Details

Ground Shielded VFD Multi Conductor Cable

VFD abbreviation refers to Variable Frequency Drive. This cable is made of three conductors and draining wires. It is meant to distribute 600 volts. VFD Multi Conductor Cable is insulated with the cross linked polyethylene (XLPE). It is shielded with aluminum tape and jacketed in a color coded Polyvinyl chloride.

Conductor

The cable measures 16 AWG and 40 feet long. It is made of three stranded and tinned copper conductors. Stranding optimizes the flexibility of the conductors. Tinning on the other hand, involves coating the conductors with a thin layer of metal through electrolysis. It makes the conductors corrosive and friction resistant. Grounding conductors are also made of copper, tinned and green color coded for identity.

Approvals and Certifications

• Underwriters Laboratory (UL) listed as type TC-ER 600V
• IEEE 1202, flame test 4
• Permitted for exposed run (ER) as per NEC
• Meet impact and crush specifications
• Permitted for class 1, division 2 and zone 2 for dangerous locations as per NEC

Insulation

VFD Multi-Conductor Cable is insulated with a cross linked polyethylene polymer. This is a thermoplastic compound which protects the user from shocks. XLPE ensures the conductors are separated from each other to prevent contacts that would cause short circuits. The cross linked polyethylene protects the conductors form industrial chlorides, strong sunlight radiations and moisture.

Shielding

The VFD Cable is shielded with braided tinned copper wires and the aluminum tape. They are helically applied round the cable to provide maximum protection. Shielding holds the conductors in positions to eliminate overlapping. It prevents the conductors from direct mechanical attacks.

Jacket

Jacketing is the outer layer of Type VFD Cable. It is black color coded for easy identification. Polyvinyl Chloride jacketing is tough enough to protect the cable form abrasions and creeping. PVC is flame retardant thus optimizing the service life of this cable.

Applications

• AC motor drive
• Radar units
• Tracking systems
• Intelligent information system
• Command and control system
• Automated weapon control
