Industrial Automation Cables

As the sophistication and complexity of automated systems gathers pace, savings in labour, energy and materials increase together with proportionate gains in quality, accuracy and precision. However, downtime becomes increasingly disruptive, damaging and expensive. To help minimise that risk, we offer an extensive range of industrial automation cables covering automation and process control applications, ensuring operational reliability in industries where negating unplanned maintenance is a priority.

From power distribution cables for production lines, automated machinery and safety systems to data communications cables responsible for the smooth running

of sensitive control equipment, we supply the cables on which critical operations rely. Our range of specialist industrial automation cables covers the full hierarchy of controller systems, from Human Machine Interface (HMI) where systems are operated and monitored by a person, to programmable logic controllers (PLC) for non-time-critical communications systems such as the Ethernet, and through to fieldbus linking PLCs to electronic components. Our industrial automation cable solutions address the requirements from all of the major systems and networks including DeviceNet, KNX/EIB, Hart(Bus), Profibus and Profinet.

Reliable automation cables for the world's leading organisations

Other cables frequently used in industrial automation and process control applications include our tri-rated cable which meets and exceeds British (BS), American (UL) and Canadian (CSA) national standards and is recognised as one of the best in the cable industry. It was selected by Jaguar when building its high-tech production line in Longbridge, United Kingdom. The quality of this cable was vitally important in a selection process focused on safeguarding the operational continuity of automated processes.

Our range of industrial automation and process control cables providing interference-free data and signal transmission is as vast as the number of industries in which our cables are used. These include the more classic control flexible cables (CY and YY), which we supply to distinguished 

Scotch Whisky distilleries such as William Grant, and which they trust to control their rigorous quality processes. 

It also includes more specialised cables such as high-temperature silicone cables used by the same organisations in areas where our cables must perform under extreme conditions and meet stringent safety standards.

As a result of our reputation for reliably supplying quality industrial automation cables, we appear on the approved supplier list of leading international engineering firms such as Siemens and ABB, who rely on our industrial automation cable solutions in applications as safety-critical as controlling core temperature in nuclear power stations.
