Wire & Cable

Wires and cables transmit power and signals, and include power cables for supplying power, signal-transmitting cables for electronic and communications devices, robot cables used in arms of industrial robots, coaxial cables for receiving TV signals, and more. Each type of wire or cable features different characteristics; for instance, electrical cables are expected to be highly fire-resistant with high levels of safety, whereas smaller electrical resistance is desired for transmitting larger amounts of data in communications cables. Industrial robot cables feature high flexibility and torsion resistance to withstand numerous repetitive motion cycles. Selection criteria for wires and cables differ according to operating environment and equipment used. For example, cables for use in vehicles must be selected based on water-resistant properties, as well as oil-resistant properties and high-temperature resistance.
