Xtra-Guard ® 1 PVC Cable
A high-performance workhorse cable featuring tough PVC insulation and jackets, Xtra-Guard 1 cable offers stranded conductors for flexibility and a choice of shielding options. It’s ideal for control, monitoring, and light-duty power.
Available in over 500 standard constructions, Xtra-Guard 1 is offered in a variety of jacket colors, including white.
Xtra-Guard ® Flexible Cable
Rated for up to 14 million flex cycles, Xtra-Guard Flex cable provides excellent performance in high-flex, high torsion, and continuous-flex applications, such as motion control and robotics. These long-lasting cables offer excellent oil and UV resistance, and when paired with Supra-Shield provide precise EMI interference resistance.
Xtra-Guard Performance Cable
Hazard-matched to survive in the most demanding operating conditions, Xtra-Guard cable is the longest-lasting, highest-performing cable available. Field-proven application performance year after year has made Xtra-Guard cable the first choice of engineers for more than 3 decades.
EcoWire ® recyclable hook-up wire
The 100% recyclable EcoWire hook-up wire is lighter, smaller, and up to 10x tougher than standard PVC hook-up wire. With up to a 45% smaller diameter and 40% lighter, EcoWire is perfect for medical devices where space savings is critical. EcoWire derives its advantage from its unique insulation, a modified polyphenylene ether (mPPE) thermoplastic. mPPE-based insulation is non-halogenated and contains no heavy metal pigments, allowing it to help manufacturers meet Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) requirements.
EcoWire ® Plus hook-up wire
While offering all of the environmental benefits and abrasion resistance characteristics of original EcoWire, EcoWire Plus provides additional fluid resistance for demanding applications. EcoWire Plus meets the fluid resistance of ISO 6722 for thin-wall and ultra-thin wall wire, making it an ideal thin-wall replacement for XLPE-insulated wire.
Tubing and Accessories
FIT ® heat-shrink tubing
FIT tubing is available in a wide range of materials and shrink ratios to reliably protect, seal, and add strain relief. FIT preferred heat-shrink products are made from premium compounds under the tightest manufacturing controls. This means FIT will have excellent physical characteristics such as low longitudinal shrinkage and wide temperature ranges.
FIT ® Wire Management
Bringing order to wire harnesses and cable routing means a system that is more reliable, easier to fabricate, and simpler to maintain. Our woven sleeves are tough and flexible. For additional resistance to chemicals, oils, and solvents, our flexible tubing offers exceptional performance and operates at temperatures as high as 260°C. Our braided shields are effective and easy to use for additional EMI protection or a ground connection.
