Wires and cables are used to bear electrical loads and communications signals. Using the proper gauges, lengths and types are important considerations in power distribution and industrial networking.
Cables meet equipment at terminals and terminal blocks, or have specific connectors to meet certain equipment standards or fit specific receptacles. Cables can also meet a power distribution blocks, to power several components or devices using one power source. Finally, cables can terminate at different adapters or modules to facilitate remote access, DIN rail installation and more.
Adequate cable management is accomplished with conduit, ducts, harnesses and tie. Grouping or separating like cables and wires can reduce clutter on a control panel or reduce interference and noise.
