Cables Relish Extreme Environments

The XTRA•GUARD cables are designed to perform and maintain system reliability in the most extreme environments including heat, cold, abrasion, flexing, immersion in oils, chemicals, solvents, and fuels, UV exposure, EMI/RFI interference, and direct burial. Hazard-matched, the product line consists of nearly 5,000 standard configurations. The XTRA•GUARD 1 targets signal and control applications while XTRA•GUARD 2 handles heavy-duty industrial environments requiring resistance to abrasion. Number 3 sets up in outdoor and direct burial applications, number 4 is for both high and low temperatures, and number 5 provides extreme performance in unusually demanding environments. Additionally, XTRA•GUARD flexible cables perform in both single- and multi-axis motion environments and feature 1- to 14-million flex life cycles. The line also includes control, torsion, and continuous-flex data/control cables. ALPHA WIRE CO., Elizabeth, NJ. (800) 522-5742.
