Belden and Alternative / Equivalent Cables

Belden cables are designed and manufactured to exacting standards delivering a high-speed and high-quality end-to-end data transmission cable. They cover communication technology applications including data transfer, sound and video communications, signalling and instrumentation providing connectivity in industries as diverse as automation & process control, power generation and data centres.

The range of applications covered include those set out in the Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA) standards EIA 232 (formerly RS232), EIA 422 (formerly RS422), EIA 423 (formerly RS423) and EIA 485 (formerly RS485).

Eland Cables also offers a wide range of alternative and equivalent cables.
