Ethernet Shielded Cables

Nov. 22, 2010
Belden, a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has added two 600V AWM-rated, shielded cables to its DataTuff Industrial Ethernet line.

The Category 5e 600V AWM-rated cables incorporate Belden's patented Bonded-Pair technology and are designed to be suitable for use in listed motor control centers (MCC) and switch gear in tough EMI environments.

Both DataTuff 4-pair shielded cables feature an exceptionally rugged construction to answer the need for superior performance, reliability and noise immunity. The AWM rating allows the cables to be used on or within a listed cabinet or machine, as well as, more traditional Ethernet applications. They are not, however, intended for 600V power delivery.

Belden's new DataTuff Category 5e Industrial Ethernet cables feature an overall shielded design with 24 AWG Bonded-Pair solid bare copper conductors, polyolefin insulation, a 24 AWG stranded tinned copper drain wire, and an industrial-grade oil- and sunlight-resistant PVC jacket.

Belden has designated shielded designs to provide assured performance in highly concentrated EMI environments. Belden Part No. 7958A has an overall Beldfoil® shield to meet the EMI requirements of most plant environments. Part No. 7957A has an overall Beldfoil shield + 70% tinned copper braid for more extreme EMI environments and enhanced structural integrity. Both cables are Ethernet/IP compliant.

Belden's patented Bonded-Pair technology contributes to the Industrial Ethernet cables' superior stability and electrical performance. In Bonded-Pair cables, the conductor insulations of each of the cable pairs are affixed to each other along their longitudinal axes to ensure that no performance robbing gaps between conductors can occur. This means that uniform and consistent conductor-to-conductor spacing - or concentricity - is maintained, before, during and after the rigors of installation and during its use on the factory floor. Belden calls this unique capability Installable Performance®.
