Variable Frequency Drive or VFD Cables provide more precise motor control and improved power efficiency for AC motors than traditional DC motor cables.

Due to their robust manufacturing, VFD cables they can reliably carry power from AC drive system to motors, extend motor life, reduce corona discharge, reduce magnitude of standing waves, increase efficiency of power transfer, reliably handle high voltage spikes, and they are sunlight and oil resistant. VFD cables eliminate downtime due to cable failure.

VFD cables are used in a variety of industries including industrial motion control, commercial flow and pumping, and extrusion applications.

ShowMeCables carries a wide variety of VFD Cables in different lengths, sizes, routing, and shielding types.

The VFD cables are capable of working in harsh conditions and environments which include high voltage spikes, high noise, and high interference. With superior shielded VFD cables from ShowMeCables you can effectively prevent interference from frequencies from VFD cables.
