Cables extend temperature range capabilities

Belden Infinity’s C-TC+ and FCC continuous flex cables provide superior flexing.

St. Louis, Mo., November 12, 2010—Belden (NYSE: BDC) has announced a series of enhancements to its Belden Infinity C-TC+ and FCC Cables. With the addition of Belden high-performance Belflex jackets, these cables are cited to offer superior flexing capabilities; resistance to sunlight, oil and abrasion; and the ability to withstand temperature ranges of -40C to +90C (cold impact) and -50C to +90C (cold bend).

Applicable for use in C-track systems, robots, automated assembly systems, material handling systems, multi-axis machine tools, wind turbines and the like, “Continuous Flex’ Belden Infinity C-TC+ and FCC Cables offer compliance with the following ratings: 600V TC-ER (18 AWG and larger), 300V UL PLTC-ER (20 AWG), 1000V WTTC (18 AWG and larger), UL MTW and AWM, and 1000V CSA AWM I/II A/B FT4. They are also UL approved for direct burial and suitable for Class I and II Div. 2 installation in hazardous locations. The cables meet the requirements of NFPA 79 for industrial machinery, and they are CE and RoHS compliant.

Belden Infinity C-TC+ Cables are suitable for extreme flexing applications in severe environments, delivering optimal performance at 10 million flex cycles. Belden has used specialized manufacturing techniques to nearly eradicate cable memory, while the cable’s conductor design eliminates torque and makes the cable less susceptible to fatigue.

Belden Infinity FCC Cables are a cost-effective alternative to C-TC+ Cables and are suitable for moderate flexing operations of 1 million flex cycles. Like C-TC+ cables, they are manufactured and designed to exhibit superior flex life and durability.
