What is an unscreened cable?

The terms unscreened and screened in regards to cables will provide various purposes for the user. The first will be the price. As screened cables offer excellent protection in situations where cables may be trodden on or be bashed around. Unscreened cables however still have the protective PVC sheath over the cores and are still well sheltered from many outcomes, without the price of a screened version.

If a higher frequency is needed, then the screened version will excel within that area. However, if frequency isn't a worry area, then an unscreened version will still provide the application with an excellent performance.

Both unscreened and screened types are still a great option to order. Although if you're looking for a cost effective version, the unscreened would be a perfect choice.

What kind of protection do these cables have?

With wire protection a high priority, these unscreened cables can ensure excellent protection from different situations. Every cable is fully insulated within a black PVC sheath, which shields it from the elements and eliminate low impact damage, such as falling objects or trampling.

What is multicore industrial cable?

Multicore cable is a type of electrical cable which includes more cores than a standard power or coaxial cable. They can be supplied in various lengths and the number of cores can vary significantly. Commonly used within industrial or entertainment applications, they can keep otherwise messy and disorganised wire connections tidy. The name is self descriptive, in the sense that they would be able to house cores from various types of electrical cable into one sheath, such as coaxial and power. Due to the layout and coloured cores from these RS Pro PVC cables, installation is easy and efficient.

What is multi core cable used for?

It's impossible to list the entirety of uses multicore can provide, but as an example, some of the types of common applications are:

• Entertainment and audio industry
• Machines and factory control equipment
• Large control pads
• DIN-Rail terminals
• Conveyor belts
