    Control Cable and Instrumentation Products

    We needed a better cable in critical areas of our control system so TPC showed us their Super-Trex® and Trex-Onics® products but TPC challenged us to try anything to cause a failure. We decided to try the most abusive thing we could think of — run the cable over with a 60,000 lb track rig. When the initial test didn’t cause a failure, we performed a 0 degree turn, pivoting directly on the cable. The only damage to the cable was the abraded outer casing. Since this experiment 3 years ago, we have been using Super-Trex® and Trex-Onics® for our mission-critical cable assemblies, without a failure.

    Super-Trex® Reduced Diameter Control Cable (12 AWG)

    Super-Trex® 12 AWG Reduced Diameter Control Cable features a high strand count and cable construction designed to provide long life in dynamic flexing applications. The security yellow TPE jacket provides excellent protection against oil and most industrial chemicals. This shielded control cable has completed 20 million cycles without electrical failure in cat track testing. It's available in various conductor counts (from 8 to 22 conductors) and is also available in 20 AWG18 AWG16 AWG.
