FEP Fluoropolymer Thermocouple Extension Cable 5-60

FEP Fluoropolymer Thermocouple Extension Cable

Individual and Overall Shield

FEP twisted individual and overall shielded thermocouple cable is ideal for applications where the environment ambient temperatures can spike over the limit of conventional PVC cables. 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 FEP, 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 FEP jacket. The cable can be supplied in a UL listed design CL2, CL3, PLTC or ITC.
