PVC Thermocouple Extension Cable 5-20

PVC Thermocouple Extension Cable

Individual and Overall Shield

PVC twisted individual and overall shielded thermocouple cable is ideal for systems sensitive to induced voltage and electrical noise. The twisting of the conductor and the Aluminium/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 Aluminium 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 and meets NEC Article 725 Class I, Division 2, hazardous locations and NEC 725 for use in Class and Class 3 Circuits.
