Cables are available in 1, 2, 4, or 8 twisted pairs with an overall aluminum/polyester foil shield for 100-percent coverage, and a tinned copper continuous drain wire for protection against external electrical noise interference. Cables are also available with 2, 4, or 8 individually shielded twisted pairs feature separate tinned copper continuous drain wires for maximum effectiveness against both external electrical noise interference and crosstalk between pairs.
Individual conductor pairs are stranded bare copper with black-and-white premium grade PVC insulation, and are marked with alpha-numeric print for easy identification. The cable’s outer jacket is a black premium grade PVC that is sunlight- and moisture-resistant. A convenient 22AWG orange PVC insulated communications conductor is included on multi-pair cables.
The cables can also be used for Class 2 and Class 3 remote-control, signaling, and power-limited circuits; additionally, these cables are permitted for use in hazardous locations.
