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.

Trex-Onics® Multi-Pair Control Cable

The Trex-Onics® Multi-Pair Control Cable at TPC Wire & Cable Corp. is constructed with Ultra-Shield, which includes a heavy-duty combination of tinned copper braid, foil shield, and tinned drain wire. This shielded control cable provides 100% protection from EM and RF interference. The security yellow polyurethane jacket provides excellent defense against cutting, abrasion, oil, and chemicals. Finely stranded conductors increase flexibility and conductor life.
