Shielded Cable Types

Posted by Admin on November, 29, 2013

The electrical cables consisting of more than one insulated conductors enclosed inside a conductive layer are known as Shielded Cables. The conductive layer which encloses conductors is the shield. This shield is mostly composed of braided metallic strands or non-braided metallic tape. The metal used in making this shield is ordinarily copper. Apart from metallic braided strands and tapes, conductive polymers are also used in making Shielded Cables.


The metallic or polymer shielding of Shielded Cables protects the conductors placed inside it from the disturbance caused by electromagnetic interference. This Shielding works like a “faraday cage” by protecting the conductors from radiations which cause electromagnetic interference and electrical noise. This shielding effectively minimizes the capacitive coupled noise which is known to originate from electrical sources.


Applications Of Shielded Cables

  • The signal cables installed in microphones are generally Shielded Cables. These cables are also used in recording studios and other sound applications for preventing the disturbance in transmission of signals due to electromagnetic interruptions arising from electrical sources.
  • Shielded Cables are also used in high-voltage power applications for protecting the equipment operating at high-voltage current.
  • Shielded Cables find application in health care facilities because they are flame resistant.
  • Shielded Cables are also installed in fire alarm systems because they are known to efficiently transmit signal and electricity even at high temperatures due to the flame resistant braided or tape shielding inside them.
  • Shielded Cables are also used in wiring facilities in residential and commercial spaces. These flame resistant cables protect conductors inside from electromagnetic disturbance and help in effective propagation of signals and electricity.
