By Renée Francoeur
September 13, 2016 – Cable manufacturer Helukabel now offers a cross-linked (thermoset) polyethylene (XLPE) insulated control cable that it says is suited for industrial equipment manufacturers in Canada and those that export to the United States.
The new Tray X is a tray-rated, flexible control power cable suitable for all machinery in tool and plant construction. According to the company, it can be installed in dry, humid and damp environments, in pipes, underground, and for open, unprotected installation from the cable rack to industrial plant machinery. It is 600V and WTTC (wind turbine tray cable) 1000V rated, meaning it can be used in 1kV wind turbine cable tray applications. Additionally, the product is CE approved for machine builders exporting to European countries.
It is currently available in sizes 20AWG – 500 kcmil with various conductor configurations. For customers working in facilities where high levels of electromagnetic interference are prevalent, a shielded variant is available upon request.
