Instrumentation Cables

Instrumentation Cable - Shielded Cable


Authorised Distributor for Polycab Instrumentation Cables & Politech Shielded Cables - Shital Electric Co.

The Instrumentation Cable - Shielded Cables are largely used for specific needs such as fire alarm in refineries, chemical, cement, steel, railways, thermal and gas power plants. The instrumentation and control system of process industry, power generation and distribution, other main industrial bases which require different designs of instrumentation cables.
They are generally made as per specific requirements. The range includes single/multi core cables with Al. Mylar Shielding/Copper Braided Cables etc.
The specification of Instrumentation cables are as follows.


Annealed bare/uniform coated with Tinned/Silver Platted, High Conductivity, and Electrolytic Grade Solid/Stranded/Flexible Conductor.


Conductor are insulated with General Purpose/HR PVC Compound/Solid/Cellular PE/PP/or any other dielectric material as per customers specification.


Two/Three/Four cores are uniformly twisted together to form a Pair/Triad/Quad with maximum lay length 80 mm/as per requirement of customer. The lay shall be so chosen as to minimize cross talk in the cable.


If required, Individual Shielding may be of Poly Aluminum [Thin Layer of Aluminum Foil bonded to Polyester Film] Tape with Annealed Tinned Copper Drain Wire. It prevents the shorting of adjacent shield and minimizes the cross talk and ground loops. A Tinned Copper drain Wire is installed to provide continuous contact with the shield and allow to connection to ground. Tinning the drain wire reduces galvanic corrosion between drain and shield.


Pair/Triad/Quad are laid up with suitable lay. The outer most layers are right hand lay and successive layers are laid up with opposite lay. Then, a Melinex Tape is provided to bind up laid up Pair/Triad/Quad.
Shielded Cables


If required, Overall l Shielding may be of Annealed Tinned Copper Braiding/Poly Aluminum [Thin Layer of Aluminum Foil bonded to Polyester Film] Tape with Annealed Tinned Copper Drain Wire. Braiding ATC Shield has high tensile Strength and provides better coverage in flexing application. They are easier to terminate. This provides effective shielding; cross talk and noise are kept to an absolute minimum.


It is applied over inner Sheath. It may consist of galvanized Round Steel wires or galvanized Flat Steel Strips.


It is applied over Armouring in case of Armoured Cable or over Inner Sheath in case of Unarmoured Cable. The Color of Sheath is Black or Grey. The Sheath material may be General Purpose/HR/FRLS PVC Compound as per requirement of specification.


To simplify jacket removal, high tensile strength nylon Rip Cord is provided over laid up of pairs/triads/quads below the outer sheath in case of Unarmoured cable or below the Inner Sheath in case of armoured Cable.
