Armored Power and Control Cable from Allied Wire and Cable goes one step above shielding when it comes to protection. While shielding tends to be toward the middle of the cable, near the conductor, armor is either on the outside of the cable completely or it’s just underneath the jacket. Armoring adds extra protection for the cable in particularly harsh environments. If there is a chance of the cable getting pinched, cut, or damaged in any way, the armor will help protect the cable’s insulation and conductor from damage and costly repairs.
Teck90 Cable is a specific designation from CSA for Armored Cable. Available in different voltages, Teck90 Armored Cable has approval for use in Classes 1, 2, and 3 as well as Division 1 and 2 hazardous locations. Class 1 locations may have flammable gases in the air, Class 2 locations may have combustible dust particles in the air, and Class 3 locations may have combustible fibers present. Teck90 Armored Cable will withstand the impact of these dangerous materials should they be set off.
