HellermannTyton has recently announced the expansion of its UV-resistant product range. Here, we take a look at some of the portfolio’s leading lights.
With more electricians working on renewable energy installations such as air source heat pumps, solar photovoltaic panels and solar thermal, HellermannTyton has identified the need for better cable management and identification solutions.
Featured as part of the newly launched HellermannTyton catalogue, the range includes the following innovations:
Loop Cable Markers
A first for the cable marking industry, the UV-resistant loop cable markers do not require cable ties, saving customers a significant amount of time and money as well as minimising plastic waste.
Up to this point much of the industry only offered cable marking solutions with cable ties for the sole use of pre-assembly, whereas HellermannTyton’s new loop cable markers can be used for post-assembly and have a recess built-in to enable the use of cable ties if desired.
As part of HellermannTyton’s expansion into the renewables industry, the loop cable markers are specifically designed for applications where cables are continuously exposed to UV light such as within solar plants, or for use with air source heat pumps.
They’re also suitable for any indoor or outdoor applications requiring identification including maintenance, assembly, test and inspection, electrical, mechanical engineering, and panel building.
This enhanced UV-resistant conduit is used to route and protect wiring externally – from solar installations to PV power plants.
The FCT UV is manufactured using UV stabilised PA6 Nylon in black, designed with the highest UV resistance capabilities and has a minimum of 25 years of UV protection in northern hemisphere conditions. Created halogen-free, the product is lightweight and flexible, intended to protect cables from external exposure and crush damage.
Heavy Duty Spiral Binding
As well as UV-resistant products, HellermannTyton also develops solutions to support the efficiency and durability of the heavy-duty systems found in wind turbines. Most recently, it has launched a heavy-duty, high-performance spiral binding range to protect and prevent damage to cables and hydraulic hoses.
With mechanical abrasion and crush strength resistant properties, the spiral binding can extend operational lifespan and significantly reduce maintenance costs by offering protection against the extreme weather conditions of offshore wind turbines to help prevent cable friction and torsion.
A catalogue of solutions
HellermannTyton has just launched its new catalogue, which showcases the entire product range, including Fastening and Fixings, Identification, Electrical, Installation & Protection and Application Tooling. Electricians can use the catalogue’s QR Codes and digital wish lists to save items or find out find out more about their favourite products.
