Tratos has the capability and resource to design enhanced instrumentation cable with fire resistance characteristics.
Cable designed with respect for both functionality and operating environment.
TOLERANCES & SENSITIVITY
Tratos’ cable properties are fit-for-application, working to sensitivities and increasingly restricted tolerances.
Tratos offers total solutions for instrumentation cables, including specialised product to meet customers’ exact requirements. Long-term experience and all the resources and technical information customers need are available through a team of experts able to design instrumentation cables to any specification. The team’s specialist technical data continues to grow day-by-day, thanks to extensive research and product development. A huge variety of cables are manufactured to meet specific technical standards.
Instrumentation Cables Usage
Instrumentation cables are often used within signalling systems. Their design means the transmitted signal is protected from internal and external interferences and disturbances. They are principally used in the control of industrial processes, chemical and petroleum plants and electrical power plants.
All these cables are suitable for installation in areas of intrinsic security (AD-I, and ATEX) and are anti-deflagrating (AD-PE, ATEX) – a requirement within most of the plants. The correct interconnecting cable is vital within control processes. The large quantity of the instruments, their particular sensitivity and the increasingly restricted tolerances dictate the properties needed for each application. Tratos makes this decision easier by offering a comprehensive range of specialist cables. The technical team will work with any problem, examining options thoroughly whilst keeping customers’ economy in mind in order to deliver the best solution.
