Tray Control Cable EPR/CPE Triads
Tray Control Triads Cable is for power distributions in both wet and dry environmental conditions. It has an operational temperature range of -300C to 900C to serve 300 volts. The conductors are individually insulated and then shielded for additional protection from mechanical attacks.
This cable measures 20 AWG through 18 AWG and the minimum length sold is ten feet. Tray Control EPR/CPE Triads cable is designed with Class B bare and stranded copper conductors as per the ASTM B3 and B8. The conductors are in triads for maximum performance. Copper is one of the best electrical conductors in the world; this is due to its goodelectrical conductivity. These properties include the good conductivity and low resistance. Stranding improves the flexibility aspect of this cable. Flexible Tray Control Cable is easy to install as compared to stiff and rigid cables. This is because they need less energy to fold and pull during installation since they are lightweight as well.
This cable is approved and certified as per the requirements of the following international standards organizations:
• Underwriters Laboratory (UL) Standard 13 type PLTC
• Passes IEEE 383 flame test
• ASTM B3 and ASTM B8
• National Electric Code (NEC) Article 336
Tray Cable is intended to serve in harsh environmental conditions; therefore it is insulated with tough insulation materials like PVC, XHHW, Nylon or FR-EP. They offer superb chemical and mechanical protection to the cable. This improves the service life of Tray Control Cable.
It is shielded with an aluminum or polyester foil that provides 100% overall coverage. Shielding helps in maintaining the circular phase identification of the cable, as it holds the conductors in positions. The aluminum foil also prevents the conductors from direct mechanical damages.
This is the outer layer which is responsible for durability of the cable. Tray Cable is jacketed with CPE or PVC, which ensures that the safety of the cable from harsh environmental conditions.

• Heating plants
• Heavy load motors
• Fire alarms
• Power limiting circuits
FAQ Shielded tray cable eprpvc
Do your shielded tray cables meet the National Electric Code?
Yes, all our cables are manufactured keeping the National Electric Code (NEC) Article 400, Article 725and related articles in mind. These specifications are vital for safety reasons and will not compromise the quality of our products. However, the user and the electrician must also be familiar with the NEC articles so that safety is kept as a priority at all times.
Can I just patch the damaged shielded tray cables rather than replacing the entire one?
All our cables are designed with safety, utility and durability in mind. They can be used for a variety of purposes, but it is always better to replace the entire cable rather than patching it up. You will find that replacing is better when the cable is used for extreme conditions and for heavy-duty purposes. Also, it is better to get a qualified technician to do the job for you, especially when it involves repairs in hazardous conditions.
What are the common uses of shielded tray cables?
Shielded tray cables can be used for almost any applications, but the most common ones are in raceways and for ground burials, and also in wet conditions like channels and conduits. They are used at home in both wet and dry conditions and there is no fluctuation of performance under any conditions. They are mostly installed in cable trays both for indoor and outdoor applications.
What are the advantages of using a shielded tray cable?
The installation of a shielded tray cable is cheap and maintenance is easy. They are used in places where the conditions are extreme and they can withstand impact and pressure. Basically, they can be used anywhere and for most applications, but keep in mind that they are not easy to bend.
What is the ideal temperature for tray cables to work?
Shielded tray cables work well in any temperature, but they are ideally suited for work in 750Cbe it wet or dry conditions. Their temperature range can be between 1300C to 900C. Tray cables are sold only after they have been tested in various temperatures and hazardous conditions. So you can be assured of their performance no matter what you intend to use them for. However, there are shielded tray cables that are manufactured to withstand extreme temperatures also.
What are the materials used in shielded tray cables?
These types of cables are mostly made for harsh conditions and most come with EPR shields, although you can find cables with PVC, CPE and ZHLS jackets. The conductor insulation materials can be in PVC, NYLON, XHHW or FR-EP. The overall shield might come in aluminium, polyester or copper tape. The materials are specially designed to be heat, oil and moisture resistant.
