Is Buying Tri-Rated Cable Giving You The Blues?

LAPP has introduced ÖLFLEX® UNIPLUS TRI, a new addition to the company’s offering of industrial control products. Manufactured to the same high standards as the whole LAPP ÖLFLEX® range, this new product meets the market’s demands while still ensuring LAPP’s unrivaled quality and reliability. By launching this product, LAPP is not reinventing the wheel or making flashy alloys. Instead, the German manufacturer is putting over 50 years of experience and expertise into the popular tri-rated cable range, bringing it under the renowned ÖLFLEX® brand umbrella.

Lapp Tri-Rated Cable

Founded in 1957, ÖLFLEX® was the very first brand LAPP introduced to the market — and the rest is history. To this day, the brand is synonymous with quality, reliability and continual supply from one factory.

As a widely used commodity product, tri-rated cables are manufactured in a variety of colours. However, often there is no consistency in the colour palette used for the outer sheath meaning nuances can vary significantly from manufacturer to manufacturer and from one batch to the other. Installing cables with different colours can cause severe delays to the whole installation and overall the lack of colour standardisation makes life hard for both the buyer and the installer. Thanks to the accurate RAL numbering of all the LAPP ÖLFLEX® UNIPLUS Tri-rated cables, customers can be assured that when they order the cable in dark blue, in a year it will still be the same shade. This provides peace of mind for the buyer and the installer, it can shorten installation times and ultimately help reduce costs.

LAPP’s ÖLFLEX® UNIPLUS TRI cable is a high quality switchgear cable available at an affordable price. It offers all the attributes of a standard Tri-rated cable: it has UL, CSA and British Standard approvals, and it is also CPR tested to Eca class. This triple certification allows the cable to be used in both the European and North American markets, making the tri-rated a highly sought after product. Its applications include electrical cabinets, switch controls, relay and instrumentation panels of power switchgear. It can also be installed in small electrical devices and therefore can be utilised in most industries and sectors.

Tri-rated is a single core, flexible cable with PVC insulation and is approved to BS6231 cable rating among many other approvals. It is available off the shelf in 14 colours and sizes that range from 0.5 mm² to 16 mm². Larger sizes such as 25 mm² and up to 240 mm² are also available on request.
