If you are looking for a short bit of wire to complete your next project, then this 10-foot cut of Genesis 22-Gauge, 4-Conductor (22/4) Wire may be exactly what you need. This unshielded and stranded cabling is easy to work with and recommended for both new and experienced installers.
Genesis Cable is used in countless low-voltage wiring projects every single day. The Genesis brand is operated by Resideo, but you can use their wiring with wired systems and sensors from virtually any manufacturer. This is a brand you can trust to deliver a great product, and you will truly enjoy working with this high-quality alarm wiring.
Since this is 22-gauge wire, it is slightly thinner than 18-gauge wire. Both 22-gauge wire and 18-gauge wire are used very frequently in low-voltage projects. The advantage to using the thinner 22-gauge cabling is that it will be slightly more flexible, and some installers find that it is easier to work with. The downside is that 22-gauge cabling cannot be used in as long of wire runs, as it loses electrical current more quickly.
As this is 4-conductor cabling, there are four (4) inside wires. The insulation colors are red, black, white, and green. We recommend using this 22-4 wire with devices that require a 4-wire connection, such as alarm system keypads, 4-wire smoke detectors, and powered sensors like motion detectors and glass break sensors. This stranded wire is made from copper, which is suitable for both data and power transmissions.
Also note that this is stranded cabling, as opposed to solid core cabling. Stranded cabling means that each individual conductor wire is further split up into multiple strands. This makes the wire more flexible and more forgiving, unlike solid core wiring, which can easily break off and split. We find that most installers prefer working with stranded wiring, and we are happy to offer you this high-quality Genesis Stranded Wiring.
Please note that if you are looking for large quantities of 22-4 alarm wiring, then we also offer 500-foot boxes and 1,000-foot boxes.
