Intrinsically Safe Cable

Intrinsic CableWhen you hear hazardous what do you picture? Perhaps a fire or an explosion of some sort, but what about the sign that told you to stay out? You know, the bright yellow one that warns you of the toxic atmosphere you’re about to enter?

The bright blue jackets on our electrical cables for intrinsically safe circuits act in a similar way. They indicate a separate power circuit for hazardous type -i- that does not allow applications of green-yellow protective conductors. The intrinsically safe design is a technique that limits the energy below what is required to ignite a hazardous atmospheric mixture. This special jacket is oil, petrol and flame resistant and can be installed in damp or dry environments. That being said, installation is not permitted in open air or underground.

We offer three intrinsically safe cables at Hi-Tech Controls with a Flexible Blue (RAL 5015) PVC Outer Jacket for Hazardous Areas.

OZ-BL: Bare copper fine wire conductors, Black cores with white continuous figure imprint to DIN VDE 0293 without earth core, No wire screening

OZ-BL-CY: Bare copper fine wire conductors, Black cores with white continuous figure imprint to DIN VDE 0293 without earth core; Braided tinned copper wire screening with 85% coverage

OB-BL-PAAR-CY: Bare copper fine wire conductors, Color cores according to DIN 47100, Braided tinned copper wire screening with 80% coverage

High Flex Cable for Drag Chains

Drag chains, or cable carriers, are designed to protect cables on automated machinery, but what good does it do if the cables they’re protecting can’t handle the stress required for permanent operations in machinery? That’s like repairing the roof of your house while termites picnic on the bearing walls. What good is the roof going to be when the damaged infrastructure causes the house to collapse?

The same logic can be applied for applications that require extremely high processing speeds that need flexible cables with high mechanical stress resistance including export-oriented mechanical engineering, machine tools, production lines, robotic systems and systems engineering. Our SUPER-PAAR-TRONIC-C-PUR and SUPER-PAAR-TRONIC 340-C-PUR cables are developed with TPE and polyolefin core insulation, respectfully, and an adhesion-low & cut-resistant PUR-outer jacket. These cables guarantee reliable function and are ideal for multi-shift operations.

Silicone Cables

We’ve all been subject to Mother Nature’s mood swings when it comes to weather.  One day it’s 76° and sunny, then, not even twenty-four hours later, it’s hailing. It’s a good thing we live in a time where technology can protect us from such extremes. Take our Silicone Cables, for example. They have great environmental resistance properties and are heat resistant for permanent temperatures +356°F and short term temperatures +428°F. They can also be used at temperatures as low as -76°F.

All silicone cables are halogen-free, but their structures vary to offer extra protection where you need it:
FZ-LSi / FZ-LS / Neon Light: ignition cable
SiHF: multi conductor, flexible
SiHF/GL-P: multi conductor, steel braiding
SiHF-C-Si: multi conductor, copper shielded, EMC preferred
SiHF UL/CSA: multi conductor, 302°F, 600 V
Si HF-C-Si UL/CSA: multi conductor, copper shielded, EMC preferred, 302°F, 600 V
SiF / SiFF: single conductor, hook-up wire
SiF /GL, SiD, SiD/GL: single conductor, hook-up wire
THERMFLEX 180 EWKF: multi conductor, H05SS-F
THERMFLEX 180 EWKF-C: multi conductor, copper shielded, EMC preferred, 356°F
UL-Style 3135: single conductor, 392°F, 600 V

Product Announcement

You’ve heard the phrase “It’s what’s on the inside that counts” and at Hi-Tech Controls we believe it! We try our best to deliver products with outstanding quality for all of your applications. However, we also want you to be pleased with our product aesthetics. The new ENYCASE® Enclosure/Junction Box will provide you with everything you’re looking for. These boxes are designed for outdoor installation with protection from moisture, dirt, and dust (NEMA 4X, IP66/67) and offer higher impact resistance (IK09, 10 Joule) than our current stock of enclosure/junction boxes.

If you’re not picking up the phone to contact our sales reps yet, then maybe one of these key features will convince you:


1) Maximum Wiring Space 
The new robust design provides more room for all of your wiring needs.

2) Smooth or Metric Knockouts All of our new ENYCASE® Enclosure/Junction Boxes are available with smooth or multi-level metric knockouts.

3) Quick and Secure Lid Lock Locking the enclosure lid is easier than ever! Just turn a  screwdriver a quarter-turn.

4) Mounting Brackets Every Box, whether it comes with or without knockouts or terminal blocks, comes with external mounting brackets.

5) Terminal Blocks Every size are available with or without  terminal blocks.

6) Eight Sizes 3.66 x 3.66 x 2.44 / 4.09 x 4.09 x 2.76 / 5.12 x 5.12 x 3.03 / 7.09 x 5.12 x 3.03 / 8.27 x 6.10 x 3.62 / 10.03 x 8.07 x 4.41 / 11.61 x 8.86 x 4.80 / 13.98 x 10.04 x 4.80
