Alpha Wire has added Industrial Ethernet to its growing family of Xtra-Guard high-performance cables. The Cat 5e cables combine the advanced technology of Ethernet communication with the durability and temperature range of Alpha’s renowned Xtra-Guard 4 jacket, making it a perfect solution for demanding applications.
“The idea to use our Xtra-Guard 4 jacket on an Industrial Ethernet cable came from customers who needed a flexible and routable Ethernet cable that could withstand extreme environments,” said Tim Howlett, Senior Product Manager for Alpha Wire. “We decided to take it a notch further by offering 0 minimums on this line with put-ups as small as 100 feet.”
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 constructions and -50°C up to +105°C on Polyethylene-insulated constructions. The TPE jacket is available in black with standard lengths of 100, 1000, and 2000 feet. Other colors, including red and teal, are available as special orders.
