About EcoGen


nullEcoGen™ Wire and Cable

Better Performance In a Smaller Package


Alpha’s EcoGen family of wire and cable combines better performance with minimum environmental impact. Each member of the EcoGen family derives its advantages from modified polyphenylene ether (mPPE) and polyurethane jacket on EcoFlex PUR. EcoGen is:

  • Zero Halogen
  • Capable of handling temperatures extremes to -50°C
  • Compared to PVC counterparts, EcoGen wire and cable is:
    • Up to 47% smaller
    • Up to 65% lighter
    • Up to 91% lower outgassing

Environmentally Friendly

EcoGen products contain no halogens, phthalates, or heavy metals. They meet RoHS and WEEE requirements for the elimination of hazardous substances.



 Low Specific Gravity

The 1.03 specific gravity of mPPE is 25% to 40% lower than other insulation materials, such as PVC, polyethylene, and crosslinked polyethylene. Along with the reduced wall thickness, the low specific gravity yields significant weight savings of up to 65% with EcoCable.


Better Dielectric Strength

The superior dielectric properties of mPPE make a reduced wall thickness possible, while maintaining the same electrical properties as a thicker PVC control cable.


More Choice in EMI Protection

Alpha Wire offers EcoGen cables in three shielding options to handle any electrical environment:
