Standard Electric and LUTZE are proud to present the DRIVEFLEX® VFD cable series. These cables are designed to meet the unique electrical challenges in VFD and Servo applications. All DRIVEFLEX® VFD cables use a special formulation of cross linked polyethylene insulation (XLPE), providing excellent electrical characteristics while maintaining the utmost flexibility for a drive cable.

Key Advantages

  • Thermoset insulation designed to cope with power distortions in VFD applications
  • UL listed type "Flexible VFD Servo Cable, Flexible Motor Supply Cable"
  • Superior electrical values for VFD applications
  • Flexible for easy routing and installation

Why LUTZE DRIVEFLEX®?

The most flexible VFD Cable in its class for the easiest handling and installation. It is engineered for optimal VFD performance, motor efficiency and noise reduction. Coming with a rugged design for long life span in harsh industrial environments. DRIVEFLEX® cables are also UL listed for use in a wide variety of application areas.

Application

  • Dual-shielded motor supply cable to connect power to 3-phase motors, VFD’s and servo drives
  • Cable design for harsh industrial environments and operating conditions with high noise levels
  • Thermoset XLPE insulation offering superior overload and short-circuit temperature
  • Type XHHW-2 insulation offering smaller ODs for general VFD applications
  • Increased wall thickness insulation type RHW-2, offering lower capacitance and higher impedance making it ideal for applications with high voltage spikes and long cable runs.
  • Compliant with NFPA 79 requirements
  • TC-ER-JP for use with cable trays without conduit, which can reduce installation costs in industrial environments.
  • WTTC – wind turbine tray cable rating for use in wind power generation
  • Dry, damp, or wet conditions
