Belden Classic multi-conductor and paired cables deliver low voltage analog data and signal transmission within enclosures, from controllers and I/Os to devices like temperature and pressure sensors, relays,valves, meters, thermocouples, solenoids, actuators, contactors, push buttons and alarms. Belden Classics also are top performers for computers, communications, instrumentation, sound, control, audio, data transmission and many more applications.

Paired designs allow balanced signal transmission, resulting in lower crosstalk through common-mode rejection. In fact, RS-232 studies proved that even at full utilization with crosstalk, Belden Classic cables functioned at remarkable distances – at least 400 ft. to 833 ft. — compared to the normal transmission distance of 65 ft. In addition, due to the improved noise immunity of twisted pairs, Belden Classic cables generally permit higher data speeds than multi-conductor cables.

Belden offers one of the broadest lines of UL Listed, NEC and CEC multi-conductor cables available from any single source. Produced at Belden’s ISO-certified, state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, Belden Classic cables are available in a broad range of gauge (AWG) sizes, insulation materials and jacketing materials, including plenum and high-temperature versions. In addition, Belden offers effective shielding technology with innovative EMI/RFI protective foil and braid designs like patented Beldfoil, an aluminum/polyester foil construction that ensures 100 percent coverage.

For outstanding performance – including ease of termination and assembly in the field – count on a classic: Belden Classic cables. Talk to your Graybar representative or call 1-800-GRAYBAR.
