Atlanta, GA July 22, 2013
Superior Essex Inc. announces the completion of the Medium Voltage MV-105 Power Cable Product line. This new series (E8xLE) is suitable for industrial power applications to interconnect equipment, typically in manufacturing facilities.
The product family includes voltages 5kV through 15kV with features such as Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) insulation, helically applied Copper Tape Shield (CTS), and a Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) jacket. Each cable is manufactured in our new facility in Tarboro, NC that utilizes a state-of-the-art Continuous Catenary Vulcanization (CCV) equipment line. These products have successfully completed the ICEA and AEIC compliance testing and obtained UL listings.
“We have reached a milestone with our manufacturing facility in North Carolina. We can now offer our customers medium voltage solutions only two years after the Groundbreaking Ceremony. The Energy Cable Team here at Superior Essex continues to expand our product offering using their expertise and the latest industry technology to become an energy cable provider in the markets we serve. This development will help us continue to diversify our product lines to meet the needs of more markets and applications,” says Steve Waller, Vice President of Sales, Energy Products.
The new line of Medium Voltage power cables will complement the existing Low Voltage (Instrumentation, Control and Power) product families used for Industrial and Commercial applications. This product launch is one of multiple medium voltage products that will lead us into other markets, such as the Utility sector for power distribution applications.
“We believe that this product launch reflects our commitment to the market as we continue to give our customers more reasons for being a strategic partner as we support their effort for growth,” says Steve Campbell, Senior Director, Technology.
