Reduced Diameter OLFLEX® VFD SLIM with "Lapp Surge Guard" Insulation: First VFD Cable with UL & CSA TC Approval
Florham Park, NJ --Lapp USA, a Lapp Group Company, has introduced the first VFD cable with UL and CSA TC approvals in the U.S.
OLFLEX® VFD Slim is a reduced diameter shielded motor supply cable for variable frequency drives. OLFLEX®VFD Slim is designed with "Lapp Surge Guard" to hold up to the non-linear power distortions associated with VFD drives. This cable has a specially blended PVC jacket that is TC approved for both UL and CSA standards for 600 volts. OLFLEX® VFD Slim is UL Type TC-ER approved. (UL Type TC-ER stands for "exposed run" and is replacing the term "open wiring". It is a change in terminology only.) It is also approved for 1000 volts by ULAWM and is c(UL) TC and CSAAWM approved.
Lapp USA's unique VFD Slim design is different when compared to other VFD motor supply cables, thanks to "Lapp Surge Guard", a special semi-conductive insulation. This special material smooths out the stranded copper, disperses increases in voltage caused by wave reflections, harmonics and spikes, and prevents conductor and cable failure, thus eliminating downtime. OLFLEX® VFD Slim also conforms to CE and NOM making it a globally accepted solution.
