Belden releases new continuous flex Ethernet cables

Belden announced two new additions to its line of DataTuff Industrial Ethernet cables for industrial data networks and plant floor control.

Richmond, IN – Belden, a developer of signal transmission products for the industrial, building management, enterprise, broadcast, and security markets, announced two new additions to its line of DataTuff Industrial Ethernet cables for industrial data networks and plant floor control.  Belden Category 5e DataTuff shielded twisted pair continuous flex cable – Product No SI7938A – is rated for use in continuous motion machinery, such as C-Track and festoon systems, as well as robotics frequently used in discrete manufacturing and automated assembly lines.  Belden Category 5e DataTuff shielded twistedpair cable – Product No 7939A – features a flexible, stranded and shielded construction to resist machine and plant floor vibration, along with superior noise immunity.
Belden developed the Continuous Flex cable to fulfill a need in the industrial marketplace for a high-performance cable capable of withstanding the stresses caused over time by continuous flexing in mission-critical applications, without damage to the cable or degradation of its Cat 5e electrical performance.
Belden Cat 5e DataTuff Continuous Flex cable features a stranded alloy copper conductor.
Belden’s new Cat 5e DataTuff Shielded Twisted Pair cable– #7939A – features a flexible stranded and shielded construction that increases the cable’s ability to withstand machine and plant floor vibrations and effectively resist the high levels of electrical noise (EMI/RFI) that can occur when cables come in close proximity to power lines, transformers or electrically-powered equipment. The 4-pair Cat 5e Shielded cables feature stranded conductors, an overall Beldfoil shield, and dual heavy-duty, industrial-grade PVC jackets to provide superior oil- and sunlight-resistance.   
Both of the new Cat 5e Industrial Ethernet cables feature Belden’s Bonded-Pair technology, a patented design that bonds the individual insulated conductors of each pair along the full length of the cable.
