Belden is a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications.
The Category 5e 600V AWM-rated cables incorporate Belden's patented Bonded-Pair technology and are designed for use in listed motor control centres and switchgear in tough EMI environments.
DataTuff 4-pair shielded cables are ruggedly constructed to offer superior performance, reliability and noise immunity. Both cables are Ethernet/IP compliant.
The designated shielded designs of Belden industrial Ethernet cables provide assured performance in highly concentrated EMI environments.
Cable 7958A has an overall Beldfoil shield to meet the EMI requirements of most plant environments while Cable 7957A has an overall Beldfoil shield in addition to 70% tinned copper braid for performance and structural integrity in more extreme EMI environments.
The AWM rating allows the cables to be used on or within a listed cabinet or machine as well as more traditional Ethernet applications. They are not intended for 600V power delivery.
Belden's new DataTuff Category 5e industrial Ethernet cables come in a shielded design and feature:
- 24 AWG Bonded-Pair solid bare copper conductors
- Polyolefin insulation
- 24 AWG stranded tinned copper drain wire
- Industrial-grade oil- and sunlight-resistant PVC jacket
Belden's patented Bonded-Pair technology contributes to the industrial Ethernet cables' superior stability and electrical performance.
In Bonded-Pair cables, the conductor insulations of each of the cable pairs are affixed to each other along their longitudinal axes to ensure no performance robbing gaps between conductors can occur.
Referred to as the Installable Performance capability, the technology ensures that uniform and consistent conductor-to-conductor spacing is maintained before, during and after installation or during its use on the factory floor.
