Quabbin multiconductor cable with twisted triads has been added to the current offering of instrumentation cable from AutomationDirect (Cumming, GA). These 300V UL cables with 18 or 20 AWG wire sizes are offered as 1, 2, 4 or 8 overall shielded triads, or individually shielded 2, 4 or 8-twisted triads 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 separate tinned copper continuous drain wires.
Individual conductor triads are stranded bare copper with black, white and red PVC insulation; the black PVC outer jacket is sunlight and moisture resistant.
