Title: The Main Differences between Power and Control Cables - A Primer

The Main Differences betweenPower and Control
Cables - A Primer
  • Power and control cables are quite similar to
    each other. Both of them are used in electric
    utility in buildings as well as in industrial
    areas. They come within different voltages for
    the utmost convenience of people. For all those
    people who want to know the many benefits of both
    power and control cables, they are recommended to
    spend a little bit of time in order to gather a
    good amount of information. Both power and
    control cables are portable but the difference
    between power and control cables are many in
    number. Where power cables are used for the
    transmission of electricity, the control cables
    are used to control or measure in the well-known
    field of automation.

  • What are Power Cables?
  • Power cables are basically electrical conductors
    that are held together in order to transmit
    electric power on a large scale. It has many
    industrial applications which make the wires a
    popular choice to be used in ships, airports,
    industrial areas, underground, hospitals,
    commercial centers and many more. When they are
    installed, they can be either exposed or buried
    deep within the ground or a building. There are
    different sorts of power cables such as flexible
    cables which can also be used for mobile tools as
    well as heavy machinery.

  • The Uses of Power Cables
  • The power cables are made up of copper and
    aluminum. Most of the electrical conductors are
    made up of both these elements since they are
    good with controlling heat and do not melt away
    at higher voltage. People can easily get the
    single and multi-core power cables at the
    earliest convenience. They are available widely
    in the market. However, it is essential to check
    the kinds of power cables what are the most
    suitable before buying them for good since it
    tends to save people from the hassle of
    exchanging them later on. The difference between
    power and control cables is massive, though they
    are both used as a protection against electricity

  • What are Control Cables?
  • For people who are not entirely aware, control
    cables are flexible wires which are used to
    measure and control in the field of process
    automation. They have been used since many years
    in order to control electricity hazards in quite
    a lot of places. The places where these exclusive
    cables are used include building, construction
    and the railway industry. The name of the cables
    itself explains the task they carry out.
    Controlling is their main feature along with
    measuring and regulation. Whats more is that the
    control cable acts like a reliable conveyer. The
    cable is basically an interconnecting one which
    is installed in the middle of something most of
    the times.

  • The Uses of Control Cables
  • There are many types of control cables which are
    all unique in their own way. The main kinds of
    control cables are three in total, which are
    inclusive of CY, SY and YY cables. All the cables
    play a significant part in conductivity in the
    automation field. Where the SY cable is
    sufficient on its own, the YY and CY control
    cables work together in order to achieve many
    goals. The control cable basically has a voltage
    of 300/500. The sheath of the control cables is
    transparent which allows people to point out
    possible damage anytime without having to face
    any problem.

  • How are Power and Control Cables Different?
  • The main difference between power and control
    cables is that control cables are plain annealed
    conductors whereas the power cables are
    conductors of copper and aluminum. Where power
    cables are made for transmitting electricity, the
    control cables act as controlling agents in the
    different process automation fields. The range of
    the control cables goes up to 61 cores, which is
    rather impressive. The common thing between both
    the cables is that unlike the other kinds of
    cables, they tend to provide extremely high
    levels of conductivity and protection against
    electricity hazards.
