Electronics and low voltage cables
These Cables are commonly used within the automation and process control industry as an interconnecting cable to measure,
control and regulate computer aided production and also as a flexible cable supplying power to machinery used on production
lines, conveyors and computer units.
Control Cables are available with numbered cores & have the option of color-coded cores in certain sizes.
These cables are available in LSZH or PVC Jackets,
During detailed design project, the cable shall be selected with suitable specification for the intended application. In the beginning of the project, the specification for each cable part shall be carefully specified to satisfy the requirement of application and environmental condition. Normally the instrument cable consists of conductors, insulation, screen/shield, armor and outer jacket therefore the specification should covers and details each of them. The following information only describes the structure and its example, however the specification for each project may differ and shall be evaluated case by case hence details specified herein is not recommended to be copied and used directly.
– Conductor material, commonly used material is copper. Tinned coated copper may also be selected to prevent copper oxides which provides more durable and corrosion resistance
– Design of the conductor, whether solid, stranded, and flexible. Stranded conductor means the conductor is not single; instead it consists of several smaller size conductors which allow more flexibility.
– Size of the conductor cross section. Determining the size of the conductor requires information of the device operating voltage and current, length and resistance of the cable as they will contribute to the voltage drop across the cable. Cable shall be sized and ensured that the device at the end of the cable will function properly at a given voltage.
– Insulation material
The choice of insulation material is driven by several requirements such as electrical transmission properties, minimum and maximum temperature rating, burning behavior, abrasion and corrosion resistant
– Insulation thickness
The selection of insulation thickness, together with conductor specification, will be determined from the requirement of the voltage rating and cable strength. Note that the insulation thickness also contributes to the flexibility of the cable.
Screen is constructed from aluminized polyester film/tape which provide protection from external interference. The aluminum tape is spirally wrapped with 25% overlap to guarantee 100% coverage of cable element including in bending area. Screen also consists of copper drain wire of which shall be electrically in contact with the screen along the cable. Armor (to protect the cable against mechanical stress/load during construction and operation)
The selection of cable armor mainly depends on the cable installation and required mechanical properties such as maximum tensile loads, pressure loads, protection against rodent, minimum bending radius, direct burial installation. There are several types of cable such as galvanized steel wire braid, galvanized steel wire tape and galvanize steel wire round armor which each has advantages over each others.
– Environmental condition (humidity, temperature, solar radiation) – Method of installation (indoor, outdoor, direct buried, on trays, etc.
– Possibility of oil, chemical spills or abrasion
– Behavior in fire (low smoke, zero halogen to avoid toxicant)
– Flame retardant or fire resistant
These types of Cables are recommended for applications where the cables may need to operate for an extended period of time in comparison to a standard Fire Cable, e.g buildings of larger size where evacuation times are greater or buildings where sprinkler systems are not installed.
High-performance specialty Cables for utmost safety, productivity and resistance to harsh environmental conditions. From floating production storage and offloading platforms to jack-up rigs, mobile offshore drilling units and land-based drilling rigs, General Cable is uniquely positioned worldwide with an offering of the industry’s most comprehensive line of advanced IEEE, IEC and Communications offshore and marine shipboard cables.
