The new small‐gauge cables are available with a variety of conductors and twisted pairs options. Shielding options include unshielded, foil, and Supra‐Shield foil and braid. Supra‐Shield is Alpha’s proprietary high‐performance shielding consisting of a trilaminate foil and tinned copper braid to achieve exceptional EMC performance.
“The Xtra‐Guard family is well known in the industry for its ruggedness and high performance in demanding applications,” says Harry Quinn, European director at Alpha Wire. “By extending the line to 26 and 28 gauge, we are giving our customers even more choice in meeting critical design and application requirements—and especially in applications where the need for smaller cables and increased flexibility doesn’t allow any compromise in performance.”
