Meet the Most Flexible Drive Cable In Its Class

Posted by Cody Bohl in Cables Milwaukee

LUTZE DRIVEFLEX is a family of drive cables designed to meet the unique electrical challenges in VFD and Servo applications. All DRIVEFLEX cables use a special formulation of cross linked polyethylene insulation (XLPE), providing excellent electrical characteristic while maintaining the utmost flexibility for a Drive Cable.

DRIVEFLEX cables are safer and more efficient compared with traditional PVC/Nylon power tray cables or THHN wires in conduit. DRIVEFLEX XLPE insulation has very low capacitance, high impedance, and high voltage breakthrough resistance. XLPE insulation is the superior choice for VFD applications with pulse width modulation (PWM) to cope with high voltage spikes and power distortions from the VFD output.

The LUTZE DRIVEFLEX cables have a variety of applications including:

  • Shielded multi-conductor cable for VFD and motor applications to connect power from drives to motors
  • Cable design for harsh industrial environments and operating conditions with high noise levels
  • XLPE thick wall insulation with low capacitance, ideal for applications with high voltage spikes and long cable runs
  • Compliant with NFPA 79 for wiring of industrial machinery
  • TC-ER for use with cable trays without conduit, which can reduce material and labor costs
  • WTTC – wind turbine tray cable rating for use in wind power generation
  • Use in dry, damp, or wet conditions
