Alpha Wire Adds Industrial Ethernet Cable to Xtra-Guard® Family

Alpha Wire has added Industrial Ethernet to its growing family of Xtra-Guard high-performance cables. The new Cat 5e cables enable Ethernet communications with the durability and temperature range of Alpha’s renowned Xtra-Guard 4 jacket, making it a perfect solution for demanding applications.

“The idea to use our Xtra-Guard 4 jacket on an Industrial Ethernet cable came from customers who needed a flexible and routable Ethernet cable that could withstand extreme environments,” said Tim Howlett, Director of Marketing for Alpha Wire. “We decided to take it a notch further by offering zero minimums on this line, with put-ups as small as 500 feet.”

The new Industrial Ethernet cables are available in a choice of unshielded, foil shield, or Supra-Shield® foil/braid. Alpha Wire’s Supra-Shield uses a combination aluminum/polyester/aluminum foil and tinned copper braid that offers exceptional EMI performance and flexibility. Additionally, the cables are UV and fluid resistant, meet UL 1666 Riser and CSA FT-4 flame tests, and are suitable for use in NFPA 79 applications.

This connectivity cable is available in a temperature range of -50°C up to +125°C on FEP-insulated conductors and -50°C up to +105°C on polyethylene-insulated conductors. The TPE jacket is available in black with standard lengths of 500 and 1000 feet. Other colors, including red and teal, are available as special orders.http://www.electricaldigest.co.uk/administrator/index.php?option=com_content
