AutomationDirect has added new LUTZE DRIVEFLEX and MOTIONFLEX variable frequency drive cables which provide supreme protection against electromagnetic interference (EMI).
These cables are available in 18 to 8 AWG sizes and include four black conductors with a green/yellow ground conductor of the same gauge. Each conductor is labeled for easy identification and is covered in a cross-linked Polyethylene (XLPE) insulation (type XHHW-2) that is oil and sun resistant, suitable for dry, damp, or wet locations, and approved for direct burial.
The DRIVEFLEX series has a black PVC outer jacket ideal for stationary applications, while the MOTIONFLEX series has a black thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) outer jacket designed for continuous motion applications. Both cables are tray cable-exposed run rated (TCER) for use in cable trays with or without conduit, which can significantly reduce installation costs.
The new DRIVEFLEX series cable starts at $2.58 /ft. and the MOTIONFLEX series cable starts at $3.67 /ft. Both cables are made in the USA and can be ordered cut to length in 1-foot increments with a 10ft minimum.
