Courtesy: Alpha WireAlpha Wire has added Industrial Ethernet to its growing family of Xtra-Guard 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 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 ft and 1000 ft. Other colors, including red and teal, are available as special orders.
