Communication and
control are critical to any
electronic system. Whether
its the monitoring and
control of a wind turbine,
communication between drive
and motor on the factory floor,
or interconnections of CAD
systems in an
engineering
department,
the proper
communication
and control
cable is
critical to maintaining high
signal integrity.
The broad range of
communication and control
cables from Alpha Wire means
you can find the right cable for
your application. Our cables
meet special needs, such as low-
capacitance cables for extended
transmission of digital signals,
such as the extra flexibility of
rubber insulation and jackets,
or excellent shielding for
electrically noisy environments.
We combine a wide range of
insulation materials, shielding
variations, conductor counts and
gauges, as well as other options
to create cables suited to any
application. From traditional
RS-232 connections to high-
speed telemetry and data
recording to
high-fidelity
microphone
systems, our
experience
in materials and expertise in
manufacturing means cable
built to perform electrically,
mechanically, and environmen-
tally. We know that a cable
is not simply a cable: it is the
conduit over which your critical
signals pass.
Our communication and
control line includes three
main categories:
Industrial series cable:
factory-tough cable
configured for standard
factory needs, such as drive
interconnections, conveyors,
or automation networks
Communication and control:
round multiconductor
and multipair cable in
configurations suited to
nearly any application
Flat cable: planar
multiconductor cable
used primarily inside
cabinets or equipment

abrasion resistant
Irradiated PVC: better resistance to soldering than standard PVC
Semirigid PVC: better physical properties, such as abrasion resistance, than standard PVC
Rubber: extremely flexible for applications such as portable cordage
Polyethylene: better electrical properties and less flexibility than PVC; excellent water
resistance for outdoor and direct burial
Polypropylene: better electrical properties and less flexibility than PVC
Foam PP and PE: used as an insulation to achieve mid- and low-capacitance cable to allow
longer transmission distances with excellent signal integrity
Teflon® PTFE/FEP: premium material with excellent high temperature range, electrical
properties, and chemical resistance
Plenum-rated PVC: for use in plenum spaces
Shielding Options
Unshielded: used where noise is not an issue
Overall foil shield: used for moderate EMI levels; good high-frequency shielding
Overall foil/braid: excellent performance for high EMI levels
Individual foil-shielded pairs: offer both crosstalk protection and moderate
EMI performance
Individual foil-shielded pairs with overall foil/braid: crosstalk protection and excellent
EMI protection

second-to-none
Selecting the correct cable
for your critical application is
essential to overall system
reliability, performance, and
safety. So we make it easy
for you select the right
Alpha cable for your specific
application. Our online
resources include a wire and
cable selection guide, technical
information, full product
catalog, and a distributor
locator to make it easy to
select and get the cable you
need. Can’t find what you’re

Communication and
control are critical to any
electronic system. Whether
its the monitoring and
control of a wind turbine,
communication between drive
and motor on the factory floor,
or interconnections of CAD
systems in an
engineering
department,
the proper
communication
and control
cable is
critical to maintaining high
signal integrity.
The broad range of
communication and control
cables from Alpha Wire means
you can find the right cable for
your application. Our cables
meet special needs, such as low-
capacitance cables for extended
transmission of digital signals,
such as the extra flexibility of
rubber insulation and jackets,
or excellent shielding for
electrically noisy environments.
We combine a wide range of
insulation materials, shielding
variations, conductor counts and
gauges, as well as other options
to create cables suited to any
application. From traditional
RS-232 connections to high-
speed telemetry and data
recording to
high-fidelity
microphone
systems, our
experience
in materials and expertise in
manufacturing means cable
built to perform electrically,
mechanically, and environmen-
tally. We know that a cable
is not simply a cable: it is the
conduit over which your critical
signals pass.
Our communication and
control line includes three
main categories:
Industrial series cable:
factory-tough cable
configured for standard
factory needs, such as drive
interconnections, conveyors,
or automation networks
Communication and control:
round multiconductor
and multipair cable in
configurations suited to
nearly any application
Flat cable: planar
multiconductor cable
used primarily inside
cabinets or equipment
Get control of
demanding applications
