Using an Analog Signal/24vDC Binary I/O Cable


Thread Starter


Can i use 18 AWG 600V cable instead of 18AWG 300V cable for PLC panel internal wiring for analog signal (4-20mA) and binary (24VDC), 0.5A signal?

Is there any technical deficiency of utilizing 600V 18AWG cable instead of 300V 18AWG cable?

Please advise
No, the extra voltage rating in itself won't cause any problems. You might have more trouble finding a cable shielded to your needs and it will take up more volume due to the thicker insulation, but other than that you'll be fine.
