What are control cables?

Control cables are specialized cables, used to transmit power and control functions in the machine system to remote control converters without using electromagnetic waves.

Control cables are used in industry, factory automation, robotic applications, drag-and-drop applications, cranes, airports, and railways. In addition, this type of control cable is applied in building systems, such as fire alarm systems, fire fighting systems, temperature measurement systems, sound systems, and many other applications.
