Rugged Bus Cables for FOUNDATION™ fieldbus H1

Northwire leads the way manufacturing rugged FOUNDATION fieldbus cable specifically designed for the tough plant environments. Through continued product innovation and refinement, Northwire remains the leading manufacturer of cables for industrial networking.

DataCELL FOUNDATION fieldbus Type A H1 Cables feature:

  • 3rd Generation Design – Easy to strip; round, smooth jacket makes installation in cable glands effortless and secure.
  • Most Complete Line – 16 and 18 AWG, single and multi-pair cables with alternate color, shielding and grounding options.
  • Save Time and Money – ITC-ER (Exposed Run) rating on all versions eliminates the need for conduit in most applications.
  • Strong – Northwire ITC/PLTC-ER rated fieldbus cables pass the same crush and impact tests for metal clad cable (under UL 1569) without the difficult metal armor.
    • Eliminate conduit – when installed in accordance with recent NEC amendments, allowing exposed installation of ITC/PLTC (ER) cable.

See ITC NEC Code for more information:

  • Compliant – Meets or exceeds the new FF-844 specifications for "Type "A". All Northwire FOUNDATION fieldbus cables are approved for use in Class I & II, Div. 2 hazardous locations, are UL-listed ITC/PLTC-ER and CSA CMX-Outdoor-CMG.
  • Versatile – New dual-rated ITC and marines/hipboard version is arctic grade extreme – suitable for applications to -25°C.
  • Shipped Direct from the Factory – bulk or 300 M put-ups, from stock in 15 days or less.
