Germany - The Industrial Nation

Industry is an important pillar of prosperity and growth in Germany. Each year, it accounts for around a quarter of the gross value added to the German economy. The manufacturing industry employs around 7.4 million people, who generate almost 2.1 trillion euros in turnover across various sectors.

German industry has always stood for high product quality and productivity, and above all for its strength in innovation. But maintaining this reputation demands a great deal from the individual industrial sectors: new competitors are entering the world market, new technologies are gaining ground and the topics of digital transformation and Industry 4.0 are becoming increasingly important. Companies are forced to constantly tackle new challenging situations in order to come out of them with renewed strength.

What are control cables?

Control cables are a type of cable used to transmit data from a computer or control device to other devices, including electronic wires or electronic signals sent from one control device to another to perform control functions. The control cables are designed to perform well in air conditioning and troubleshooting environments, suitable in various industries.

Cable controllers are also available in various lengths and sizes to meet diverse installation requirements. With performance and durability, control cables are an essential component of many industrial processes and are trusted for their precise and efficient signal transmission.

Common structure of control cables

The construction of control cables can vary depending on the specific application, but in general, a control cable is composed of the following main components:

  • Insulation: This is the outermost layer of a cable that provides insulation and protection from external electromagnetic interference. Insulation materials can vary but usually include PVC, Teflon or rubber
  • Conductors: These are the cores of wires that carry electrical signals in the cable. The number of conductors can vary depending on the application, but conductors are usually made of copper or aluminum.
  • Anti-interference shield: This layer is used to protect the cable from electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI). The anti-interference layer is usually made of stranded conductors or foil.
  • Outer protective layer: The outermost layer that provides protection from environmental conditions such as moisture, heat, and mechanical damage. The protective layer material is made of PVC, Teflon or rubber.
  • Cable connectors: Control cables usually have connectors at each end to facilitate connection to other devices.
