Product information of the PowerAmp-AMS cable
Highly flexible, stranded aluminium power cable insulated with excellent rubber materials. For use as connection in switch-gear where very small bending radius is required.
- Oil resistant
This PowerAmp-AMS cable is designed and developed by Incore Cables. Incore Cables offers you a unique product with many advantages compared to existing products. Safety and quality are guaranteed as the cable meets national and international standards and in some cases 3rd party approvals. Please check out our web page if you want to know more about Innovated by Incore Cables.
Applicable in ATEX zones
Cables used in ATEX zones need to comply with certain (construction) requirements. The PowerAmp-AMS cable meets these requirements. We will give you two examples. Empty spaces between the cores are not allowed as this makes the transportation of flammable liquids and gasses possible. Therefore, the bedding or the inner sheath of the cable needs to be pressed. Another requirement is that the outer sheath of the cable must be made of an elastomer, a thermoplastic or a thermoset material.
Advantages of the PowerAmp-AMS cable
The PowerAmp-AMS cable is a flexible cable, ideal for mobile use. This means that the cable can be used several times and can be applied for temporary purposes. In addition, it is easy to handle and pliant making it easy and compact to store. Its flexibility is also an advantage for small-spaced fixed installations as smaller bends can be made. Due to the flexibility of the cable, it is easier and faster to install, which saves more time and reduces costs.
The conductors of the PowerAmp-AMS cable are made of aluminium. An aluminium cable is 20% to 50% less expensive than its copper variant, without reducing its quality and lifespan.
The PowerAmp-AMS cable is oil resistant which means the cable can withstand aggressive oil containing substances. These substances will not affect the cable, the functionality of the cable will be maintained and the risk of irreparable damage is lower.
Tinned copper wires screen
This tinned copper wire can be applied in different ways during production. Usually, many thin wires are applied evenly around the inside of a cable in a spiral, sometimes in a wave pattern. This method of armouring is more flexible than braided wires. Because the wires are tinned, the PowerAmp-AMS cable is suitable for use in corrosive environments and it makes them easier to solder. This is useful when machine vibrations might threaten connections.
Lightweight / Aluminium
This cable is lightweight because the conductors of the PowerAmp-AMS cable are made of aluminium. Compared to a similar cable with copper conductors it can weigh up to 50% less. First of all, this is ideal during installation, installing the cable will be easier and more efficient. Secondly, a lightweight cable reduces transport costs and decreases the weight put on supporting and load-bearing constructions.
Cables used to be responsible for spreading fire. The PowerAmp-AMS cable is flame retardant. This means that this cable is designed in a way that it will not spread fire. Cables with these advantages are often used in buildings and at locations where people live, work and travel / move.
