PVC Copper Instrumentation Cable 6-20

PVC Copper Instrumentation Cable

Individual and 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. XLPE, TPE and LSZH 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, jackets and armors can be mixed and matched to custom design a cable for specific application.

PVC twisted individual and 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 and shielded with individual tin/copper drain wire. Next, an Aluminum Mylar tape is wrapped around the wires with a tin/copper drain wire, followed by a final layer of overall PVC jacket. The wire is UL listed for Power Limited Tray Cable (PLTC) 300V applications.
