The rounded tubular braid is designed to maximize the amount of space within a very small cross-sectional area. This enables circular wire and cable to fit within machine openings and panels, which can potentially be a problem for flat cabling constructions. The tubular braid is also traditionally used in most industrial applications like automation, manufacturing and even renewable energy. The tubular aspect of the braid also acts as a type of shield which not helps against physical harm but also EMI (Electro-Magnetic Interference). This often affects cabling products that are used within close proximity to one another, specifically within transmission applications.
