Low-capacitance data cables

High-quality, low-capacitance data cables have impedances specific for RS-232/422 and RS-485 communication applications. The 24-awg tinned copper conductors are made as twisted pairs to reduce electrical noise sensitivity and come in one, two, or three-pair color-coded constructions. Polyethylene conductor insulation provides high insulation resistance and a rugged gray PVC jacket makes it durable enough for use in demanding industrial applications.

The cables are protection from radiated or conducted electromagnetic interference by combination shields consisting of an overall foil shield layer with drain wire and a woven braid shield layer. Cables are available in 100-ft coils and 500 or 1,000-ft rolls.
