LT Power Cable (XLPE/PVC: available with double insulation for more flexibility

LT Power Cables are widely demanded in current market as they are incorporated with XLPE/PVC insulation. These cables are used for accurate signal transmission and widely used in various industries such as: fertilizers, medical, railways, oil, petrochemicals, automotive, cement, electronics, steel, space, gas, power industries and many more. These cables are made up of premium quality raw material and used to transmit signals at high as well as low bandwidth. The conductor of these cables is made by annealed aluminum and electrolytic copper which helps in providing them flexibility. These cables are very cheap in comparison with other cables and available in different colors and lengths.

The voltage rating of these cables is up to 1100 V AC / 1500 V DC. They are available in both shielded and unshielded forms. These cables are very durable and can be used in worst climatic conditions as they are fire resistant. These cables are made up of polyethylene which is a thermoplastic material incorporated with hydrocarbons and protect them from chemical and electrical attacks. These cables contain high current carrying capacity and their melting point is 110°C. They are incorporated with various advantages such as:

  • High flexibility
  • Light in weight and easy to be implemented
  • Their current rate is very high
  • Better chemical and electrical resistance
  • Ability to survive in worst climatic conditions
  • Incorporated with more durability in comparison with other cables
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Acidic and electromagnetic interferences resistance

These LT Power Cables are mainly used for power transmission in high current rate. They can be used for both indoor and outdoor cabling, also can be used for commercial and domestic purpose. They are available in different colors and length according to cores. They are wrapped with thick insulation which is used to increase the life of these cables. Their inner sheath is made up of PVC/LD tape and outer sheath is made by special ST2 grade is used for XLPE cable and ST1grade is used for PVC cable.

Advantages of PVC cables:

  • Special corrosion resistance
  • Do not get affected by vibration
  • Incorporated with Non-hygroscopic
  • Aging characteristics
  • Vertical installation is also possible

Advantages of XLPE cables:

  • Installation cost is very less because of their light weight
  • High short circuit rating
  • XLPE cables are quicker and stronger
  • Easy to install
  • More reliable
  • Better resistance from chemical and electrical attacks
  • Ability to transmit more accurate signals

These LT Power Cables are more popular as they are incorporated with double insulation jacket which is used to provide protection from unwanted interferences and crosstalk. These cables are flexible and easy to install. They are required to transmit accurate signals at high as well as low bandwidth.
