Control cables are multi-conductor cables used in automation and instrumentation applications. Flexible Control cables can measure and regulate transmissions of automated processes.
It can be used in the construction of machine tools, plants, and appliances, as well as in heating, air conditioning, and ventilation technology, and other spheres of application in electrical units.
Variants of Control Cables:
Control wires are generally Unshielded or shielded flexible control cables. Sometimes control cables are Armoured or Steel Wire Braided for mechanical protection.
The shielded control cables are typical with a foil shield, braid shield, or a combination of the two.
Type of Insulation & Sheathing:
Control cables generally have PVC insulation & PVC sheathing. However, other insulating materials are also used based on the type of application & place of installation such as PUR; LSZH; Nylon; EPR rubber, etc
Conductor: Stranded bare copper or tinned copper of Class 5
Insulation: PVC (mostly) or TPE/ XLPE/ EPR/ Halogen-free compound
Cores laid & twisted to form the bunch
For Shielded Version: Aluminum Foil with Drain wire or Tinned copper braiding for EMI/EMC protection
Outer Sheath: PVC/ XLPE/ POLYURATHANE/ EPR/ HALOGEN FREE COMPOUND / SILICON / TEFLON etc
Typical Voltage Grades:
300/500 V; 450/750 V & 600/1000 V
IS 694/ VDE / UL /CSA/ HAR
RoHS/ REACH / CE
