Adding Vent Tubes to UL Rated Multi-Conductor Cables

Written by Steven J Goodman
Posted on July 16, 2024 at 9:01 AM

Multi-conductor cables are one of the most common types of electrical cables used today. They are comprised of several insulated wires all bundled together with an exterior insulated jacket. Multi-conductor cables usually include shielding layers, drain wires, braided sleeves, and even filler material to maintain a uniform cross-section. One problem that exists with these types of cables is that since they are so tightly packed together, air cannot easily travel along the inside length of the cable.
