Alpha Wire’s new “V-Flex,” a flexible version of its Series V VFD cable, to its line of Industrial Series cable. Featuring both UL and CSA tray cable ratings, a low temperature rating of -40°C, and a bend radius that is 5x that of standard VFD cable, the V-Flex offers a combination of ruggedness and routability.
The cable’s cross-linked polyethylene insulation offers resistance from corona discharge, low capacitance for longer runs, and low temperature properties to -40°C. Its TPE jacket holds everything from corroding solvents (UL Oil Res I/II) to intense sunlight. The 5x static bend radius allows V-Flex to bend to fit in tight corners. The round, symmetrical design reduces the diameter of the cable and increases its flexibility for easier routing and handling.
The V-Flex cable has a TPE jacket and is available from 16 AWG to 4 AWG, with a temperature range of -40°C to +90°C. The cables use a double shielding system to provide maximum EMI protection over a wide frequency range. The shielding is a combination of aluminum/polyester/aluminum foil and copper braid with 85% coverage.
Compatible with systems from all major VFD manufacturers, the new Series V-Flex cables are approved to a wide range of standards, including CSA CIC Control and TC and UL TC-ER, 1000 V Motor Supply Cable, and Sunlight Resistance. This series is also suitable for use in NFPA 79 applications.
