02 - Precautions and Recommendations

The choice of the insulation material must be compatible with the environment in which will be installed (temperature, humidity, mechanical stress, etc.);

For applications that require resistance to moisture, use of isolation in teflon, PVC, silicone or Kapton are recommended;

Applications that require high temperature insulated wire and cable using glass fiber or ceramic fiber;

metallic braid aids in the protection of cables from mechanical actions and can be used as a shield;

flexible cables allow easier installation, reduces the possibility of damage the insulation during installation and once installed, has the same technical characteristics of the wires (hard);

Ensure correct polarity of the wires and cables for connection to the instrument, an error of reverse polarity, resulting in errors of measurement;

The wires and extension cords or compensation, should not be installed parallel or near power lines;

Using shielded cables and drain conductor to minimize interference in the signals caused by electrical fields (electrostatic noise).
