The patented ServiceDrive VFD Cable System from Service Wire (Culloden, WV) is a solution for issues commonly associated with VFD applications. The new NFPA 79 requirements reinforce the need for thermoset insulated conductors, which Service Wire has always had. According to the company, it uses the recommended thermoset insulation and tray rated products listed to UL 1277 and UL 2277, and its cable system includes multiple grounds, proper shielding and proper shield termination.
When specifying cables for VFD applications, the NFPA 79 compliant ServiceDrive system is the preferred solution. It protects drives from common-mode, corona discharge and crosstalk that can ultimately lead to drive or motor failure. Key to the system’s performance is a combination of unique cable with three balanced grounds, copper tape shield, patented self-terminating connector and termination kit.
The ServiceDrive VFD Cable System is available in #14 AWG-750 Kcmil, 600V or 2kV copper, shielded, interlocked armor or tray cable with overall ServiceDrive (PVC) or ServiceDrive Plus (Factory Mutual Group 1 LSZH) jacket.
