VSD Connection Designed for the connection of AC Variable Speed Drives (VSD) or where a ﬂexible EMC screened cable is required. These cables are flexible for fixed installation as well as occasional flexing without tensile load.
RFI & EMI Protection With double screening (CBS & foil tape) and split interstitial earth cores (6mm² and above), this cable has optimum screening performance of low frequency and electromagnetic output.
Pumping Suitable for permanent submersion up to 500 metres.
- Extra durable rubber sheath
- Prevents reactance with other devices outside the plant
- UV stabilised
- Flame retardant
- Water and moisture resistant
- Resistant to environmental factors such as oxidation, ozone and sunlight
- To be earthed using an EMC compatible gland
- Suitable for permanent submersion to 500 metres
- Heat, oil and chemical resistant (see Chemical Rating Chart)
Conductor Annealed plain copper stranded high flexibility (Class 5).
Insulation Black sheathed cables are up to 6.0mm² XLPE X-90, 10mm² and above and 5 core EPR.
Screening 3 and 4 core up to 4.0mm² aluminium / mylar tape plus tinned copper braid, 4 core 6mm² and above tinned copper braid and split earth cores, 5 core aluminium / mylar tape plus tinned copper braid (all copper braids are minimum 85% coverage plus either aluminium / mylar foil tape or split interstitial earth cores to give even greater EMC protection).
