Belden The Brand You Depend On
Over and over again our customers tell us that Belden is the brand they trust for dependable signal transmission. No matter the market – broadcast, commercial networking, security, industrial or residential – the name ‘Belden’ has become synonymous with high quality and ensured reliability.<br /> <br /> We have earned our reputation as an expert solutions provider precisely because our customers are now, and have always been, our #1 priority.

An unparalleled resource for cabling and related product solutions, this catalog represents Belden’s commitment to providing you with the most reliable signal transmission products, whatever the application and wherever you are in the world.<br /> <br /> We believe you will find our Master Catalog to be an essential tool for solving a wide range of application problems. In addition, all of the information contained in this catalog, along with easy-to-use search tools, is available at www.belden.com.<br /> <br /> Environmental Compliance<br /> <br /> The use of materials that are environmentally friendly is of growing concern to Belden, its customers and to the global community. As a result, virtually 100% of Belden cables now meet the requirements of both the Restriction on Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive and California Proposition 65. This catalog has annotated only those cable products that were non-compliant at time of printing. Other Belden products in sections 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16 are in the process of becoming compliant. For updates, please see the Belden Web site or contact Customer Service.<br /> <br /> More detailed compliance information can be found in Technical Information (Section 22, page 22.23). For definitions of the various environmental regulations involved, please consult the Glossary of Terms, beginning on page 22.24.<br /> <br /> We Continue to Innovate with Award-Winning Cables<br /> <br /> Banana Peel®: Transforming Composite Cable Installation<br /> <br /> Chief among these offerings is an entirely new concept in composite cable design called Banana Peel. Belden® patented Banana Peel cables* are an installer’s dream, offering an easy-to-install, fully integrated version of a composite cable construction where the various cables are not just bundled together but affixed to a center spline for easy pulling.<br /> <br /> But there’s more – Belden has gone one step further in installation ease by completely eliminating the overall jacket. Without this jacket, a whole step in the installation process is eliminated, plus the individual cable components are all instantly identifiable and ready for termination. Installers can now pull of a variety of cables at once, then simply peel the individual cables off the center spline and terminate them. It’s that easy.<br /> <br /> A Whole New Level of Security: Belden Safe-T-Line® Cables<br /> <br /> Another recent award-winning cable is Belden’s Safe-T-Line Circuit Integrity cable – a cable that allows the EVAC systems in high-rise office buildings to remain operational for two hours in the event of a fire or other emergency. This allows the building occupants an opportunity to hear either live or recorded voice instructions that will guide them out of the building in a timely and orderly way. Reliability of this kind takes design integrity – something that our customers define as a core Belden competency.<br /> <br /> DigiTruck®: An Extremely Small Cable with Big Performance<br /> <br /> Award-winning DigiTruck is a revolutionary new cable with superior return loss characteristics that has been designed specifically for analog, SDI, HD video and AES/EBU digital audio transmission in broadcast production trucks. DigiTruck is a miniature coaxial cable, weighing just 7.25 lbs per 1,000 feet, or about 60% less than a standard Mini RG 59/U coax. It also requires approximately 40% less space. Only Belden could devise such an innovative and efficient solution to meet the broadcast needs of today’s weightchallenged and space-cramped mobile television trucks.<br /> <br /> Premier Structured Cabling Systems – Both Copper and Fiber – Are Now Part of the Belden® Line-Up<br /> <br /> Our full range of Belden IBDN® copper and fiber structured cabling products and systems can be found in the Commercial Networking sections (Sections 15, 16 and 17), where you’ll also find a full complement of training programs for Belden IBDN.<br /> <br /> All Belden IBDN networking system components are engineered to exacting specifications and manufactured under the most stringent quality controls. The components used in our Belden IBDN Systems – including backbone cables, cross-connect hardware, cross-connect patch wires and cords, and horizontal cables – have been specifically designed to work together as an integrated system. To complete the installation, our product offering also includes a variety of outlets, connector modules, faceplates, adapters and modular cords.<br /> <br /> Our flagship system, Belden IBDN System 10GX®, is revolutionary not only in its expression as a fully integrated 10 Gigabit structured cabling solution, but in the way it has been designed around a series of dynamic enabling technologies. These technologies help solve the two major performance issues that plague most other manufacturers, yet they are instrumental to 10 Gigabit transmissions: the ability to significantly reduce Alien Crosstalk and the control of key electrical characteristics during high frequency operation.<br /> <br /> System 10GX and other Belden IBDN structured cabling systems have been widely installed around the world. Their ubiquity is testimony to the proven success of these systems.<br /> <br /> Other top-performing structured cabling systems in the Belden IBDN mix include:<br /> <br /> • The 1.2 Gb/s Category 5e Belden IBDN System 1200<br /> <br /> • The 2.4 Gb/s Category 6 Belden IBDN System 2400<br /> <br /> • The 4.8 Gb/s Beyond Cat6 Belden IBDN System 4800LX<br /> <br /> On the optical fiber side of the structured cabling systems business, we offer Belden IBDN FiberExpress. The FiberExpress Solution is a complete end-to-end optical cabling system supporting both centralized and fiber-to-the-desk topologies, as well as backbone and campus cabling configurations.<br /> <br /> For the ultimate in quick, easy and reliable optical networking, we also offer the FiberExpress Pre-connectorized System. These products are “plug and go” and their deployment requires no specialized tools, so you can deploy 12 fibers in the same amount of time it takes to connect a power cord to a standard electrical plug!<br /> <br /> All Belden IBDN Systems Are Fully Certified<br /> <br /> To be ‘Certified’ each Belden IBDN system must be designed and installed by a factory-trained Certified System Vendor (CSV), plus the system must be composed of all Belden IBDN components. A 25-year Product Warranty and a Lifetime Application Assurance program accompany each Belden IBDN ‘Certified’ System installation, including coverage for both parts and labor.<br /> <br /> Our Customer Training Programs Are an Industry Standard<br /> <br /> To facilitate our customers’ understanding of structured cabling – and in order to keep both our customers and our CSVs current with new technologies, techniques and industry standards – we offer the Belden IBDN Training Center. With classes taught by a highly credentialed staff with over 100 years of cumulative experience in structured cabling, this Center serves the needs of more than 5,000 individuals each year.<br /> <br /> An All-New, Comprehensive Line of Cable Management Solutions<br /> <br /> New This Year Are Belden’s Enclosure and Open Frame Rack Solutions<br /> <br /> A full complement of products – including numerous mounting, cable and patch cord management options and accessories – have been designed to meet the unique needs of data centers, as well as various networks and control systems. Whether it’s the protection of sensitive equipment, or the ability to mount equipment of varied sizes and depths, Belden has the solution you need.<br /> <br /> We’ve Even Added Cable Ties and a Surface Raceway System<br /> <br /> To help get organized and neatly route installed cable, we also offer a wide variety of cable ties in standard nylon, weatherresistant nylon, or Velcro® to suit varying load capacities.<br /> <br /> Another addition, the Belden® Surface Raceway System, is a functional, affordable and attractive solution for wire enclosure applications. This product line includes extruded raceways with pre-applied adhesive backings, a variety of fittings and junction boxes.<br /> <br /> A Masterful PoE System Becomes Part of Our Systems Offering<br /> <br /> Ensuring Reliable Delivery of Power Over Ethernet (PoE)<br /> <br /> We now offer the Belden PowerSense® system, a cutting-edge, modular approach to the distribution of wireless signals. Our system products include PowerSense Midspan Hubs, any combination of discrete power modules, connectors and Y cables. With PowerSense, it’s easy to scale up when devices need to be appended to the system because new modules can be added to our hubs as they are required.<br /> <br /> How to Use the Belden® Master Catalog<br /> <br /> If You’re Not Sure Of What You Need… Select By Cable Type or Application Use the Section Index below or look at the more detailed Table of Contents pages found at the beginning of each section to find your cable type or application.<br /> <br /> Select By Keyword Reference the Table of Contents section on the following pages for an alphabetical listing of product keywords.<br /> <br /> Consult the Cable Finder Guide If you know the gage size, shielding type, and/or number of conductors needed for your application, you can locate a part number and corresponding catalog page number for all matching multi-conductor and paired cable products in the Cable Finder Guide (Section 2).<br /> <br /> If You Know The Belden Part Number… Consult the Index in the Back of the Catalog In the Part Number Index (Section 23), you’ll find a numerical listing of Belden part numbers.
