Cable colour coding – understanding DESINAPublished Jan 12, 2017
DESINA is an abbreviation for DistributEd and Standardised INstAllation technology for machine tools and manufacturing systems, and is a specification for standardising electric, hydraulic and pneumatic components and their interconnection on one common platform for machine and drive & control system build.
The coding provides a quick overview of the type of signals or power connections that are being made using the cable. This inherrently also provides a useful safety function.
