Dear Valued Customer,

The Alpha Wire portfolio requires regular review to ensure our products continue to offer the most updated features and benefits, in addition to the highest quality.  This letter serves as your formal notification of changes to Xtra-Guard Flex 85000CY and 65000CY series.

As of April, 20th 2021 Wall thickness of inner jacket for shielded cables in 85000 and 65000 series is being reduced. Cables with core diameter of less than or equal to 0.499” is being reduced to 20 mil and for the cables with core diameter greater than 0.500” is being reduced to 0.025” thickness. Resulting in Inner Jacket wall thickness reduction of around 17% to 67% across the two product line series.

The change results in reduced overall diameters, weight savings and improved bend radii for these cables.

Detailed list of all the part numbers effected by this change is provided in the formal notice accessible below.
