Instrument Cable


Instrument Cables are suitable for signal transmission, and control circuits for instruments or other electrical equipment. Instrument cables are generally usually installed indoors, suitable for humid environments. In the industrial industry, it is often used for communication, data, and voice transmission signals and services, and can also be used as the interconnection of electrical equipment and instruments.

Types: CU / PE / IS / OS / PVC / Lead / PVC / SWA / PVC.

Advantages of ZMS Instrument Cables

Conductor Material
ZMS uses annealed copper conductors with tin/silver plated surfaces in the production of instrumentation cables, which prevents the core wire from being oxidized in long-term high-temperature environments and improves electrical conductivity.

Sheathing Insulation
Sheathing and insulation are made of polymers with excellent mechanical properties, able to withstand high-strength metal impacts and cuts. They have a very high tensile strength and can also withstand repeated bending over long periods.

Reinforcement Layer Polymer
A reinforcement layer is added to the cable, which is mainly a selected polymer material that prevents the shield from damaging the insulation and also enhances the overall mechanical properties of the cable.

In addition to the above basic characteristics, ZMS instrumentation cables also have the advantages of good resistance to electromagnetic interference (EMI), low capacitance, and high signal transmission accuracy.

Instrumentation Cable Selection

Power cable types under the IEC standard

• According to the laying method, select the instrument cable protection serial number, whether it is armored or not, as well as the most basic size and specification.
• According to the conditions of use, area, and economy, choose copper core or aluminum core.
• According to the load size selection of specifications and several cores: lighting load selection of 4 cores, office buildings and important buildings selection of 4 +1 cores, less than 25mm2 when the selection of 5 cores.
• Voltage level should be matched with the line.
• 1kV and below the current of the cable is usually 2 times its power, and the purely resistive load current is 1.5 times its power.
• When the cable length is greater than 400 meters, the voltage drop should be considered when selecting cables.
• When selecting cables also take into account the starting current of the maximum load, the future development of the project, and the cross-section margin.
