Belden Offers C(UL)/UL Tray-rated Fieldbus Cables For Harsh Environments

Stocks in this article: BDC

Belden Inc. (NYSE: BDC), a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, expands its line of FOUNDATION Fieldbus cables with Type A C(UL) and UL tray-rated cable. It offers 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.

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.

FOUNDATION Fieldbus is the dominant industrial network in the oil, gas and petrochemical industries as well as most process industries. Belden Fieldbus cables are designed to withstand the destructive effects of temperature extremes, humidity/moisture, dust and oil. In harsh environments such as oil and gas extraction and refining sites, ultraviolet radiation from extensive exposure to the sun can shorten cable life. With the high cost of downtime in industrial applications, particularly in remote locations, investing in cable with proven performance and reliability can significantly reduce the likelihood of system failure.


The new cables have C(UL) CIC Type TC rating in 300V and 600V as well as UL 600V TC-ER Tray rating and 300V PLTC/ITC-ER rating in 18 AWG and 16 AWG and suitable for use in Class 1, Div. 2 applications. They have CMG, FT4 and IEEE1202 flame ratings and a temperature rating of -55° C cold bend and -40° C cold impact to 105° C.

Part of a Large Family of Belden Fieldbus Cables

Belden offers a wide range of FOUNDATION Fieldbus cables, including customizable features such as armor and various jacket options. For more information on Fieldbus cables, see Belden’s Product Bulletin #244, visit, or call 1-800-BELDEN-1 (1-800-235-3361).
