Compensating Cables

Compensating Cable Product Image

Features

Highly accurate temperature setting and control have been required along with the progress of automation in various industies. We manufacture various compensating cables of high reliability under our consistent quality management system from core wire to coating, which quickly respond to highly accurate temperature measurement and control in the chemical industry/petrochemical industry/petroleum refining/thermal power generation/atomic power generation/steel industry.
