SIWO-KUL® cables are mainly used in medium-voltage motors and generators for connecting stator coils to the terminal box. They are also vital elements for wind converters, transformers, solar power inverters and other MV/LV cabinets. In drives, silicone decreases copper cross-section and gives flexibility for compactness.
SIWO-KUL® D family cables are class 5 single core cables available from1.1KV up to 15KV.
This product family is designed with dual silicon insulation particularly used when the cable is not submitted to severe mechanical constraints.
For voltage starting 6,6 KV & cross section above 16mm², Nexans has developed a specific patented extruded semi conductive silicon layer enabling much lower partial discharge and increasing de facto the life time of our cables.
The SIWO-KUL™ D cables are required when high flexibility and high temperature conditions are present.
The operating temperature for continuous service extends from –55°C up to 180°C.
NB: this product family is also part of our Windlink® offer for Wind turbines
