PVC Copper Instrumentation Cable 6-10

PVC Copper Instrumentation Cable

Overall Shield

TE Wire & Cable Copper Instrumentation Cables are designed for use in NEC Article 725 Class 1 Division 2 Hazardous Location and comply with NEC 725 for use in Class 2 and Class 2 Circuits. TPE insulation option available.  Cables with up to 50 pairs and continuous lengths of 5000-10,000 FT are possible. TE Wire & Cable conductor sizes, insulations, and jackets can be mixed and matched to custom design a cable for a specific application.

PVC twisted/overall shielded instrumentation cable is ideal for systems sensitive to induced voltage and electrical noise. The twisting of the conductor and the Aluminum/polyester taper shield provides protection against cross talk, static and magnetic noise in instrumentation circuits. Conductors are insulated with color-coded PVC, then twisted with a tin/copper drain wire. Next, an Aluminum Mylar tape is wrapped around the wires, followed by a final layer of overall PVC jacket. The cable is UL listed Subject 13 for Power Limited Tray Cable (PLTC) 300V applications.
