General Cable will introduce its EmPowr CL Edge medium-voltage (MV) cable at WINDPOWER 2018, May 7 to 10 in Chicago. EmPowr CL Edge includes a compact phase conductor and flat strap neutral conductor, two non-hygroscopic rip cords, and cross-linked polyethylene jacketing.
“EmPowr CL Edge delivers up to 20% longer reel lengths, up to 10% reduction in diameter and weight, and enables jacket integrity testing in the field, making this new cable easier to use, faster to install, and more reliable overall,” said Joshua Katzman, VP of strategic marketing – North America, General Cable.
EmPowr CL Edge is also UL rated MV-105, enabling users to run the cable at higher temperatures without loss of reliability. It has an all-black, semi-conductive polyethylene coating.
“We listened to our customers and designed EmPowr CL Edge to deliver a solution that addressed our customers’ problems,” said Michael Noyes, VP and GM, Utility – North America, General Cable. “They asked for an easier and faster way to terminate the cable along with a more consistent method to test for jacket integrity. We delivered two ripcords to accelerate the removal of the outer jacket while adding a semi-conducting polyethylene coating to enable easier and more reliable testing of jacket integrity before and after the cable is installed.”
General Cable manufactures a broad range of renewable energy products for the terrestrial and offshore wind markets.
