The Belden cables are designed to support a broad range of installation options and customer requirements, including MSHA and UL direct burial approvals. They complement the current symmetrical ground design products available in 1 to 4/0 AWG. The cables feature dual copper tape shielding to provide a low resistance path to ground to improve common mode current containment. The dual spirally applied tapes provide improved flexibility and effective radiated and conducted noise protection.

Three symmetrical bare ground wires provide a balanced ground system, which reduces ac motor shaft voltage. All ac motor drive output cables provide the construction required to deliver excellent electrical performance in demanding industrial operating environments, characterized by high voltage spikes, high noise levels, and adverse environmental conditions. They feature industrial-grade XLPE insulated circuit conductors, stranded tinned copper circuit conductors, and industrial-grade, sunlight- and oil-resistant PVC jackets.

For deployment in extremely hazardous environments, where cables may be exposed to the risk of crushing or cut-through, cables are also available in aluminum or steel armored versions.
