Belden Ethernet Cable Technology: Bonded-Pair

Most DataTuff cables feature Belden’s Bonded-Pair technology, a patented cable construction which affixes the conductor insulation of the cable pairs along their longitudinal axes to ensure that no performance-robbing gaps can develop between the conductor pairs.

  • No gaps between the conductor pairs means that the conductor-to-conductor spacing, or centricity, is always uniform

  • With a uniform centricity, the cable offers excellent and consistently reliable electrical performance

  • Installable Performance® is achieved - the affixing of the insulation of the cable pairs and the uniform centricity translate to superior electrical performance, even after the cable has been subjected to the bending, pulling and twists inherent in the installation process

The Proof is in the Testing

Belden has conducted extensive testing comparing both the physical and electrical performance of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) cables versus Belden industrial cables. The results clearly indicate how quickly commercial-grade cable fails when faced with the wide variety of extreme conditions found in industrial environments.

In every test, conducted with state-of-the-art equipment and validated cable samples, industrial cable significantly outlasted and outperformed COTS cable. With Belden industrial cable, your signal quality is protected.

Testing included:

  • Cold Bend
  • Cut-Through
  • Water Immersion
  • Crushing
  • UV Exposure
  • Abrasion
  • Oil Resistance
  • Cold Impact
  • High Temperature

DataTuff™ Differentiators

Industrial networks are the backbone of critical operations the world relies on every day, from manufacturing lines to utility plants. In environments that are not typically climate-controlled, varying temperatures create stress on network components.

Ordinary cables that might perform just fine in an office setting won’t hold up when exposed to harsh environmental factors. Trust Belden for industrial-grade Ethernet cables with a proven track record for reliability in rugged settings.
