WATER-COOLED CABLE JUMPERS: feature a wide variety of terminals designed to meet all required applications.
Water-Cooled Cable Jumpers are available as standard in 300MCM - 350MCM - 400MCM - 500MCM 600MCM - 750MCM and 1000MCM. Other circular mill sizes and or special terminals can be furnished upon request.
Cables feature both extruded copper and cast copper terminals depending on the terminal configuration. A phosphorous bronze spring is centered within the copper conductor rope:
To minimize the possibility of restricted water flow should the cable be subjected to acute bending during operation, and
To act as a filter for broken copper strands and other foreign material to prevent clogged water passages. This spring can be eliminated for special requirements.
The copper conductor ropes are stranded to our specifications for flexibility and long life. XL Stranding is now available for Water-Cooled jumpers. The outer cover is a one braid high quality rubber hose specifically sized for flexibility and terminal diameter. The special stranding plus the special sizing put together a combination resulting in a quality cable jumper.

CAL XL AIR-COOLED JUMPERS: The XL line of cables were first introduced in the US by CAL in the early 1980’s for the more demanding
flex of the newer machines. CAL’s XL Cables are the same as the standard cable except for the special stranding of the rope. The MCM sizes available are from 400 MCM to 1200 MCM excluding 500 MCM. The XL Air-Cooled Jumpers were designed for flexibility. In a high flex job, these cables have been reported to last up to 5 times longer than a standard jumper. Because of the special stranding, and the smaller diameter individual wires in the bunches, we recommend that in a high heat application you move up to a larger MCM size, if possible.
CAL also makes XL cables in Water-Cooled Jumpers and Dual Conductor Cables.
