Alpha Wire Announces Expanded Inventory on VFD Cable
Press release date: August 18, 2014
Elizabeth, NJ, – Alpha Wire is now carrying inventory on all sizes of Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) cable – from 4/0 to 16 AWG – in an effort to better serve growing demand. Included is Alpha’s Series V line of VFD cable and the new V-Flex, a flexible version of the Series V.
Alpha’s Series V cables are noted for their roundness and cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation + ground conductors. The round design helps achieve IP67 and NEMA 6 designations, while the XLPE core coupled with a foil/braid shield (copper tape in the larger AWG sizes) is required to control the stressful high frequency signal common in VFD systems. The V-Flex features the same benefits in a flexible configuration best for on-machine applications where routing can be an issue.
“We believe our VFD product is second-to-none,” claims Tim Howlett, Director of Marketing, “and we wanted to ensure our service is best in the industry as well.
“With broad stock levels, free cut-to-length, and same day delivery, we think we are well-positioned to service our customers in excess of their demands.”
Compatible with systems from all major VFD manufacturers, Alpha’s VFD line encompasses both 3- and 4-conductor versions from 4/0 to 16 AWG. UL TC-ER and CSA TC rated, Alpha VFD can handle voltage up to 1kV per the UL Flexible Motor Supply Cable rating. For more information, call 1 -800-52-ALPHA or visit www.alphawire.com/VFD.
