FIREGUARD Flame Retardant Cables

Flame Retardant Power & Control Cables

600/1000V XLPE Insulated, PVC Sheathed, Screened Power Cables (3C+3E)

FGD300 1RCV-R (CU/XLPE/CUTO/PVC 600/1000V Class 2)

600/1000V XLPE Insulated, PVC Sheathed, Screened Power Cables (3C+3E)

APPLICATION

The cables are designed specifically to suit the broad spectrum of requirements of Variable Speed Drives and

also include features for reducing the transmission of electromagnetic interference. These range of cables are

able to reduce capacitance of power conductors and have an electrically balanced construction which includes

split earths and a copper screen. This range of screened cables drastically reduce interferences from electrical

noise, especially in Variable Speed Drive (VSD) applications and are manufactured with fixed conductors. With

shield conductivity of 1/10th of phase conductor conductivity, this range of VSD cables effectively restrain

radiated and conducted radio-frequency emissions.
