The industrial control cable is used to transmit signals between and to devices. They are used in power plants as telecommunication cables and for other industrial applications that require data transmission.
Transmission control is the main purpose of a control cable. PVC-insulated cables are commonly used in industrial applications.
* Aluminum ones – Good quality aluminum electrical wire conductivity ranks just above gold, silver, and copper. They are strong in mechanical strength and resistant to corrosion. They are not easily welded due to their low tensile strength. The use of aluminum alloy in industrial control increases heat resistance, mechanical strength, and soldering capability.

* Copper ones – They are nonmagnetic, and they resist corrosion. They are second only to silver and gold in terms of thermal conductivity and electrical conductivity. They are easy to weld and can be used extensively. Copper alloy reduces wear and tear, improve physical and mechanical properties, and resists corrosion.
* The silver ones – They are the most resistant to corrosion and oxidation. They are very easy to weld and are used primarily for coating or cladding layers.
An electrical control wire transmits an electric current. It consists of two or more wires that are connected by twisting or braiding. An insulating material is applied to the electrical wires. The classification of the cables is based on their type of protector, insulation, electrical conductivity, and cost. These cables can be found in both industrial and residential areas.
