What is Multiconductor Cable?

Multiconductor is a term used to describe a wire or cable that carries more than one conductor. Usually they have between two and twenty-five conductors although some cables are designed for specific purposes and can far exceed that number. The term multiconductor is actually a generalized term that can be used to refer to a wide range of cables, however, this page is dedicated to the most common type of multiconductor cable available. Multiconductor cables are commonly used for control purposes. Things such as remote signaling, communications, and broadcast applications to name a few. These cables are manufactured to meet the latest UL, CSA, and NEC requirements. So now that we have a basic understanding of what we mean by multiconductor, let’s take a look at the two main types you’ll find.
