TME assortment includes a wide range of BELDEN cables, as well as numerous items under different brands associated with the company. For easier navigation, we present to you an extensive introduction, with focus on communication cables and connectors.
Ethernet cables from BELDEN type UTP/FTP with four or eight cores were designed for industrial architecture. They are UV-resistant and protected against environmental conditions, the majority of oils, solvents, and chemical agents (or only some of these factors – see detailed information regarding a particular product). What is more, TME's offer also includes CAT 7 cables: double-shielded with aluminum foil and copper wire, i.e. with an additional electromagnetic insulation for each pair of signal wires. The majority of twisted-pair cables offered by BELDEN is available in two versions: with solid wires or multicore strands (for increased flexibility).
Installers and maintenance operators of industrial installations will appreciate innovative solutions applied in communication cables from BELDEN. For instance, the 3105A cable designed for the RS-485 interface is a great example of durability guaranteed by this manufacturer. Its insulation was made with the use of Datalene® technology developed by BELDEN, using a high density polyethylene. Wire shielding is based on a proprietary solution developed by the manufacturer. With Beldfoil®, wires are covered in a overall shield of aluminum/polyester foil that protects data transfer, and additionally isolates separate cores, also from electrostatic factors. It allows for the manufacturing of cables with small diameter, which are more durable and more flexible.
