Northwire Expands DataCELL Field Cable Line
Expanded DataCELL Field cables.
Osceola, WI — Northwire, Inc. has expanded its DataCELL Field rugged cable product line to include a CC-Link, high-flex-life mid ODVA DeviceNet as well as new nominal 100aΩ and 80Ω Foundation fieldbus® cables. The CC-Link cables are available as standard network cable and network cable with a power pair. The cables are constructed to comply with CC-Link-dedicated cable specifications (Ver. 1.10). They are conformance tested and passed by CLPA (CC-Link Partner Association), UL-listed PLTC, CSA-approved CMX-Outdoor-CMG. Available with the industry standard red outer jacket or in other colors, the cable is fully shielded with a 65 percent tinned copper braid and inner 100 percent foil shield with drain.

The high-flex-life DeviceNet cables are for discrete factory automation and control. They have been tested to survive more than 10 million cycles on the company's flex testing equipment. Other ODVA DeviceNet cables from Northwire include ODVA-compliant thick (600V-rated); thin (300V-rated); and special PLTC (Power Limited Tray Cable) thin, designed with 22 AWG data pair and PLTC-rated. High-flex-life cables are available in standard and custom colors, and have a TPE jacket that is resistant to abrasion, oil, light and water. This cable is an excellent choice for installation in cable tracks.

The expanded fieldbus cable line includes new versions with controlled electrical characteristics — now a choice of nominal 100Ω or 80Ω; new 16 AWG versions; and multipair versions including 1, 2, 4, 8, 10 and 12-pair cables in 18 and 16 AWG.
