The difference between power cable and control cable.
Apr 16, 2018

Control cable is applicable to industrial and mining enterprises, energy and transport sector, for ac rated voltage up to 450/750 v control, protecting circuits using PVC insulated, PVC sheathed control cable. But what's the difference between it and a power cable? Let's take a look at it.

Power cable in the trunk power system for electricity transmission and distribution functions, control cable from the power system of power distribution point to transmit electricity directly to various power connections of electrical equipment. The rated voltage of power cable is generally 0.6/1kv and above, and the control cable is mainly 450/750v. In the same specification of power cables and control cables in production, the insulation and sheath thickness of power cables are thicker than the control cables.

1. The control cable belongs to the electrical equipment cable, and the power cable is two of the five types of cables.

2. The standard of control cable is 9330, and the standard of power cable is GB12706.

3. The color of the insulated core of the control cable is usually black and white, and the low voltage of power cable is generally divided.

4. The section of the control cable is generally not more than 10 square meters, and the power cable is mainly for the transmission of electricity, which is generally a large section.

Power cable of the specifications of the general can be larger, to 500 square feet (normal manufacturer can produce range), again big cross section of the general factory is relatively less, you can do and control cable section generally small, the largest is generally not more than 10 square meters.
