RS-485 Cable

Belden offers the industry's widest range of
RS-485 cable options. From power limited tray cable (PLTC) and plenum (CMP) rated cable to low smoke zero halogen cable, you get the ideal solution for your automation network. The industrial RS-485 cables are designed with low capacitance, ideal for long distance applications.


 

 

 

NEW: Introducing RS-485 Direct Burial Cable

Remote industrial settings that rely on long distance network communication often face higher installation costs and headaches due to cable capacitance and environmental concerns that could interfere with data transfer or compromise safety. Designed to address these challenges, this first-of-its-kind UL-rated RS485 Direct Burial cable comes with water-blocking and crush-resistant construction, meaning it is installable directly underground without requiring a separate conduit. This feature saves teams set-up time and costs in the field, while ensuring unprecedented reliability over long distances in harsh industrial settings. The Direct Burial RS485 cables also features sun and oil resistance as well as CM and PLTC ratings for use in a wide range of applications.

Advantages of Direct Burial RS-485 Cable

  • Application flexibility
  • Quick and reliable communication
  • Reliable long-distance installation through the cable’s inherent low capacitance to prevent data distortion or errors

Benefits of direct burial RS-485 products:

  • Greater resistance to crush, impact, water, noise, sun and other environmental stresses
  • Save time and money by eliminating the need for underground conduit
  • Multiple options and the ability to control multiple devices
  • Low capacitance for use across long distances and remote applications
  • Short response time with flame and smoke protection

Additional features of direct burial RS-485 products:

  • Water-blocking protects against exposure to moisture
  • Crush protection and UL direct burial rating makes cable suitable for underground installation
  • Sun and noise resistance makes cable ideal for use in outdoor environments
  • 300V PLTC rating for use on power limited trays
  • CM rating for fire resistance
  • Application flexibility
  • Quick and reliable communication
  • Reliable long-distance installation through the cable’s inherent low capacitance to prevent data distortion or errors
