Ravin Launches ‘Theft-free’ Cable
Ravin Group, a major Indian cable manufacturer, launched a ‘Theft-free’ cable at ELECRAMA 2023. Ravin’s ‘Theft-free cable’ features a single cable which offers a three-wire system. In this concentric-core cable, neutral and earthing function is fulfilled by the conductor immediately under the outermost jacket, while the conductor at the core would carry the live current. This approach to cable construction seeks to minimise instances of electricity theft. The maximum voltage rating of this cable is 600/1000 Volt.
Speaking to CableCommunity, Mr. Pratham Karia, Director – Sales & Marketing, Ravin Group, said, “The next two to three decades will see the rise of Electric Vehicles. Therefore, there will be a rise in the consumption of electricity”. He added that Ravin seeks to contribute to the expected expansion of the Indian power sector in the coming years.
