Control Wiring Applications

Control wiring is a type of electrical wiring that is used to control the flow of electricity through a circuit. It is often found in industrial settings where it is used to power machines or to control the function of equipment. Control wiring is also used in commercial settings, where it can be used to power appliances or to control the lights and heating systems.

In general, control wiring is less common than other types of wiring, but it is an essential part of many electrical systems. It can be used to provide power and control signals to a variety of devices, making it a versatile tool for engineers and technicians.

Properly Installing Control Circuits

There’s nothing more frustrating than trying to figure out which wire goes where in a control circuit. It’s even worse when you discover that half of the wires are terminated incorrectly. To avoid this headache, it’s important to take the time to properly install control wiring. This means labeling each wire before connecting it, and following the correct sequence when terminating them.

It is also very crucial to understand how to accurately read wiring diagrams. Manufacturing companies almost always put wiring diagrams on their equipment so electricians can see how the control circuits are installed. Being able to follow diagrams is important for making field adjustments and new installations alike.
