In industrial environments, cables often have to transport a signal, data or/and power in the harshest conditions, e.g., high temperatures, chemicals, physical handling, humidity, oil, and other challenging situations. It is therefore extremely important that they can withstand such conditions. Effective protection against EMI and RFI is also recommended for industrial cables, depending on their use.
When selecting a suitable industrial cable, you generally choose from a vast selection of insulation and jacket materials, shielding options, configuration, high-flex capabilities, and other options. Each cable has a standard designation consisting of a series of letters and numbers, each of which refers to certain cable characteristics. This facilitates the selection of the most suitable cable for your needs, prevents possible errors, and ensures that the cable complies with safety regulations, cable’s life, and proper operation.
