VFD (Variable Frequency Drives)
Variable Frequency Drive Cables (VFD) cables are designed to connect motors to control drives where there is a requirement for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) , they need to handle the harsh electrical environment which standard cables cannot .
VFD Systems characteristically create a significant amount of electrical noise in the form of voltage spikes, reflected waves , charging currents, common-mode voltage and RFI/EMI interference. This leads to voltages which are two to three times the source voltage. Where VFD cables are not used this could result in insulation breakdown and cable failure. Non-VFD cable also allows common-mode (or stray) voltage to find its way through the VFD motor and equipment grounds, which causes motor and equipment failure. VFD cable significantly reduces the risk associated with these issues.
These cables are installed in the most demanding industrial environments , they have Low Smoke Zero Halogen sheath as standard , versions with DNV approval for Offshore and other marine environments are also available.
