One Cable, Many Facets
Automated processes are crucial for modern production. Control cables can be found in almost all industrial applications. This connection is used to change the operating mode. Motors or valves are switched to a different operating mode or rather processes are initiated or brought to a halt. To put it simply: control cables transmit data and signals to individual receivers to control them. In the industrial environment, control cables require special features, such as high mechanical, chemical or thermal resistance.
Depending on the application, control cables differ not only in their structure, but also in the material from which they are made. While PUR control cables, for example, have excellent resistance to abrasion and chemicals, silicone-insulated control cables perform better in applications that require unchanged flexibility even at extremely high or low temperatures. For a control cable that fulfills all requirements optimally, the right materials and, above all, their ideal preparation are needed in addition to sophisticated designs. The creation of special properties, such as permanent resistance to certain influences, requires highly specific knowledge and decades of experience. HEW-KABEL has both.

Depending on the application and requirements, our control cables are resistant to:
- mechanical influences such as bending, torsion, friction, vibration
- electromagnetic interferences
- liquids, oils, greases, chemicals
- heat and/or cold
- flames, flying sparks
- effects of environmental factors such as UV radiation
Optimized Materials For Optimum Functions
The materials used by HEW-KABEL guarantee the reliability of our control cables, even in difficult situations.
This thermoplastic insulation and sheathing material meets the highest requirements for abrasion resistance, notch toughness and chemical resistance. In addition, it has a particularly high tear resistance, very good low-temperature flexibility, and good hydrolysis resistance.
The perfluoroethylene propylene copolymer, which is self-extinguishing in the event of fire, exhibits good electrical insulation properties, good resilience and anti-adhesive behavior in addition to extremely high temperature, chemical and weathering resistance.
Silicone is halogen-free and is characterized by its high temperature resistance as well as permanent flexibility.
