A multicore cable has multiple cores that make it different from normal cable. In other words, a cable with more than one core doesn’t every time qualify as multicore, for instance, if a cable design has 12 cores, then it will be standardized as a 12 core cable rather than multicore. But a 16 core cable would be called as a multicore cable. Multicable cores are bundled together with a single cable and often perform distinct functions. Such cables can include data transmission, power, and AV elements within a single sheath of cable.

You will often find a multicore cable split at the end to allow every element to be linked to whatever the thing they need to be linked to perform their specific job. These cables are super versatile and can be used by distinct number of industries for countless applications. This is the reason why manufacturers of multicore cables are getting queries for custom cables via these industries.

Do you know? Multicore cables can be made from existing cables as well? You just need to twist the cores to form a single cable even if the sizes of conductors are different.


You may have seen a multicore type cable that features heavy cable jacketing to protect the cable from any damage and lower the effects of electromagnetic interference. But, manufacturing team can ignore this jacket to lower the weight of the cable. Yes, it’s a choice to add or not to add jacket sheath on cable.

For your knowledge, you can use multicore cables anywhere that might benefit from power, combining data, coaxial and AV cores into single cable.
