Product Notes

Notes: Pair jackets and shields are bonded so both strip simultaneously with automatic stripping equipment. Datalene« insulation features include low dielectric constant and a dissipation factor for high-speed, low-distortion data handling. Physical properties include good crush resistance and light weight.
