If you need a large amount of 22-gauge, 2-conductor stranded cabling, look no further than this option from Genesis. A Resideo subsidiary, Genesis is known for their top-quality cables that can be used in a wide variety of different alarm system applications. This listing is for 1,000 feet.

At 22 AWG, this cabling option is slightly thinner than the standard 18-gauge wires most commonly used with security systems. We find that 18-gauge wire provides the ideal balance of flexibility and maximum recommended run length. With the thinner 22-gauge wire, users can expect increased flexibility, but shorter recommended runs. Some users may find that this is the best option for their needs.

The phrase "2-conductor" means that the cable has two inner wires for completing connections. Most security sensors are best-suited for 2-conductor connections. 2-conductor wiring is also optimal for connecting alarm panels to their plug-in transformers. However, there are some devices that require the use of 4-conductor wires. These devices include wired keypads and four-wire life-safety devices.

Each of the two inner wires used with this cable is built from copper. Most users will find that copper makes a great conductor for both data and power transmissions. This makes the Genesis Wires incredibly versatile and suitable for a large number of applications. The two inner wires are individually insulated. One wire will be red, and the other will be black.

Note: This is unshielded cabling.
