The ability to quickly and effortlessly identify cables is vital not only for project efficiency, but more importantly, safety. Choosing a suitable marker will greatly depend on the environment and situation it will be used in. The identification marker needs to be made of the right material to match the application and need.
For marking cables of varying sizes, heatshrink cable markers would be a suitable solution. Heatshrink cable markers not only work in extreme temperatures of between -55°C up to +135°C, they are also more secure as the tubing shrinks to fit around the cables.
However, if a project is time constraint, having access to an on-site cable marking machine will help greatly in reducing the need to wait for the production and delivery of labels. Instead, labels can be produced as and when required, and any amendments can also be made without delay.
