feedback type assemblies are built using shielded, twisted pair cable. The overall shield protects against external EMI interference.
Shielding on power or brake assemblies is optional but generally recommended on servo power cables. This is to protect other
sensitive circuits from EMI that the power circuit can create.
DCS offers both standard flex and hi-flex cable. Standard flex would be
for static applications and hi-flex is designed for more demanding applications where cables are subjected to frequent bending.
Cables used in cable-tracks or subjected to frequent flexing should use the hi-flex option.
We use PVC or PUR jacked cable depending on your
automation environment. PVC is suitable for medium mechanical demands like in packaging machines and assembly lines. For the
more rugged demands of machining centers with high levels of oils and cutting fluids PUR jacket is recommended. If your application
is relatively clean and cable flexing isn’t required an unshielded SO cord for power cables can be used to reduce your
overall cable cost.
Your cable length is our standard length. We make cable
assemblies to your length specification, so you won’t have unneeded cable taking up room in your control cabinet.
