Recently, Belden expanded its line of FOUNDATION Fieldbus cables with Type A C(UL) and UL tray-rated cables. These cables offer Belden reliability in harsh environments such as the oil sands of Canada and other oil, gas and petrochemical operations. The cables comply with both Canadian and US regulatory requirements and meet the Fieldbus IEC 61158-2 (ISA/SP-50) specification.The single- and multi-pair cables come with XLP insulation and comply with both Canadian and US regulatory requirements. XLP offers improved cut through and chemical resistance compared to other insulators.

Belden standard single and multi-pair cables are available with an easily identifiable orange jacket, or a blue jacket for Intrinsically Safe (IS) applications. They are UL approved for direct burial, are oil and sunlight resistant, RoHS compliant and CE approved. XLP insulation provides additional physical enhancements of the conductors including better cut through and chemical resistance.
