What is Control Cable?
- Jan 25, 2019 -

Control cables are multi-conductor cables used in automation and instrumentation applications.  Control cables can measure and regulate transmissions of automated processes.  Control cables typically are shielded with a foil shield, braid shield or combination of the two.  Flexibility is a concern when choosing a control cable. It is important to understand if the control cable will need to be flexible or if it will be continuously flexed.  Cables that will be continuously flexed in process automation can require different constructions compared to a cable that simply needs to be flexible so that it can be routed in a product correctly and still function properly.
