Foil-screened data cable is used in the internal wiring of electronic equipment where high speed data transmission is a plus. The foil shielding also means the cable can stand up to high-frequency RFI applications. Typical applications include;

• Computer Wiring
• Point of Sale Equipment
• Process and Control
• Data Transmission

What are the Advantages of Foil Shielding?

Foil shielding is cheap and light-weight, and often used as a cheaper alternative to braided cables when it comes to EMI and RFI suitability, as well as offering complete shielding coverage. It also offers more space-saving options with lower cable diameters for use in smaller devices.

Unfortunately, foil shielding it is not as durable as braided shielding, and is not suitable to high-flex applications.
