Colorado Wire & Cable is a proud distributor for Okonite’s world renowned CLX metal clad armored cable, cables used for instrumentation, control, low voltage cables to 2kV and medium voltage power circuits.
Okonite is a leading manufacturer of the absolute highest quality insulated electrical wire and cable that includes low voltage cables to 2kV. Founded in 1878, Okonite’s research, engineering and technologies have continually defined and redefined wire and cable for numerous industries, including electric utilities, railroads, air transport, rapid transit, chemical producers and refineries.
Low voltage cables to 2kV means carrying 12- 24 volts (up to 50 volts) and are, for example, lightweight, easy to bend, and are used in most homes. These cables transmit power to such electrical devices like running speaker wires, phones, TVs, lights, heating and A/C systems, and many other everyday items. The cable from your DVD player to your television is low voltage. Even the wire that attaches your mouse to your laptop is a low voltage wire- these cables comes with a jack and allows users to simply plug them into the device they wish to operate.
Low voltage cables to 2kV are not very big in diameter and don’t need a heavy gauge wire to securely conduct the current. These cables are typically the size of a human hair and are sometimes bundled into a larger cable. Other times, they run as a single strand, such as in a center wire of a coaxial cable. For communications purposes, these cables are usually shielded, which means that part of the signal runs through a woven mesh of wire that surrounds the central wire or wires. It is done this way to lessen the problem of radio frequency interference.
Also, with low voltage cable wires, you can usually do just about anything you want with it without worrying about being electrocuted.
At Colorado Wire & Cable, our partnership with Okonite remains unmatched. Both companies were built on rich histories where performance, achievement and legacies of service always exceed expectations. Contact one of our professionals today for more information.
