The series also includes four new 10- to 16-AWG, 600-volt UL 1277 cables incorporating a signal pair for brake applications. The cables feature an overall shield, plus 85% TC braid shield for radiated and conducted noise protection. All variable-frequency AC motor drive output cables feature robust construction for use in harsh industrial operating environments. Construction features include: thick, industrial-grade XLPE insulation; high-strand tinned copper circuit conductors; and industrial-grade, oil- and sunlight-resistant PVC jackets. The cables are TC-ER- and UL-direct burial rated, RoHS-compliant and CE-approved.
