SIWO-KUL® cables are mainly used in medium-voltage motors and generators for connecting stator coils to the terminal box. They are also vital elements for wind converters, transformers, solar power inverters and other MV/LV cabinets. In drives, silicone decreases copper cross-section and gives flexibility for compactness.
SIWO-KUL® S family cables are class 5 single core cables available from1.1KV up to 15KV with a copper braid screen to avoid EMC interferences.
This product family is specifically engineered for use in variable frequency AC motor drive (VFD) applications
For voltage starting 6,6 KV & cross section above 16mm², Nexans has developed a specific patented extruded semi conductive silicon layer enabling much lower partial discharge and increasing de facto the life time of our cables.
The SIWO-KUL® S cables are required when high flexibility and high temperature conditions are present.
The operating temperature for continuous service extends from –55°C up to 180°C.
NB: this product family is also part of our Windlink® offer for Wind turbines
