AmerCable’s 600-2000 Volt four conductor
cables are recommended for installations
where long flex life, great flexibility and
wearability are desired. Applications include
heavy duty or temporary power supply
service, AC or DC, to motor or generators,
portable and stationary heavy duty
equipment, cranes, conveyors and other
mobile equipment. They are also recommended
for use on Payout and Retractable reels,
festoons, suspended loops and power
tracks. They may be installed in air, in ducts,
immersed in water or directly buried in the
earth. However, they are not UL Type USE.
For cables requiring reduced flame
propagation, refer to the factory.

A flexible, braid and foil shielded, 2kV power
cable specifically engineered for use in
variable frequency AC motor drive (VFD)
applications.
Features
n Specially engineered cable design produces
a longer cable life in VFD applications
n Overall braid and foil shield provides 100%
coverage containing VFD EMI emissions
n Symmetrical ground conductors reduce
induced voltage imbalances and carry
common mode noise back to the drive
n High strand count conductors and braid
shield design is much more flexible, easier
to install and more resistant to vibration
than Type MC cable
n Gexol’s lower dielectric constant (standard
XLPEs and EPRs have higher dielectric
constants) reduces reflected wave peak
voltage magnitudes. This allows for longer
output cable distances and minimizes the
effect of high frequency noise induced
into the plant ground system.
n 2kV insulation thickness resists the
repetitive 2-3x voltage spikes from 600V
VFDs and reduces drive over-current trip
problems due to cable charging current
n Severe cold durability: exceeds CSA cold
bend/cold impact (-40˚C/-35˚C)
n Meets crush and impact requirements for
Type MC cable.
n Optional tinned copper basket weave wire
armor* per IEEE 1580 and UL 1309/

n Optional sheath* – A black, arctic grade,

meeting UL 1309/CSA 245 and IEEE 1580.
*For armored versions the braid is placed between in
inner jacket and outer sheath where it serves as both
the EMI shield and armor.

Application Note
Jumper cables should NOT be used in place of normal high voltage cables. They should
be isolated in areas where contact with people is limited. Because jumper cables cannot be
protected against prolonged contact with other conductors or grounds by shielding, these
cables must be positioned away from contact with grounds, transformer cases, cross-arms,
etc., to avoid possible high stress and capacitance leakage. Cables should be installed with at
least one cable diameter of separation between adjacent conductors and between conductors
and all metallic and/or electrically grounded parts. These cables are not intended for
permanent service.
