Posted on Monday, February 2, 2015 by Kimberly Versaw

The Alpha Essentials product family, is exactly what is says, essential cable products for everyday design use.  The breadth and depth of Alpha Essentials products ensure an optimum solution to your application.  All of our cables are designed and manufactured to the highest standards to give you performance beyond a generic cable. Furthermore, Alpha Essentials cables are built to perform reliably electrically, mechanically, and environmentally each and every time.

Let’s explore some of the options we have within the Alpha Essentials product family:

Coaxial Cable: For a complete range of 50, 75, 93, and 100 ohm coaxial, twinaxial, and triaxial cables, we offer a wide range of insulation and jacket materials meeting the requirements of military specifications and regulatory agencies such as UL and CSA.  For broadcast quality video transmission, our precision video cables use FEP dielectrics to achieve low capacitance, high velocities of propagation, and tight tolerances for maximum signal integrity.

Communication and Control CableOur line-up of standard communication and control cables gives you maximum choice and fewer trade-offs. By offering you a comprehensive collection of insulation/jacketing materials, shielding options, and conductor counts, you can easily select the cable that meets your most demanding needs. We have cables that go beyond the ordinary to satisfy rigorous requirements of EMI performance, transmission distances, flexibility, and temperature extremes.  Our communication and control cables have low capacitance for improved transmission distances and signal integrity.


Below are some Communication and Control Typical applications:

  • Audio systems: speakers, microphones, intercoms

  • Broadcast and studio

  • Data transmission: RS-232, 422, 485


  • Computer peripherals

  • Business machines

  • Security systems: alarms, cameras, sensors

  • Control systems

  • Instrumentation systems

  • Point-of-sale systems

  • Banking system

Cords and Cordsets:  For consumer and industrial devices, business and communication machines, and medical and test equipment, our cords give you everything you need for reliable plugin power.   All our cords are UL Listed and CSA Certified; we also offer a wide range of CENELEC-approved products for international use.  Options include two- and three-conductor cords, shielded or unshielded, stripped and terminated cable ends, straight or retractile cords, and all common plug and receptacle configurations.
