Frequently asked questions:

How do you use cable markers?
Specifically designed for identifying cables, cable markers are essential in conduit and bundles. They not only assist engineers and technicians with identifying wires or cables, but they also assist with health, safety and effective maintenance.

How you use a cable marker can vary, as their method of application can differ. Adhesive and self-laminating are generally used for terminated wires, they wrap around the wire with a clear protective layer. Clip and slide on labelling are generally colour coded or pre-printed with letters, numbers and symbols. The single characters can also be combined to create a legend. Some are straight, some are chevron shaped. Whilst slide on markers need to be applied pre-termination, clip-on can be applied after termination. Heat shrink, shrunk to fit the cable are flexible, durable and do not fall off. Tie on tags or markers can generally be used on larger bundles.

RS offers a large range of cable ties, markers, labels and kits.
