Touch panel automation cable for automation systems. The cable construction is a hybrid of data and power elements. The data pair is constructed from 22 gage conductors insulated with a data-grade foam PE dielectric that has a low k constant and reduces the high frequency loss of the cable. In addition, the data pairs are shielded with a 100% foil and drain for additional RF/EMI protection and suppression. The power elements consist of larger 18 gage conductors that minimize DC resistance and power loss. UL Rated, Gepco touch panel cables are available in plenum and riser versions.
