Control Components: Belden's DataTuff TC Cat 5e Cord Sets, comprised of UL 1277-rated industrial Ethernet cable and RJ45 connectors, can be easily deployed in pre-existing 600 V cable trays for cost-effective and speedy installation. This is a Control EngBelden's DataTuff TC Cat 5e Cord Sets with UL1277-rated industrial Ethernet cable address a long-standing challenge-the ability to easily route industrial Ethernet cables in the most demanding, heavy-industrial environments using existing 600 V cable trays. These cord sets reduce the cost of installation and decrease the risk of field failure, with the attendant costs of operational downtime and potential safety issues.

In order to route industrial Ethernet cables in existing 600 V cable trays, Belden's cable product team had to do some breakthrough engineering work. This included developing 18 AWG conductors, a wider diameter than the usual Ethernet specification 22 to 26 AWG conductors (in the AWG system, a lower number means a higher wire diameter).

The big conductors, along with the following hardy characteristics, deliver the functionality necessary to meet the Category 5e Ethernet and 600 V listing requirements:

  • A thick thermoplastic jacket
  • A foil and braid shield for high EMI/RFI immunity
  • Oil resistant and sunlight resistant
  • Temperature tolerance from -40 to 90 C
  • Flame retardant
  • Resistance to penetration by objects of >12 mm
  • Belden's patented Bonded-Pair technology, which eliminates gaps between conductor pairs for excellent and reliable electrical performance.

The cables are approved for mining applications and have achieved many other certifications that are listed in the DataTuff TC Cat 5e Cord Sets' product bulletin.

The cables come with connectors designed to work with heavier-gauge connectors, and that provide easy transition from the cable tray to equipment. The cable and connector sets are factory tested to delivery consistent performance. The result is that the new cord sets can be easily deployed in pre-existing 600 V cable trays, for cost-effective and speedy installation.
