Default Multi-conductor control cable: PVC vs.

Good point... The ends of the shrink shroud will have to be protected to
ensure that the oil does not get inside. Otherwise it will "hang
around" doing its worst!

Mike.


I will put RTV in the end of the shrink and apply heat. Shrink-n-seal. All
this will be well inside the multipin connector so will be clamped with
strain relief.

Thanks.



No. Do not do that. RTV detaches with a sneeze.

Use "lined" shrink tubing for the cable end dress..

A shorter piece, and when heated, it exudes a sealant internally.

One way to source it is to search for "HV heat shrink". It is usually
of the lined variety.

Suppliers of such cables?


I'm not trying to give you a hard time, but this is a question that a
simple google search should give good results for. Have you tried
googling for silicone and the other parameters you require?


Jamie is an idiot. Silicone wires are typically for HV. They are
also typically of the single variety, as in not a bundle of conductors
for use in making a cable.

HV ganged together usually exhibits corona issues, and is therefore
not often done, so finding single silicone wires might be easy, but
fashioning lightweight cables from it is not very feasible.

Philbrook is an electrical buffoon.

16-conductor stranded, 24 awg or smaller, color-coded or numbered, single
shield (foil or braid), oil-resistant jacket. Please try yourself. Iíve had
no luck. Iím not saying one doesnít exit, but itís not easy to find.


And cut to order (no 100 ft rolls, pleaseĖI need only 12 feet).

Thanks.


Use what you have and place kynar or other heat shrink over it.

FYI, Alpha Cable sampled me the cable in the length I need. Great!

Did they also sample you a couple of 6 inch pieces with adhesive
lining? You were gonna seal up the ends, remember?
