Manufacturers We Trust: Belden
Today, we introduce you to Belden, another well-known cable wire and cable producer. Belden is one of the biggest cable manufacturers in the entire world. Aside from the United States, the company operates in Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and the Asia Pacific. Though the company has an extremely large cable range, it is most known as a producer of cables for broadcasting, computers, and security.
The company's history dates back to 1902, when it was founded in Chicago by Joseph C. Belden under his family name. During that time, the company found success thanks to patented flexible enamel insulation that was superior to what was available on the market at that time. In the 1980s, the company was acquired by other cable manufacturers before becoming independent again in 1993. Since then, Belden has based its business strategy on acquiring other well-known cable brands worldwide. Thanks to this strategy, the company can maintain a broad range of specific products at a consistent quality.
Types of Belden Products Sold By Nassau National Cable
The Nassau National Cable website carries 147 Belden cables of four different types. These are coaxial cables, VFD cables, Multi-Conductor and Pair cables, and Sound, Security & Alarm cables. Let's focus on what each line has to offer to the customers.
Coaxial cables are transmission lines used to transmit telegraph, telephone, television, and Internet signals. Belden's cables are suitable for video distribution (including the commercial one), CATV, CCTV, and Wireless television. Belden's range of available jacketing and armoring is some of the most extensive on the market of coaxial cables.
Variable frequency drive cable, also known as variable speed drive cable, is a type of cable specifically for use within a variable frequency drive system where the cable’s workload is continuously increasing and decreasing. The variable speed capabilities of a VFD cable lets the controller adjust the frequency and voltage to the AC motor to control speed and torque. VFD cable can handle rapidly changing frequencies and voltages while containing noise and preventing electrical interference. Belden markets its VFD cables as suitable for complicated operational settings.
Multi-Conductor and Pair Cables
Multi-conductor and multi-pair Belden cables are used with communication devices, computers, instrumentation systems, control systems, and data transmission devices. This is the product line of Belden cables that has the most variety. The cables with different conductors and insulations are available as a part of this product line. The product line includes audio control cables, mil-spec cables, networking cables, data cables, hook-up wires, bonding cables, computer cables, and many others.
Sound, Security & Alarm Cables
Sound, security, and alarm cables are used for detectors to trigger a notification in case an issue of concern arises in a system. The sensors detect a rise in temperature, smoke, light or sound. Belden is the market leader in designing and developing this particular type of cable.
