High ampacity XLPE cables (105°C)
APAR offers XLPE Cables in LV (up to 1100 V) and medium voltage (3.3 up to 33 kV), with XLPE insulation suitable for maximum continuous operating temperatures of 105°C, instead of conventional maximum operating temperatures of 90°C. As a result, these cables can carry up to 15% more current.
|Application||Ideal for use in high ambient temperature zones like northern India, where summer temperatures go up to 50°C. They are also used in Middle Eastern countries where summer temperatures go as high as 55°C.|
|Characteristics||XLPE insulation is suitable for maximum continuous operating temperatures of 105°C instead of the conventional XLPE, with maximum operating temperatures of 90°C. Thus these cables can carry up to 15% more current.|
|Applicable standards||All applicable standards|
|Product range||Full range of LV and MV cables|
|Advantages||Due to high ambient temperatures, the cables’ current-carrying capacity is de-rated. By using these cables one can avoid using higher cross sections of conductors, thereby reducing cost.|
