Bundled Cable has a Case

In Electrical Construction, numbers matterWhen Estimators and Project Managers are putting together a bid for a project they only have so much wiggle room when it comes to finishing in the black as a profitable job, or falling flat on their face and finishing in the red, losing money. When companies are forced to pay extra labor costs because their installers have to pull numerous singular loose wires and cables, it lowers the projects profitability.

One way to improve this process is by utilizing Bundled cable instead of wasting time pulling single wiresBundled Cable is commonly used in an electrical construction where many insulated wire conductors need to be pulled and connected. A bundled cable is a compilation of numerous wires that are harnessed or lashed together to provide an easier and quicker installation.

Bundled Cable provides several advantages over trying to pull single loose wires and cables. For example, many applications where this would be used contain sets of wires which need to be stretched thousands of feet if fully extended. By binding the many wires and cables into a Bundled Cable harness, the wires and cables can be better secured against the adverse effects of vibrationsabrasionsmoisture, and will extend the life of the cable. .

Combining the wires into a bundle, usage of space is optimized, and the risk of shorting out is decreased substantially. Since the installer has only a single pull of cable to install (as opposed to multiple wires), installation time is decreased dramatically. With the all the man hours saved during installation, the installer is able to improve their profitability generously and can then send their team on to complete other projects instead of wasting time, going through the tediousness of plodding through pulling and connecting wires one at at time.

Where can bundled cable be installed?

When buying your Bundled Cable from Cole Wire, it will either come twisted or straight, and will be numbered, custom marked, or both for phase identification. Whether you need 2, 3, or 4 conductors for a simple pull, or you need 100 or more conductors for a larger power transmission, count on Cole Wire to provide you with quality bundled cable you need to get the job done. You can also choose to jacket your bundle with a tray rated FR-PVC, or as shown above, have your bundled cable placed within an Armor for additional protection.

The Case for Bundled Cable has been made, saving you and your customers money by reducing labor costs and by greatly speeding up the install process.
