A highly flexible cable does not guarantee a long flex life. Cables that have a long flex life are not always flexible so the design criteria may need further study to design the optimal approach.
To design a small cable construction requires the use of highly efficient dielectrics that can reduce the size of the insulation without sacrificing performance. Insulation materials that have dielectric properties that have low dielectric constants can reduce the size of cables by efficiently meeting the required transmission parameters with the thinnest insulation possible.
At Lorom, we try to make it as easy as possible for you to achieve your requirments, in all applications. We aslo try and help you understand some of the issues each cable application may face, that is why we have brought out Flex vs Flex Life paper. Please see below.
In this paper, we look at the following design elements:
- Insulation material
- Conductor construction
- Cable lay length
- Separator tapes
- Shield type
- Jacket material
