FIVENORM – One Cable, Five Standards, Multiple Color Options
Plant engineers and machine manufacturers who export their products internationally are familiar with this challenge: each target market has its own standards and regulations that all installed components must comply. Occasionally, this results in the need for increased inventory levels because many supplied parts are only certified according to one standard at a time. A machine that is sold on the European market as well as on the American and Asian markets may require three versions of the same part.
For cabling, HELUKABEL offers a simple and cost-effective solution with FIVENORM single conductor cables. The PVC-insulated copper cables are certified according to all common approvals such as UL, CSA, MTW, VDE and EAC. This means that they can be used worldwide and, thanks in particular to the Machine Tool Wiring (MTW) listing, they are suitable for the entire mechanical engineering sector. Export-oriented companies therefore benefit from more efficient inventory and a simplified list of parts.
FIVENORM single conductor cables, manufactured in Germany to the highest quality standards, are available with multiple color options. Smaller conductor diameters between AWG20 and 10 (0.5 and 6 mm²) are supplied by HELUKABEL not only using cable drums, but also in practical 328-foot (100-meter) cardboard boxes. This facilitates the handling of smaller quantities and in turn simplifies machine cabling. Even more, with FIVENORM single conductor cables, users benefit from an increased maximum conductor temperature of 90°C as well as an extended voltage range of up to 1,000 volts AC or 1,250 volts DC.
