Power cables 1-30kV
High-voltage cables for permanent routing are used in various areas mainly to transmit electric energy.
Low voltage cables as well as medium voltage cables and overhead lines are all classified as power cables. In local grids, cables with low voltage are used in the last substation, where the current changes from medium voltage to low voltage (0.6/1 kV) before reaching the end user.
Power cables with medium voltage
Medium-voltage cables in a voltage range of 6 to 30kV are used on a regional supply level to transmit energy across medium distances within a larger local grid or along industrial power cables as well as in power stations and switchboards. Medium voltage cables are the second most commonly installed cables after low-voltage cables.
Power cables for overhead lines
Overhead power lines are used in different regions in Germany to distribute energy, in particular in urban residential zones outside of conurbations. Faber is your cable specialist for insulated overhead power cables of up to 1.2kV, using an aluminium conductor (N)FA2X to connect houses via a roof-mounted transmission mast. Overhead lines ensure a robust grid and a secure cross-country supply of electricity.
Copper wire and earth wire made from copper are used in electrical system construction for earthing purposes.

Things to know about power cables 1 - 30 kV
Wide choice of power cable types
Faber offers you a comprehensive range of power cord types at different voltage levels. Choose the ideal cable for your energy distribution projects—from our low-voltage cords, medium-voltage cables and overhead lines.
Due to their fields of applications, power cables are also colloquially called earth cables or external power cables. We offer you a wide variety of power cables with different cross-sections and cutting lengths, which can also be uses as power extension cords.
Outdoor power cables for any purpose-from low voltage to medium voltage
Low-voltage cables are used to transmit energy from substations or transformer stations all the way to the end users. That is why energy providers or public utilities are a field of application for low-voltage wiring. Transformer stations convert the current from medium voltage to low voltage, i.e., from 0.6 to 1kV. Medium-voltage cables, on the other hand, are suited for higher outputs with a voltage range of 6 to 30kV. They are used to bridge medium distances such as in larger local grids or with industrial power cables.
Safe electrical power cables for overhead lines
In contrast to low-voltage cables, which mostly run underground as earth cables, some regions also use aerial cables for the public distribution grid. Aerial lines with a shielded power cable are used for the home connection where the maximum grid voltage must stay below 1.2kV.
Faber’s power cables give you best-in-class constantly tested quality—in a comprehensive portfolio with maximum product availability. With Faber you can count on one of the largest cable manufacturers and distributors—and an expertise to win you over.
