Do I need a screen or unscreened cable?

Unscreened cables feature an outer cover which has been directly forced above the insulation and are ideal for electrical applications that produce low frequencies. Although unscreened, the cables provide sufficient protection and high performance whilst remaining a cost effective solution. If you need a cable for high frequency applications, then a screen cable would be more suitable.

What is multicore industrial cable?

Multicore cable is a type of electrical cable which includes more cores than a standard power or coaxial cable. They can be supplied in various lengths and the number of cores can vary significantly, depending on the type of application required. Commonly used within industrial or entertainment applications, they can keep otherwise messy and disorganised cable connections tidy and are cost effective solution.
