Running 24VDC and 220VAC Signals in the Same Cable
I wonder if the same multicore control cable can carry both 24vdc and 220vac signals?

For the output contacts of a field device we want to use a cable with 16 1.5mm2 cores. 10 signals are powered by 220 vac and four signals are powered by 24vdc circuits in the control room. I wonder if it's ok to use the wires of a single control cable for this purpose? The coil of the 24vdc relay has a nominal current of 24mA and that of the 220vac circuit is 6mA.
