Nexans CANADEX 2.0 Residential Cables Officially Launched

CANADEX® 2.0

January 16, 2023

The Nexans CANADEX 2.0 line of NMD9 cables from Nexans has officially launched, an upgrade to the existing line of CANADEX cables. The line is designed to accelerate the installation process, allowing electricians to perform more work in less time, cut overall project costs, and reduce their carbon footprints.

Nexans CANADEX 2.0 cables are designed with the electricians’ needs in mind with three key features intended to streamline the installation process. The “INSTAGLIDE®” technology allows for fast and efficient installation and the ‘Easy-Lift’ handle on Spools is more ergonomic, which improves safety on job sites. Nexans has also added metre markings to the cable to account for every metre of cable installed, reducing product waste.

Jerome Leroy, Nexans’ VP of Distribution and Usage Canada, said: “In developing CANADEX 2.0 cable, our team held focus groups with electricians to understand and gather qualitative insights and unmet needs to create a new line of cable with electricians in mind, democratizing the cable manufacturing process. This new line of residential cables is a revolutionary step in the electrification of Canadian households, using partially recycled copper from our copper rod mill facility in Montreal. Our cables are made by and for Canadians, and we are excited to embark on this new journey.”
