Instrumentation Cable

We supply a wide range of instrumentation cables suitable for an even wider range of applications across industries where manufacturing and processing operations are controlled and measured by electronic means.

Instrumentation Cable

For optimal performance, these interconnection cables have to be reliable, robust and offer shielded protection, whether an overall screen or individually and collectively screened cable, to resist electromagnetic interference.

Our instrumentation cable products with flexible copper conductors comply with British and International Standards, including BS5308 instrumentation cables to British standards, French standard NF M87-202, and European standard BS EN 50288-7, amongst others. Our technical team also works with customers to develop screened cables designed and manufactured to meet their applications' specific requirements for industries including oil, gas & petrochemical, automation and process control, and marine & offshore.

Instrumentation cable portfolio

Some of the major national standards according to which we manufacture our instrumentation cables include:

British BS5308 Part 1 and Part 2 Cables
British / European BS EN 50288-7 Cables
French NF M87-202 Cables

The above covers a multitude of variants of instrumentation screened cables including collectively screened (CAM) and those individually screened and collectively screened (ICAM). These can be Polyethylene (PE), cross-linked Polyethylene (XLPE), Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) or Silicone (Si) insulated. They also generally have a PVC outer sheath or low smoke zero halogen(LSZH) sheathing for areas where smoke and acid gas emission would cause a serious problem in a fire situation. Our cables, including BS5308 Part 2 instrumentation cables, are also available armoured with steel wire armour or steel tape, offering protection against mechanical stresses.

Instrumentation cable selection

As a leading supplier of instrumentation cable and other screened cables designed for signal integrity, our technical engineers are there to assist with the cable selection process to help us supply an optimal solution for your specific application. Where cable sizing is quoted in the American Wire Gauge sizing, our AWG to MM2 conversion chart may also be of use.
