Multi-conductor cable provides connectivity for electrical power and signals. Use portable cord for heavy-duty indoor/outdoor applications; communication cable for low-capacitance transmission of data signals; control/sensor cable for most discrete signals; instrumentation cable for analog signal transmission. Most cable can be ordered cut to your specified lengths, or in any bulk length.
Typical indoor and outdoor applications for these multi-conductor cables include industrial machinery wiring, large appliances, heavy duty tools, motors, mining cable and temporary electrical power and lighting for construction sites.

AutomationDirect offers high quality, low-capacitance data cable designed with impedances specific for RS-232/RS-422 and RS-485 communication applications in industrial environments.
Multi-conductor Flexible Control Cable is available in sizes from 20 AWG to 10 AWG with 3 to 41 conductors available. Individual copper conductors are stranded for flexibility, with black PVC / Nylon insulation and marked with numbers for easy identification.
Vinyl Nylon Tray Cable (VNTC) 600 Volt Type TC-ER control cables from AutomationDirect are suited for use in wet and dry areas, conduits, ducts, troughs, trays, direct burial and where superior electrical properties are desired.
Power Machine Tray Cable is available in sizes from 18 AWG to 8 AWG with 3 to 25 unshielded conductors. Individual conductors are bare copper and stranded for flexibility, with black PVC/Nylon insulation and marked with numbers for easy identification.
VFD cable is used to organize and protect the input and motor power wiring for variable frequency drives. It is specially designed to reduce VFD-related interference (EMI) on nearby equipment.
AutomationDirect VFD-SC series VFD / Servo cable is the same high-quality cable as our VFDC series with one additional feature. The VFD-SC cable has a shielded 16AWG signal pair allowing this cable to be used with motors and drives requiring brake control or feedback from devices like temperature or position sensors. Having the integral signal pair allows this cable to be used with our SureServo Drives and Motors up to 3kW.
DLO, RHH, RHW-2 heavy duty flexible power cable is a 2kV rated cable suitable for use in both wet and dry locations and can be used in conduits, ducts, troughs and control panels.
300V UL Instrumentation cables are dual listed as UL 2250 Type ITC (Instrumentation Tray Cables) and UL 13 Type PLTC (Power Limited Tray Cables).
igus CF5 and CF6 multi-conductor control cables are specifically designed, tested, and manufactured for continuous flexing, high mechanical load application requirements, and will provide a guaranteed service life between 5 million and 10 million cycles when operated within specified conditions.
igus CF130US and CF140US series cables are tray rated for continuous flexing applications. The cables are specifically designed, tested, and manufactured for use in both continuous flexing and fixed tray applications.
igus Chainflex® CF30 and CF31 motor supply cables are specifically designed, tested, and manufactured for continuous flexing, high mechanical load application requirements, and will provide a guaranteed service life between 5 million and 10 million cycles when operated within specified conditions.
Quabbin® DataMax Extreme Industrial Ethernet cable jackets were developed to survive the many industrial hazards that commercial jackets will not. DataMax Extreme cable jackets are pressure extruded over the cable core, effectively "locking" the conductor pairs in place. This type of jacket construction provides very stable electrical performance, even when flexed up to 10 million cycles (without failure).
Continuous flexing Ethernet cable starts at
$0.60 / ft. (20 ft. min.)
Quabbin DataMax® Extreme Industrial Profinet cables are a two-pair shielded construction with 22AWG twisted pair conductors and 7/30 stranded tinned copper with color coded high density polyethylene insulation.
igus CFBUS series continuous flexing Profibus cable is designed for constantly moving applications. The cable is available in a 24 AWG twisted pair. Individual conductors are bare copper and stranded for flexing applications. Conductor insulation is a mechanically high-quality red and green TPE mixture.
AutomationDirect flexible multi-conductor sensor/actuator cable carries UL and CSA approvals and is ideal for both stationary and flexible industrial factory automation applications with limited mechanical stress and free movement without any tensile stress, loads or forced movements.
Control and signal cable from AutomationDirect is available in sizes from 24 AWG to 16 AWG with 2 to 12 conductors, shielded and unshielded. The cables carry both UL and CSA approvals.
