Alcan Cable, a division of Alcan Inc.'s Engineered Products group, introduced today its new STABILOY(R) FeederPlex(TM) cable, an innovative solution for phase conductor identification in commercial and industrial applications. Consisting of a plexed assembly of STABILOY Type XHHW-2 conductors with color coded phase conductors, FeederPlex provides total installed cost savings for pipe and wire installations while providing clear phase identification.
"As the only plexed aluminum conductor assembly offered in the marketplace today, FeederPlex cable offers a unique solution to phase identification requirements," said Ian Hewett, President, Alcan Cable. "The introduction of FeederPlex cable demonstrates Alcan Cable's continuous commitment to deliver quality products and innovative solutions to our customers," he added.
The light weight and flexibility of STABILOY aluminum conductors facilitates the pulling of the conductor assemblies into a raceway during installation. FeederPlex cable eliminates the need to assemble and parallel multiple conductors and minimizes the number of reels and product SKUs required for stocking each color and wire size combination at the job site. In addition, the use of FeederPlex improves cable performance by providing lower voltage drop than the assembly of paralleled conductors.
STABILOY FeederPlex cables are UL listed, approved for use in accordance with the recommendations of the National Electrical Code in the U.S.A., 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 is a leading manufacturer of aluminum and aluminum alloy cables for the utility, residential, commercial, institutional and industrial construction markets.
