What is cable hire?
Cable hire is the rental of power cable for three phase or single phase power distribution installations. In the electrical industry, the term dry cable hire refers to lease of power equipment that is provided without any additional operators or assistance. For instance, Phase 3 will assemble made-up H07RN-F leads and arrange the delivery of your electrical equipment. However, Phase 3 are not present for onsite installation or to undergo maintenance and safety checks. Above all, Phase 3’s service operates according to your requirements with flexible rolling agreements.
What power cable can you rent?
Customers can only rent the highest quality single core power cable, therefore Phase 3 have purchased a range of Nexans TITANEX® H07RN-F copper trailing cable. TITANEX® is currently available for lease in 120mm2 and 240mm2 sizes and is widely considered as the most reliable industry offering. The TITANEX® outer sheath is polychloroprene (PCP). Most of our customers operate in low voltage power distribution environments using flexible mains cable, therefore require current ratings between 300 amps and 600 amps. For example, ethylene propylene rubber leads are suitable for applications such as: heavy duty handling equipment, mobile generators, construction sites, stage and audio visual equipment, maritime and public service buildings.
Phase 3’s high quality H07RN-F cable is available in bespoke length runs, however standard orders are 1 meter tails and 25 meter runs. H07 heavy duty electrical leads Generator tails are cut to 1 meter lengths with lug-to-source or lug-to-drain terminations. Finally, all other powerlock cable is terminated with Powersafe single pole connectors as source to drain.
A ‘set’ includes 5 lines for each of the three Power phases plus Earth and Neutral. 240mm2 power cable lines are crimp terminated with 800 amp single pole connectors and M12 Lugs. 120mm2 power cable lines are set-screw terminated with 500 amp single pole connectors and M12 Lugs.
