HELUDATA EN 50288-7 signal cable

In industrial automation, the petrochemical sector as well as communication, signal cables play an important role, helping to transmit instantaneous information of the control unit to other parts and vice versa. Which, the HELUDATA® EN-50288-7 signal cable is widely used for the purpose of digital signal transmission.

What are signal cables?

Signal cables are manufactured to transmit signals, sounds, and images in many different fields and industries. Signal cables can be used in elevators, cameras or audio systems, and machinery.

In addition to the ability to transmit signals, sounds, and images, the signal cable can send to the control center information about the status and operating position of the machines and equipment under control. Signal cables support remote control and serve effectively in industrial automation.
