  • Description

XLPO Insulation, PVC Jacket, 600/1000V UL Type TC-ER, 90°C

Cut to length - sold by the foot. Enter the desired footage in the QTY box.
Minimum 50' to maximum 1000'. Please call for longer put ups.

Applications:
A flexible, shielded power cable specifically engineered for use in variable frequency AC motor drive (VFD) applications.

Conductor:
Stranded tinned copper circuit conductors

Insulation:
Crossed-linked polyolefin (XLPO), flexible and low dielectric

Jacket:
Black sunlight resistant polyvinyl chloride (PVC)

Color Code:
262 MCM and larger: black and numbered 4/0AWG and smaller: red, white, black

Overall Shield:
Sizes 8AWG and larger: Heliically applied 5 mil bare copper tape providing 100% coverage. *10AWG and smaller: Tin-coated copper braid plus aluminum/ polyester tape providing 100% coverage.

Grounding Conductor:
Three symmetrically placed flexible stranded tinned copper conductors in direct contact with the shield

Compliances:

Other: 
• Specially engineered cable design produces a longer cable life in VFD applications
• Overall shield provides 100% coverage containing VFD EMI emissions
• High strand count design is much more flexible, easier to install and more resistant to vibration than Type MC cable.
• Specially formulated insulation material with a lower dielectric constant (standard XLPE and EPR insulation materials have higher dielectric constants) withstands reflected voltages. This allows for longer output cable distances and minimizes the effect of high frequency noise induced into the plant ground system.
• Gas and Vapor Tight - impervious to water and air. • Reduced installation time and cost compared to Type MC.
• Glands for this product cost up to 50% LESS than those for Type MC.
• Bend Radius is 12 x O.D.
