Polyurethane Jacket Offers Engineering Options
June 10, 2016 -
For applications where space is limited and minimizing transferred
mechanical stress on the interface connection is a must, polyurethane
jacketed cables can offer a better fit than those with standard FEP
Polyurethane delivers greater memory retention than FEP, which
results in minimal resistance to positioning. This allows for easier
routing and easier alignment to the mating interface. Additionally,
there is less mechanical stress applied to the interface connector.
In sensitive applications such as interfacing with a circuit board
mount connector or a light-weight device under test (DUT), the ability
to reliably align the cable to a preferred orientation minimizes
potential damage to the DUT interface.
The accompanying video clip demonstrates the polyurethane/FEP jacket "memory" difference between two otherwise identical cables.
The polyurethane jacketing option to standard FEP is currently
available for our popular True Blue® 205 cable and will soon be
available for Storm Flex® 086 cables as well. Visit the Resource Center of our Website to download a Polyurethane Jacket data sheet.
