Belden Introduces New Electronic Cable for Space-Constrained ApplicationsSt. Louis, Missouri – November 10, 2016 – Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has announced a new line of multi-use cables that are tailor-made for machine builders’ needs – SpaceMaker Series Electronic Cables. The line features highly flexible, smaller diameter cables to help machine builders and device manufacturers connect more devices in space-constrained industrial settings.

“As machines have become more compact, machine builders must find ways to route cables into very narrow pass-throughs and around tight corners. With this in mind, we designed a new line of cables that are up to 52 percent smaller and have a 74 percent tighter bend radius than standard cables,” said Hillary Whitehead, product line manager at Belden. “By using SpaceMaker Series cables, machine builders can create the ultimate system design without having to make compromises to manage bulky cables.”

These multi-use cables help machine builders connect input/output and field-level devices, such as sensors, encoders, push-buttons and actuators. They can also wire through control panels where space is tight.

Machine builders working in the discrete manufacturing, food and beverage, product testing, and automotive industries will benefit from the SpaceMaker Series’ ability to:

  • Connect more devices in tight spaces
  • Route through conduit and hard-to-reach spaces
  • Protect signal integrity even when exposed to chemicals, solvents, pressurized water, extreme temperatures or heavy vibration

“The SpaceMaker Series is rugged in design and is backed by a free, industry-leading, 10-year warranty. So, users can have the confidence that these cables will outlast the life of any other component on the machine,” said Whitehead.
