  • Flexing cable lineup

    If you're going to offer continuous flex cable, the track and accessories to carry it is a must.

    Cable with bigger conductors for power loads would be good too, maybe up through 8 or 10AWG, but just the control cable and track would make a viable offering. Ethernet flex cable would be a good add as well, especially with a 600V rating.

    I'd also recommend extending your line of general-purpose non-flexing multiconductor control cable below 18 AWG, maybe down as small as 22 or 24 AWG.

    I'd also like to see this, 22AWG especially.

      McMaster Carr has a good selection and tool for track. You enter in your dimensions and conductor size and it helps you to determine what size track you need. I always go a little bigger. the more room for the cables the better they work in the track. Too tight and the wires start to pull.
