Why is labelling cables important?

The process of labelling cables is a core component of cable management. Cable markers, also known as cable indents, are used to identify and label different wires within an electrical installation. This is crucial to reduce the time of repairs and maintenance and to ensure the overall safety of the installation. Without an effective labelling system, a company will not be able to identify valuable information, such as the location, length, and type of cable, creating risks to both engineers and anyone that comes in contact with that cable.


How to select the best cable marker?

When it comes to selecting a suitable cable marker there are a wide variety of products available, and it can be difficult to ascertain which is the ideal cable marking product for your needs. To pick the right cable marker for your project, it helps to consider factors such as:


  • Environmental Conditions - It is essential to consider environmental conditions when choosing a suitable cable marker. For example, if you are in contact with chemicals, water or dirt, it is suggested you use a more durable label, used to withstand the most hostile conditions, such as Stainless Steel Markers. Similarly, many industries, such as the Rail and Automobile have specific guidelines that will affect what type of label you can choose.

  • Marker Material - There are many different material options for cable markers, including Polyolefin, PVC, Stainless steel, Aluminium and Brass. Each material has unique features that help solve specific issues within projects. For example, Stainless Steel is used extensively in offshore environments where you need maximum resistance to weathering and corrosion.

  • Style of Cable marker - At Express Electrical we offer many different types of cable id tags. The type of marker you choose will depend on the environment it needs to perform in, the information you need to print on it, and on the scale of your marking requirements. Small jobs can be easily marked on site with manual markers or Handheld Printers. For larger jobs it will be much more efficient to use a Desktop Printer. or to have your markers produced by our in-house marker service.
