Flat Cables Can Withstand 50 Million Flex Cycles

Putting the technology of low density jacketing to work, this new series of flat cables can stand up to 50 million or more flex cycles. Fluoropolymer insulation is said to help keep dimensions and weight of the cables as low as possible, enabling the HPF tailor-made flat cables to handle high-flex assignments in confined spaces. And customized hybrid designs allow for integration of a wide range of components, from discrete wires, shielded twisted pairs and diameter-reduced coaxials to fiber optic components, air hoses for pneumatics and power pods. An added feature of the HPF series is their ability to be used in clean room and high vacuum environments. Typical applications include SMT pick-and-place, material handling, robotic systems, and medical diagnostic equipment. Tailor-made HPF flat cables are available for minimum orders starting at 300 feet. For more information and pricing, contact LEONI TAILOR-MADE CABLE, Troy, MI. (866) 536-6422.
