AutomationDirect adds Instrumentation Cable

Cumming, GA --- April 9, 2015 ... AutomationDirect offers 300V UL instrumentation cable available with 18AWG conductors in 1, 2, 4, or 8 twisted pairs with an overall shield or in 2, 4, or 8 individually shielded twisted pairs with an overall shield. The overall shielded cables have an aluminum/polyester foil shield with 100% coverage and a tinned copper continuous drain wire for protection against external electrical noise interference. Cables with both individually shielded pairs and an overall shield have aluminum/polyester foil shields with 100% coverage complete with separate tinned copper continuous drain wires for maximum effectiveness against both external electrical noise interference and crosstalk between pairs. Individual conductor pairs are stranded bare copper with black and white premium grade PVC insulation and marked with alpha-numeric print for easy identification. The cable's outer jacket is a black premium grade PVC that is sunlight and moisture resistant. A convenient 22AWG orange PVC insulated communications conductor is included on multi-pair cables.

Dual listed as UL 2250 Type ITC (Instrumentation Tray Cables) and UL 13 Type PLTC (Power Limited Tray Cables), this instrumentation cable can be used for instrumentation and control circuits operating at 150 volts or less and 5 amperes or less. The cable can also be used for Class 2 and Class 3 remote-control, signaling, and power-limited circuits; additionally, these cables are permitted for use in hazardous locations.

These instrumentation cables are made in the USA and are available in 100 foot, 250 foot, or 1000 foot reels starting at $32.
