Control cables are multi-conductor cables used in automation and instrumentation applications. Control cables can measure and regulate transmissions of automated processes. Control cables typically are protected with steel wire Armoured (SWA), steel tape Armoured (STA).
It is important to understand if the control cable will need to be flexible or if it will be continuously flexed. Cables used in movable applications such as cranes and elevators may require different needs besides flexibility so that they can be routed in a product properl.
