VFD cables reduce EMI 

Cables minimize capacitance, improve common mode current containment.

Cabling for VFDs can reduce EMI

Belden has expanded its line of VFD cables with the addition of 2,000 V designs with improved EMI characteristics. The company says this series features oversized XLPE insulation to provide the lowest capacitance available in a VFD cable.

Highly effective dual shielding provides low resistance to ground path, which improves common mode current containment. The 85% braid coverage offers optimum EMI low frequency noise protection, while the 100% aluminum/Mylar tape shield offers RFI high frequency noise protection. Also included in the smooth, round cables are full-size, insulated green ground wires with a yellow stripe and drain wires for ease of installation and termination.

All of Belden’s new 2,000 V UL 1277 Type TC-ER cables are UL rated for direct burial, feature black sunlight- and oil-resistant PVC jackets, and meet all applicable industry standards and specifications for VFD cables.
