  1. 8305 - Multi-Conductor - Low Capacitance Computer Cable for EIA RS-232 Applications. 22 AWG stranded (7x30) tinned copper conductors, semi-rigid PVC insulation, twisted pairs, overall Beldfoil® (100% coverage) + tinned copper braid shield (65% coverage), PVC jacket.
  2. 9946 - Multi-Conductor - Computer Cable for EIA RS-232 Applications. 22 AWG stranded (7x30) TC conductors, S-R PVC insulation, overall Beldfoil® (100% coverage) + TC braid shield (65% coverage), PVC jacket.
  3. 5508FE - Multi-Conductor - Commercial Applications. 22 AWG bare copper conductors, PVC insulation, cabled, Beldfoil® shield tape (foil side out) with drain wire, PVC jacket with ripcord. Sequential footage marking every two feet.

 

NOTES: #3 has the extra wire running with the foil and is the easiest to use. #2 and #1 has a braided wire around the foil and requires a grounded metal connector to fully shield the wires. You can use #2 and #1 by adding a lead wire to the braid but it requires more work.
