Plexed cable assembly provides installation cost savings to electrical contractors
ATLANTA, GA, Dec. 14 /CNW Telbec/ - Alcan Cable, a business of Rio Tinto Alcan, unveiled today its new NUAL® FeederPlex HS™ RW90 cable, an innovative, high speed wiring solution for pipe and wire installations in commercial, institutional and industrial building applications. NUAL® FeederPlex HS™ cable consists of aluminum alloy conductors insulated with a specially formulated insulation, colour coded for phase identification, and then twisted together into one assembly that allows for clean, accurate and quick cable installations.
"As the first plexed, aluminum alloy conductor assembly offered for pipe and wire installations, FeederPlex HS™ cable significantly reduces the time required to pull the cable into the conduit," said Jack Miller, President, Alcan Cable. "The introduction of FeederPlex HS™ cable demonstrates Alcan Cable's continuous commitment to provide high quality, cost effective and time-saving solutions that deliver real bottom-line savings to the contractor."
As a factory produced, plexed assembly of lightweight and flexible NUAL® type RW90 conductors, FeederPlex HS™ cables eliminate the need to parallel and lubricate multiple conductors at the job site. As a result, FeederPlex HS™ cables minimize the number of reels and product SKUs required for stocking each colour and wire size combination. In addition, FeederPlex HS™ RW90 improves cable performance by providing lower voltage drop over that of single RW90 conductors in parallel.
NUAL® FeederPlex HS™ RW90 cables are CSA approved for use in accordance with the recommendations of the Canadian Electrical Code in Canada, and are available in three and four conductor assemblies in a wide range of sizes.
Recognized as the only fully integrated aluminum cable supplier in North America, Alcan Cable has provided its customers with quality products and outstanding customer service for over 100 years. With its headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, Alcan Cable is a leading manufacturer of aluminum cable, and aluminum rod and strip products, and has six manufacturing operations - five in North America and one in China.
