Belden expanded its line of variable frequency drive (VFD) cables that carry power from industrial AC drive systems to AC motors. The product additions include eight symmetrical ground design, three-conductor 16 AWG to 2 AWG VFD cables that support a broad range of installation options and customer requirements including MSHA and UL direct burial approvals. These cables feature a dual copper tape shielding to provide a low resistance path to ground, improving common mode current containment. The dual spirally applied tapes provide improved flexibility and radiated and conducted noise protection. Three symmetrical bare ground wires provide a balanced ground system that reduces AC motor shaft voltage, reducing the likelihood of premature motor bearing or motor insulation failure.
