C&M Corporation, a vertically integrated manufacturer of bulk cable, coil cords, and cable assemblies, has announced the release of a new case history focusing on the applications of Hytrel® and written in conjunction with DuPont™.

This document examines the advantages of Hytrel®, a thermoplastic polyester elastomer insulation, as part of VFD cable constructions. The advantages Hytrel® offers to this product family, such as reduced size, improved flex life, corona resistance, and available UL certifications, are discussed in the history.

Also included in the study are various particulars of Hytrel® to include material specifics and extrusion attributes.

VFD (Variable Frequency Drives) are a staple of industrial equipment. By varying the frequency of the signal utilized by the drives, the speed of the associated unit can be adjusted. This technology requires sound shielding strategies within the cable products in addition to reliable signal carrying capabilities. In addition, based on the usage, various agency approvals for the VFD cables are required. Hytrel® allows for reliable performance, to include high flex, while providing smaller sizes and lighter weights than constructions utilizing alternate materials.

The new white paper is available for download from the C&M website and can be found in the "White Papers" section of the "Literature Library" located under the "Resources" tab of the home page.
