AutomationDirect releases 20 AWG multi-conductor flexible control cable
March 13, 2020 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
AutomationDirect has released multi-conductor flexible control cable in 20 AWG unshielded models with three to 25 conductors including ground.
Existing gauge sizes are available from 18 AWG to 10 AWG with three to 41 unshielded or shielded conductors, including ground wire.
The cable’s outer jacket is a flexible, premium-grade thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) that is resistant to sunlight, oil and moisture penetration, making these cables suitable for wet and dry locations as well as outdoors.
Individual conductors are bare copper and stranded for flexibility, with black PVC/nylon insulation and marked with numbers for easy identification.
The Tray Cable Exposed Run (UL Type TC-ER) and Power Limited Tray Cable (UL Type PLTC-ER) ratings allow the control cable to be installed between a cable tray and equipment or devices without requiring metal conduit and/or armour.
These cables are ideal for both stationary and flexible applications with limited mechanical stress and free movement without any tensile stress, loads or forced movements (not intended for continuous flexing applications).
Multi-conductor flexible control cable is available cut-to-length in one-foot increments starting at $0.44 per foot (20-foot minimum).
