EXRAD® XLE 150 SAE Shielded Battery Cable

    Product features:
  • Very Flexible
  • Oil Resistant

EXRAD® XLE 600/1000 volt shielded cable is designed specifically to handle the higher voltage and current required by today’s hybrid and electric powered vehicles. XLE is an extremely flexible, yet tough insulation cable. These cables significantly reduce the effects of EMI and RFI. The jacket insulation isolates any stray currents making this cable very safe. Our thin wall and high temperature insulations allow for lower weight and less space.

EXRAD XLE 600/1000 volt shielded cable has an irradiated cross-linked elastomer insulation able to withstand temperatures of 240°C and higher. Thinner and lighter than other shielded battery cables, it is flexible enough for easy routing yet tough enough to withstand the roughest environments. XLE has excellent resistance to oil at temperatures exceeding 105°C.

The end result is an automotive wire ideally suited to applications where a combination of flexibility, long life and performance is required. EXRAD XLE 600/1000 volt shielded cable can be routed through twists and turns where other cables fail.
