1. What You Need To Know About Instrumentation Cable

If you are looking for any kind of instrumentation cable, then you are at the right place. We are experts in instrumentation cables for all applications that can be used in any sector where processing operations are not only measured but also controlled electronically. So as not to have any electromagnetic interference and also to have optimal performance, these power cables need to be reliable, provide protection that is shielded and be robust as well.

 You can trust all our products as they are manufactured in accordance to International Standards. Our very able and experienced team of experts also works hand in hand with clients to come up with custom designed cables to provide solutions to their unique requirements such as those in the oil industry, process control, automation, petrochemical and much more.

We have a number of instrumentation cables that fall under collectively screened (CAM) and individually and Collectively Screened (ICAM). Some of the insulation materials we use in our cables include silicone, Polyvinyl Chloride, Cross- linked Polyethylene or Polyethylene. We know acids and gas can have a gross impact in the performance of cables. That is why our instrumentation cables have a PVC outer sheath or a low smoke zero halogen sheaths for places that experience emission of smoke and acid gas which eventually may cause a fire or other major problems.

Components of instrumentation cables

Instrumentation cables have twisted pair with overall shield in which the shield protects from electrical noise disturbance. We also have twisted pairs with individual and overall shields which aid in shielding against cross talk. Individual models are insulated with PVC that is marked with a printing that is alphanumeric.

Our instrumentation cables have an electrode of 16 AWG or 18 AWG. They are uniquely designed to cut down noise as well as signal interference so as to ascertain that there is optimal and clean delivery of signals regardless. Our instrumentation power cable has been tested and approved to be of the highest quality by the NEC Article 725 Type PLTC and the NEC Article 727 Type ITC. You can have absolute confidence that it will mean your demands.

Aluminum polyester foil is found in overall shielded cable and it provides 100% coverage as well as the tinned copper drain wire. This way the cable is protected from any external electrical noise disturbance.

  • Instrumentation cables with individual and overall shields are fully coated with aluminum- polyester foil which offers total protection not only against cross talk between the pairs but also against external electrical noise disturbance.
  • Cables with individual electrode pairs comprise of stranded and bare copper wire. They have a black and white PVC insulation which helps in identification. They have a black insulation jacket that is also premium grade to protect electrodes in the cable against dangerous radiations from the sun. Corrosive chemicals bring about electric faults and that is why our cables have PVC to avoid such eventualities. You can be certain that our cables will stand the last of time thanks to the fact that they have a PVC coating which is biodegradable.
  • Our instrumentation power cable operates at temperatures of between 900 C to -400 C and as such it can comfortably carry out operations in wet or dry situations.
  •  Since there is no need for instilling the conduit as well as pulling boxes, this cable is very economical.

Applications of an instrumentation cable

An instrumentation cable has quite a number of uses. They are generally utilized in substations. They can be used for direct burial, troughs, open trays, continuous rigid cable support, encased in concrete, indoors installations or outdoor installations. They can as well be used for class 1 remote control and signaling circuits and class 1 division 2 dangerous places. Instrumentation cables are best for applications with 600 voltages.
