TORONTO — Nexans announced the launch of the CANADEX 2.0 line of NMD90 cables, 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.

CANADEX 2.0 cables are designed with the electricians’ needs in mind with three 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.

“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,” said Jerome Leroy, Nexans’ VP of Distribution and Usage Canada. “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.”
