The Xtra-Guard family of performance cables has been expanded with 26 AWG and 28 AWG stranded conductors. Smaller gauge conductors help reduce the cable diameter, help provide better flexibility, increase compatibility with today's smaller connectors, and still provide high performance and system reliability. The small-gauge cables are available with a variety of conductors and twisted pairs. Shielding options include unshielded, foil, and Supra-Shield foil/braid. Supra-Shield is the company's proprietary high-performance shielding consisting of a trilaminate foil and tinned copper braid.
