PVC Twisted Shielded 1 Pair

PVC Twisted Shielded 1 Pair

PVC twisted/shielded thermocouple cable is ideal for systems sensitive to induced voltage and electrical noise. The twisting of the conductor and the Aluminum Mylar shield provides protection against cross talk, static and magnetic noise in instrumentation circuits. The wire conductors are insulated with color-coded PVC, and 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 wire is UL listed for Power Limited Tray Cable (PLTC) 300V applications and meets NEC Article 725 Class I, Division 2, hazardous locations.
