Industrial Cable

industrial cables 

Industrial cables cover a broad range of applications within the automation and manufacturing industries. Commonly labelled as European control cables, this range encompasses both LSZH and PVC insulated and sheathed cables. Whilst covering a range of applications, they share characteristics in being robust and designed for moving, flexing machinery rather than fixed installations.

Industrial cable applications

These cables are used for applications such as the control of conveyors in production facilities, in food and beverage plants, for monitoring equipment in chemical plants, and in clean rooms. The choice of cable sheathing is tailored to the type of installation:

PVC - The most commonly used sheathing material in continental Europe and hence prevalent in European control cables. This includes control cables for power applications such as the YSLCY 0.6/1kV cable (CY) and the YSLY 0.6/1kV cable (YY). 

LSZH - For cables used around sensitive equipment that could be damaged in the event of a fire, a low smoke zero halogen sheathing is often recommended. Commonly used cables include the LiHH cable and the tinned copper wire braid equivalent, LiHCH cable, as well as the H05RR-F cable. Silicone sheathing for high temperature cable applications are also classified as LSZH.

PUR - Polyurethane cables, including the Powerchain PUR, PUR-JZ Control, and Industrial Ethernet Cat 7 PUR cable, are commonly used in clean rooms and chemical plants as the sheathing doesn't harbour bacteria and so prevents the spread around a facility. The robust nature of the sheathing prevents tears and is resistant to most chemicals and oils.
