Control Cables and its Features

Control cables flexible instrumentation cables are mainly used for the purpose of automation and control. Similar to other cables, helps control the transmission of signals that help manage and control the operation of the machines. The control cables are also known as instrumentation cables, multi-core cables, motors, cables and robotic Flex Control.

All those who have already tried a bicycle knows what brakes are and how they work. Control cables operate on the basis of the same concept. As bicycles, modern machinery such as cars and airplanes need control cables to regulate their movement. The construction of the control cables is similar to other cables with bare copper conductor, sheath and armor of galvanized steel. However, some varieties of control cables may not have armor, but they all added their sleeve for extra strength PVC compound. Industrial Control Cables are mainly used in applications where it is necessary for smooth movement. As these cables are subjected to handling the high pressure electromagnetic, they carry multiple cores and braids of tin coated copper.

There are different types of control cables and each are scientifically designed to regulate signals when interconnected. The reactivity of these machines depends on the application, the type of wire, the equipment and how it is connected to the machine. Although there are different types of control cables available on the market, those that are commonly used are CY (flexible shielded cables), YY (unshielded control cables) and SY (Flex shielded) cables. These cables are further divided into the low smoke, halogen free and halogen-free versions.
