Which Cable Jacket Material is Right for your Application?

When purchasing a piece of equipment that has cabling - like worksite lighting or cordsets - you have many options at your disposal for customization with Ericson Manufacturing. Cord length and circuit type are common attributes that are often the first to be considered, but just as important (or even more so) is the jacket material.

How is your cable being protected?
The "jacket" is what you see when looking at a cable; it's the outside of the cabling that protects the wires from the elements, abrasion, and other workplace hazards. But not all jackets are created equal and they all have attributes that make them suitable for different areas or tasks. Download the full article to explore three common jacket types.


Starline Product Updates:
CPM product line now includes the Retrofit & Corded CPM

The Corded CPM is a standalone device that will be assembled with the necessary plug and connector body, and can be easily added in-line. Custom cord lengths and plug/connector body configurations are available to meet the specific metering requirements of each installation. With two versions of the device available, any load up to 63 amp three-phase can have monitoring added post installation.

The Retrofit CPM is available in both end feed and plug-in unit versions for existing Starline Track Busway installations. The CPM is housed in a small enclosure with an adjustable pass-through in order for the meter to be easily mounted to devices. You have two options for implementing the Retrofit CPM: in the field or at the factory.

Hoffman's Internal Disconnect Shield: Reduce Risk, Increase Safety.

The Internal Disconnect Shield helps reduce the risk of electric shock and arc flash by providing a method to barrier the disconnect switch inside the main enclosure, which minimizes incidental contact or exposure to the line side lugs. It can be retrofitted in an existing system or integrated into a new system to help increase safety. While it is not constructed to contain the heat and pressure or direct it away from workers if an arc flash does occur, it is designed to help prevent an incident from happening in the first place.

An Internal Disconnect Shield is ideal for:

  • Applications that require the use of a flange disconnect
  • New systems needing to reduce the risk through the system design
  • Existing systems that need to be retrofitted to reduce risk
  • Applications with limited floor space where an external disconnect solution is not feasible

Key Features:

  • Open back with holes on back flanges for easy mounting on main enclosure sub-panel
  • Wing nuts for top and bottom gland plates for tool-less installation
  • 110-degree door stop to prevent incidental contact
  • Spring-loaded slam latch with 7mm square insert for secure and automatic latching
  • Knock-outs to accommodate variable-depth or cable-operated disconnect switches
  • Symmetrically designed to accommodate either left-hand or right-hand disconnect switches
  • Body construction includes flanges and joints to meet UL Type 1 construction requirements
  • Safety orange paint finish to promote precaution

NEW video from Meltric:
Mining & Aggregate Industry Solutions

MELTRIC’s switch-rated plugs and receptacles are the superior choice for electrical connections in mining and other aggregate facilities . They are safe to make and break under load so qualified workers can quickly de-energize and reconfigure or relocate portable plants. When installed, down-time critical motors can be replaced with plug and play simplicity allowing conveyor lines or portable pumps to be up and running in a matter of minutes instead of hours.

Switch-rated plugs and receptacles are a combination plug, receptacle and disconnect switch in the same device. An integral switch mechanism inside the receptacle safely de-energizes the plug before an operator can withdraw it. Once the plug is removed, a safety shutter shields the operator from live parts, and the plug can be easily locked out. UL & CSA motor circuit and branch circuit disconnect switch-ratings shown on the device-label, allow them to function as the code required ‘line of sight’ disconnect, so the need, space, and expense of a separate non-fused disconnect switch is eliminated.

MELTRIC switch rated plugs and receptacles protect against arc flash and help facilities comply with NFPA 70E or CSA Z462 electrical safety standards . Connection or disconnection of the plug is considered an NFPA 70E defined “Normal Operation” so PPE is not required. Excellent durability and performance in mining and aggregate environments is enabled by the solid silver-nickel, butt-style contacts, which offer superior electrical performance that withstands wear, oxidation and vibration. The contacts mate with a wiping action that cleans the contact surface which helps provide excellent performance in dirty, dusty environments.

To learn more about these and other Meltric plugs and receptacles, use the links below to download a mining and aggregate industry brochure and to visit MELTRIC.com.
