Control cables

Control cables

  • Flexible shielded cables (2 to 100 cores) are used to carry energy (300V to 1kV) and low frequency signals to control the motor drive or the generator for breaking, positioning or optimizing rotor RPMs.
  • Special sheathing is available for ultra-low temperatures, while smaller LIHCH cables are halogen-free.

Our torsion- and oil-resistant cables are designed to last for 20 years and more.


These cables are part of our Windlink® solutions designed by Nexans to respond the very demanding expectations of the wind turbine market.

Special Cables

The progressive electrification of machinery, and the industry for electrical equipment and tools, creates an increasing demand
for mobile cables...

These cables are used in fixed installations or in installations or in environments were a high degree of flexibility is required.

Especially if control panels or other equipment is moved, these cables are most suitable.

The product range comprises cables which are suitable to interconnect most different applications from control and computer panels
down to lifts, material flow and automation equipment.

Control cables are exposed to a variety of mechanical and environmental stresses. Especially such as tension and pressure to cores
and change of length while bending.

These requirements are met by selecting most appropriate construction principles and state of the art conductor, insulation
and sheathing materials.

The degree of flexibility and...
