on your application needs.
Now, today, there is always some ambiguity in the range of voltage levels for Voltage Cables. It depends on the country, as well as the standards-appointed bodies.
Low Voltage Cable 0.6/1KV or Below
Aerial bundled cable is an overhead line with aluminum core, aluminum alloy core, or copper core as conductor and PVC / XLPE / HEPE as insulation. Applicable to an overhead power line with a voltage level of 0.6 / 1KV and below. Its simple structure, convenient installation, and maintenance, low-cost and large transmission capacity are widely used in power transmission and distribution lines of various voltage levels. At the same time, it also has a certain anti-corrosion ability, and it is also used in coastal areas or places with special geographical features.
Conductor: Aluminum, Aluminum Alloy, Copper
Insulated: XLPE, PVC, HEPE
Core: three core, four core
IEC 61089, BS 7870, DIN 48201, ASTM B399, BS EN50183, NFC33-209.
XLPE insulated armored power cable has higher electrical strength, mechanical strength, resistance to aging, environmental stress, and chemical resistance. It has a simple structure and high operating performance, and can be placed for a long time without being restricted by drops. It is suitable for power transmission, construction, factory, communication, and other fields. Furthermore, it can completely replace oil-impregnated paper insulated power cables and partially replace PVC insulated power cables.
Conductor: Copper, Aluminum
Insulated: PVC, XLPE
Core: one, two, three, four, five(core)

Armored: SWA (Steel Wire Armored),
Core: Single core, Three core
Sheath: HDPE, PVC
IEC 60840, HRN HD 632
All voltage cables have different structural elements, they have different combinations of one or more conductors, insulation materials, sheaths, and armors. High-voltage cables and low-voltage cables differ in that they have an additional inner layer in the insulation jacket to control the electric field around the conductor. And the shielding layer of the conductor can surround each insulated conductor, which can balance the stress on the cable insulation layer, prevent it from interfering with external equipment, and prevent external electric or magnetic fields from entering the cable.
