UNDERGROUND COMMUNICATION CABLE
SHEILDED AND ARMORED
SIZES: 18 AWG/2 PAIRS, WITH DRAIN WIRE

 
1.0 SCOPE:
  1.1 This specification covers requirements for an underground shielded cable designed to transmit and receive signals between irrigation satellites, central computers, weather stations, and sensors. The cable utilizes stranded insulated conductors, aluminum shield and drain wire to minimize electrical, magnetic, and radio frequency interference. The cable also features stainless steel tape armor for protection against rodents and for shielding of lightning and power surges. The cable is listed by UL or ETL or CSA.
