IndustrialTuff VFD cables from Belden

Belden has expanded its line of IndustrialTuff variable frequency drive (VFD) cables with products that are designed to carry power from AC drive systems to AC motors.

All of Belden's variable frequency AC motor drive output cables are designed to operate in harsh industrial operating environments characterized by high voltage spikes, high noise levels and adverse environmental conditions. Construction features include thicker industrial-grade XLPE insulation, high-strand tinned copper circuit conductors as well as industrial-grade, oil- and sunlight-resistant PVC jackets.

The VFD cables are TC-ER and UL Direct Burial rated, RoHS compliant, CE approved and certified to numerous industrial safety standards, according to the company. They are approved for use by Rockwell Automation and are suitable for drives made by major drive manufacturers.

The VFD 1000V UL flexible motor supply cable line-up now includes:

  • Part numbers 29528 to 29532: a series of five symmetrical 3-conductor, 1 to 4/0 AWG, 600V UL1277, VFD cables. The symmetrical ground design of the cables combines the benefits of Belden's classic VFD cables with additional features for use on larger, more powerful AC motor drives. Two spiral copper tape shields provide improved flexibility and radiated and conducted noise protection.

  • Part numbers 29510 to 29513: a series of four 10 to 16 AWG, 600V UL 1277 cables incorporating a signal pair for brake applications. The cables feature an overall Beldfoil shield and 85 percent TC braid shield for radiated and conducted noise protection.

  • Part numbers 29500 to 29507: the classic series of eight 2 to 8 AWG, 600V UL 1277, 3-stranded TC circuit conductor cables feature overall Beldfoil shield and 85 percent TC braid shield for radiated and conducted noise protection.
