Micro FlexTM High Flexibilty, High Voltage Wire Pg. 12-13
Teledyne Reynolds has developed a range of highly flexible high voltage wires that are particularly suitable to the aircraft environment. The technology is a direct result of TRI's research into durable and flexible cable assemblies needed for Helmet Mounted Display (HMD) systems. These wires have a PFA insulation and high strand count of silver plated copper conductors that enable the wire to have high tolerance to work hardening. They have been designed to operate over a wide temperature range of -55° to 125°C at their rated voltages and at altitudes up to 70,000 feet (21,336 meters). Micro FlexTM is available as single wire, twisted pairs or as multi-core cable with or without shielding.
While PFA is difficult to bond to, with the use of TRI's proprietary surface preparations and coating processes, Ready-to-Bond™ versions are available that offer an excellent silastic bond.
Teledyne Reynolds’ unique capability to manufacture Micro FlexTM cable bundles involves the use of special winding tooling to take advantage of the flexibility of the individual wire when laying up a bundle.
