Alpha Industrial Cables, Now with CSA Tray Cable Rating

Alpha Wire announced that their Series F, Series P, and Series SF cables will now carry the c(UL) TC/CIC rating. The Canadian Electrical Code (CEC) requires this rating for cabling installed in cable trays.

The three types of Alpha cables that will now feature the c(UL) TC/CIC rating are designed for use where superior flexing and flexibility are required. Each can be defined by the benefits it provides to industrial applications.

Alpha Industrial Series F cables are continuous flex cables known for their toughness and ability to withstand more than 20 million rolling flex cycles. Series P consists of stationary control cables, which feature thermoplastic elastomer jackets for great flexibility, along with excellent chemical and oil resistance. Series SF cables are servo cables, constructed for continuous movement in servo applications.

Why is the new Canadian tray cable rating important for these three series of cables? Well, they are now approved to be installed in trays, rather than conduit or pipe, which are more expensive and require more labor-intensive installations.

Allied is an authorized distributor of Alpha Wire. For more information on these cables, or their ratings, call 800-472-4655, or leave us a comment.
