Uses and Applications of Type GG – C Industrial Power Cable
Type GG – C Industrial Power Cables are manufactured with rope-lay, stranded, annealed bare copper conductors. These conductors are then insulated with premium grade 90°C EPDM (Ethylene Propylene) which is usually color coded. The insulated conductors are then assembled round with insulated grounding conductors and suitable non-wicking rubber fillers. These UL listed cables conforms to majorinternational standards such as CSA and MSHA, RoHS Compliance andFT-5 Flame Test.
Unique Technical Featuresof Type GG – C Industrial Power Cable
The Type GG – C Industrial Power Cables have excellent impact and abrasion resistance. These cables are generally designed with high resistance towards oils, solvents, ozone, sunlight and aging. The rope lay stranding gives the cable maximum flex life. The cable is specifically designed for superior flexibility and toughness. They have non-wicking rubber fillers (GGC) and are usually easily identifiable because of their indent print.
The conductors are covered with a Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE) black jacket which is flame retardant and possess good mechanical properties. The temperature rating for Type GG – C Industrial Power Cables is set between the ranges -40°C to +90°C. The cables have been rated at 2000 volts and can be operated for up to 90°C in dry locations and 75°C in wet locations.
Specific Applicationsof Type GG – C Industrial Power Cable
Type GG – C Industrial Power Cables are specifically suitable for portable power supply use in industrial and mining applications, heavy duty service power cable applications and can be used as power cable for mobile and portable electrical equipment at a continuous conductor temperature of about 90°C. Other applications for these types of cables include AC mining machines, drills & cutting machines, loaders and other portable and mobile equipment which requires a self-containing grounding conductor and continuous ground monitoring conductor. It is also suitable for wet or marine applications.
