Industrial VFD Cable, Variable Frequency Drive Cable for Industrial Use

Galaxy provides Industrial VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) cables to a variety of markets that include nuclear power, off shore oil & gas, factory automation, power generation, solar and wind.

 

What is Industrial VFD Cable?

Industrial VFD cables are designed to reliably carry power for Variable Frequency AC drive systems. Galaxy’s Industrial VFD cables can support the high power levels of the pulse-width modulated (PWM) signals and are built for high performance and demanding applications. This includes handling high voltage spikes and eliminating potential damage to the cable, motors, bearings, drives and other related equipment. Industrial cables are typically used with instrumentation, power and control devices. These cables can range in voltage from 300V to 35KV in a variety of jacketing materials suited for specific applications.

 

Industrial VFD Cable Specifications

Galaxy’s Industrial VFD cables are manufactured using durable, industrial-grade XLPE insulations. This will provide low capacitance for extended motor life, reduced likelihood of corona discharge, reduced magnitude of standing waves and increased efficiency of power transfer. Robust grounds and shielding systems minimize radiated and conducted noise that can disrupt plant control and instrumentation systems. Industrial-grade PVC jackets provide sunlight and oil resistance. A UL ER rating allows cable routing outside of the conduit for easier and less expensive installations.
