General Cable has announced the availability of its EmPowr Link CL Advantage Cable, the next step in medium-voltage technology to deliver reliability and performance for solar and wind energy collection systems.
The cable offers physical protection to endure the rigors of today’s collection system installation methods. This cost-effective cable solution is built on widely accepted electrical advancements of Cross-linked Polyethylene (XLPE) jacketing, and optimized neutral designs to provide a compact, lightweight cable delivering more Advantage than ever before. Rather than conventional round concentric neutral wires, industry-proven flat strap neutrals encapsulated under the EmPowr Link CL Advantage Cable’s XLPE jacket provide better mechanical protection for the insulated core to withstand the pressures of automated cable handling equipment and an armor-like force to resist potential underground damages. This minimizes the risk of expensive repairs while enhancing profitability. Through extensive testing, the EmPowr Link CL Advantage Cable has been proven to provide the equivalent physical properties, coefficient of friction and easy installation characteristics of our traditional EmPowr Link CL XLPE jacket construction, while offering enhanced ruggedized installation protection, reduced weight and diameter, and highly efficient fault current protection.
