Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about LAPP ÖLFLEX® SERVO FD zeroCM

What is the zeroCM® technology?

The zeroCM® technology from LAPP employs a special stranding technique that eliminates magnetic couplings and reduces capacitive couplings to a minimum. Using this cable results in a significant reduction of low- and high-frequency leakage currents at the frequency converter as well as within the system environment. Capacitance optimization leads to a reduction in cable charge currents when using power electronics.

The cable-conducted emitted interference of active components can generally be reduced by longer cable installation lengths. The electromagnetically symmetrical structure of zeroCM® cables ensures that the reference potential remains free from interference even for high power levels and long cable lengths. The grounding concept is formed from the cross-section of the protective conductor and the defined cross-section of the shielding braid.

Can I use ÖLFLEX® SERVO FD zeroCM outdoors?
