December 1, 2008--Isotec, Inc.'s SIMTRA line of power cables feature patented, ferrite-barrier technology that allows them to be distributed and installed in the same conduit or in parallel locations with low-voltage audio, video, or network cables.
Traditional power cables require a separate run to create distance between the low-voltage cabling and power cabling, often times through multiple conduit runs, which can add cost and labor to the installation. To eliminate the need for separate runs, the conductors in SMITRA power cables are surrounded by a patented ferrite compound that provides a barrier within the cable to attenuate surges and transients, virtually eliminating interference to the adjacent low-voltage cabling.
Through patented technology, SIMTRA cables are designed to virtually eliminate transients and interference, making them suitable for all-in-one cabling installations involving data, audio, video, or speaker wire. They are also designed for installations where space or access for cable runs is limited.
"SIMTRA cables are the answer to many difficult installations, especially where space is a challenge," says Scott Fehl, director of marketing for Isotec. "SIMTRA cables conform with NEC articles and are UL listed for permanent installation."
UL-listed cables are available in TC or NM-B UL-rated versions for permanent installation in a variety of applications, and conform with NEC article sections 725.136, 760.136, 770.133, 800.133, 800.179, 820.133, & 830.133. They are available with three, four, five or six THHN/THWN conductors at 16 AWG to 6 AWG in a UL-rated, flame retardant, orange PVC jacket.
In addition to single-element versions, SIMTRA power cables are also available in Fusion-bundled and HVAC-bundled versions for simplified installation of power and low-voltage cables in a single run or pull.
