How to Effectively Reduce the Aging Speed of Industrial Control Cables?

Ⅰ. What are industrial control cables?

What are industrial control cables? Industrial control cables are widely used in cables and equipment control units of industrial control systems, especially in fieldbuses and networks, and are connected to electromechanical equipment such as actuators, encoders, and sensors to realize automatic power transmission functions. Because of its good adaptability, industrial control cables have low environmental requirements during use, as long as the installation and laying temperature is not lower than 0 degrees Celsius. And it can adapt to a wide range of rated voltage values, mainly divided into three grades, namely PE, PVC and TPU. Although industrial control cable has comprehensive performance and strong effect, it does not mean that it does not require maintenance during use. This is obviously unscientific. No matter what kind of cable, if not maintained, it will inevitably speed up the aging of the cable and shorten the life of the cable.

Ⅱ. How to effectively reduce the aging speed of industrial control cables?

1. Avoid external damage

In many cases, the problem that causes cable damage is not in the cable, but in the way of operation. The wrong operation method can easily cause the cable to suffer external force damage. Therefore, whether in the process of moving the cable handling, or during the installation of the cable, or later use of the cable, the operation must be correct.

2. Avoid getting damp

This mainly refers to the moisture in the insulation layer and joints of the industrial bus cable. It is necessary to know that the joint is the most vulnerable part of the cable in use. When the joint is corroded by water vapor, it will gradually cause the cable to oxidize, which will damage the insulation strength of the cable and the contact performance of the joint.

3. Avoid chemical corrosion

People who often use cables should know that cables are usually buried in the ground in use, especially for cables with comprehensive performance such as industrial control cables, it is more common to be buried directly in acid-base areas. In the case of immutable external conditions, in order to prolong the service life of the cable, you can add a protective cover or wrapping with a winding tube on the surface of the cable to improve the resistance to acid and alkali of the cable and slow down the aging of the protective layer of the cable.

As mentioned above, the service life of the cable can only be prolonged by taking effective measures from inside and outside. Of course, the last thing I want to remind you is that the methods to slow down the cable aging speed are far more than the above-mentioned points.
