Belden Expands Industrial Ethernet Cable Line With New Bonded-Pair, Shielded Category 6 and Category 5e Cables

RICHMOND, Ind., Sept. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Belden (NYSE:BDC) , a world leader in the development of signal transmission solutions for the industrial, enterprise, building management, broadcast, and security markets, has added three new Bonded-Pair, shielded cables to its DataTuff family of Industrial Ethernet cables.

The new DataTuff Industrial Ethernet cables include:

  • Belden 7953A   an Ethernet/IP-compliant Cat 6 shielded cable (4-pair, 23 AWG) featuring solid bare copper conductor and overall Beldfoil shield. The cable (NEC: CMR, CEC:CMR FT4) has polyolefin insulation, an FRPO inner jacket and a sunlight- and oil-resistance Black PVC outer jacket, rated -40 degrees C to +75 degrees C operating temp.
  • Belden 7939A   a Category 5e shielded cable (4-pair, 24 AWG) featuring stranded bare copper construction and overall Beldfoil shield. The cable (NEC: CMR, CMX - Outdoor, CEC: CMR FT4) has polyolefin insulation and Black or Teal sunlight- and oil-resistant PVC jacket, rated -40 degrees C to +75 degrees C operating temp.
  • Belden 7938A - a Category 5e high flex shielded cable rated for 10 million flexes (4-pair, 24 AWG) features stranded bare copper alloy conductors and overall Beldfoil shield & 85% TC Braid. The cable (AWM 20626) has polyolefin insulation, a TPE inner jacket and a sunlight-, oil-, and weldsplatter-resistant matte black TPE outer jacket.

All cables feature Belden's Bonded-Pair technology, a patented construction that affixes the conductor insulation of the cable pairs along their longitudinal axes to maintain uniform conductor-to-conductor spacing between the pairs to ensure that no performance-robbing gaps can develop. The result is excellent and consistently reliable electrical performance through the rigors of installation and beyond. Belden calls this unique capability Installable Performance .

All Belden DataTuff Industrial Ethernet cables are ruggedly constructed and field proven to effectively withstand the rigors of harsh industrial environments, including exposure to extreme temperatures, UV rays (sunlight), oil, solvents and EMI/RFI radiation.
