Default 0-10v control wiring

What does everybody use to control their 0-10v systems. I've seen 12-2 MC that includes a shielded pair (gray/purple). Has anyone seen a Romex-type like this? Or just the shielded gray/purple? I've used 0-10v once before, but not on this scale. I probably have about 50 wires to pull, some up to 100'. Any info/advice would be appreciated.

Typically that is spec'd by the design engineer.
I've used mostly Belden 18/2 shielded cable...

We've used 12/4 MC for this a few times, makes wiring pretty simple and only one cable to pull.
Never any issues with the cables not being shielded either.

Typically you would use two #16/20c teck control cable(blue jacket) and maybe one #16/12c of the same. if you have 50 wires to run. If its not control wiring and Instrumentation equipment then use #18 awg in a grey jacket teck. Or spec out multiple conductor belden cable not armoured with or with out the shield. But prob with the shield. It depends on what the enviroment is and what you are controling.

I pulled them separate. I did not want to have the theater people blame me for anything later and have to redo any work. I had two conduits for control. They stoped at JBs. From the JBs I pulled 16/2 or 18/2 shielded. (Some runs were 150' + out of the junction box)
