Wires and cables (conductors) are insulated and protected by a variety of materials (insulators) each one having its own particular properties. The type of material used will be determined by the designer who will take into account the environment in which a control panel or installation is expected to operate as well as the application of individual wires within the panel.

These conductors must be yellow throughout the entire circuit, including wiring in the control panel and the external field wiring. • White or natural gray represents a grounded circuit conductor. • White with blue stripe represents a grounded DC current-carrying circuit conductor. International and European standards require you to use light blue for the neutral conductor. • White with yellow stripe represents grounded AC current-carrying control circuit conductors that remain energized when the disconnecting means is in the OFF position. For additional circuits powered from different sources that remain energized when the main disconnecting means is in the OFF position, you must use striping colors other than green, yellow or blue to uniquely identify the grounded conductors.

In the case of a wire connection, it needs to be a very good conductor. Good conductors include most metals. The most common conductor used in wire is copper, although you may come across others such as aluminium. An insulator on the other hand is a material which does not allow an electric current to flow. Rubber and most plastics are insulators.

When the current is switched on or off, the electro-magnetic field increases and decreases, rapidly causing, in effect, a radio signal. The effect is similar to the crackle that can sometimes be heard on the radio or television when something like a fridge switches on and off. This radiated signal can be picked up by the other wires in the system and cause interference to the normal working voltages in the system

Wiring diagrams, sometimes called “main” or “construction” diagrams, show the actual connection points for the wires to the components and terminals of the controller.

However, an exception allows you to install a splice in leads attached to electrical equipment, such as motors and solenoids.

Electrical equipment uses a wide variety of wire and cable types and it is up to us to be able to correctly identify and use the wires which have been specified. The wrong wire types will cause operational problems and could render the unit unsafe.

The control panel may be isolated but the lamp will require power so that the engineer can see while working on it.

If the screen is to be connected then make it off in the same way as for coaxial cable with a soldered pigtail and a sleeve.
