Product Details

Overall Foil-screened Multi-conductor

From RS Pro, this multi-conductor and drain wire cable is ideal for data applications. With an overall foil screen and tinned copper wire, the cable ensures effective grounding, keeping unwanted electrical noise away from the circuit. These advantages mean this foil screened cable can be used confidentially in 232 applications, as well as for computer interconnection.

The cores are insulated with PVC and wrapped in an aluminsied polyester tape, encased in a PVC outer sheath.

Features and Benefits

• Overall Foil Screen
• Tinned Copper Conductors
• 300V Voltage Rating
• Max Conductor DC Resistance @20°C: 95.8 Capacitance (PF/M)
• Attenuation: 6dB/100m@1MHz
• Max Temperature Rating: +80°C


Foil-screened data cable is used in the internal wiring of electronic equipment where high speed data transmission is a plus. The foil shielding also means the cable can stand up to high-frequency RFI applications. Typical applications include;

• Computer Wiring
• Point of Sale Equipment
• Process and Control
• Data Transmission

What are the Advantages of Foil Shielding?

Foil shielding is cheap and light-weight, and often used as a cheaper alternative to braided cables when it comes to EMI and RFI suitability, as well as offering complete shielding coverage. It also offers more space-saving options with lower cable diameters for use in smaller devices.

Unfortunately, foil shielding it is not as durable as braided shielding, and is not suitable to high-flex applications.
