Foil Shielded Electronic CablesFoil shielding used a thin layer of aluminum, typically attached to a carrier such as polyester to add strength and ruggedness. It provides 100% coverage of the conductors it surrounds. A foil shield also protects the inner wire from the effects of electromagnetic interference (EMI). Shielding reduces electrical noise and reduces its impact on signals, while lowering electromagnetic radiation. Shielding can also prevent crosstalk between cables near each other. Additionally, electronic cable shielding not only protects cable, but it also provides protection for machinery and people as well.
Furthermore, shielded electronic cables are usually thicker and more rigid than unshielded cables. They also require greater care when working with them. Shielded cables are most often found in industrial settings and installations where other nearby equipment is likely to generate electromagnetic interference (EMI).
Foil Shielded Electronic Cable ApplicationsManey’s foil shielded electronic cables are used for numerous types of industrial applications where protection from EMI is necessary, these include:
- Data transmission
- Recording studios
- Broadcast sound systems
- Electronic & control circuits
- And more
Non-Shielded Electronic CablesManey’s non-shielded electronic cables do not have internal shielding to reduce EMI. Instead, they are designed to cancel electromagnetic interference through the way in which the pairs are twisted inside the cable. They are also less expensive than industrial cables. However, they are not always a good fit for industrial settings where larger amounts of power are needed, or where heavy equipment will be in regular use.
Non-Shielded Electronic Cable ApplicationsDue to the design and nature of non-shielded electronic cables they are ideal for applications, such as:
- Office LANS
- Network cabling systems
- PA systems
- Unbalanced intercom systems
- Remote control circuits
- And more
