Flat Cable


Every day we go through the motions: snooze the alarm – twice, perform all the hygienic tasks we learned as children and grab a coffee to go as we make our way to work. Once we reach the office, we grab another cup of coffee and begin answering emails. The day goes on and you successfully complete your assignments, so you begin your commute back home to spend time with family or to go to happy hour with a few friends.

Whatever your day looks like, there is a system you follow, and if your system is faulty – say the office coffee pot is broken – then your day doesn’t run as smoothly.

Much like conveyor systems, you need proper functionality to accomplish daily tasks. This is why it’s so important to install the proper equipment. When it comes to conveyor systems and trailing cables for crane installations, you need oil resistant cables with small bending radii and high flexibility.

Expert and proper installation is important to ensure accurate operation, so please contact us to request the corresponding instructions.

Hi-Tech offers the following four Neoprene and PVC flat cables:

NEO-Flat-C
NEO-Flat
PVC-Flat-CY
PVC-Flat

Intrinsically Safe Cable

Intrinsic CableWhen you hear hazardous what do you picture? Perhaps a fire or an explosion of some sort, but what about the sign that told you to stay out? You know, the bright yellow one that warns you of the toxic atmosphere you’re about to enter?

The bright blue jackets on our electrical cables for intrinsically safe circuits act in a similar way. They indicate a separate power circuit for hazardous type -i- that does not allow applications of green-yellow protective conductors. The intrinsically safe design is a technique that limits the energy below what is required to ignite a hazardous atmospheric mixture. This special jacket is oil, petrol and flame resistant and can be installed in damp or dry environments. That being said, installation is not permitted in open air or underground.

We offer three intrinsically safe cables at Hi-Tech Controls with a Flexible Blue (RAL 5015) PVC Outer Jacket for Hazardous Areas.

OZ-BL: Bare copper fine wire conductors, Black cores with white continuous figure imprint to DIN VDE 0293 without earth core, No wire screening

OZ-BL-CY: Bare copper fine wire conductors, Black cores with white continuous figure imprint to DIN VDE 0293 without earth core; Braided tinned copper wire screening with 85% coverage

OB-BL-PAAR-CY: Bare copper fine wire conductors, Color cores according to DIN 47100, Braided tinned copper wire screening with 80% coverage

High Flex Cable for Drag Chains

Drag chains, or cable carriers, are designed to protect cables on automated machinery, but what good does it do if the cables they’re protecting can’t handle the stress required for permanent operations in machinery? That’s like repairing the roof of your house while termites picnic on the bearing walls. What good is the roof going to be when the damaged infrastructure causes the house to collapse?

The same logic can be applied for applications that require extremely high processing speeds that need flexible cables with high mechanical stress resistance including export-oriented mechanical engineering, machine tools, production lines, robotic systems and systems engineering. Our SUPER-PAAR-TRONIC-C-PUR and SUPER-PAAR-TRONIC 340-C-PUR cables are developed with TPE and polyolefin core insulation, respectfully, and an adhesion-low & cut-resistant PUR-outer jacket. These cables guarantee reliable function and are ideal for multi-shift operations.

Silicone Cables

We’ve all been subject to Mother Nature’s mood swings when it comes to weather.  One day it’s 76° and sunny, then, not even twenty-four hours later, it’s hailing. It’s a good thing we live in a time where technology can protect us from such extremes. Take our Silicone Cables, for example. They have great environmental resistance properties and are heat resistant for permanent temperatures +356°F and short term temperatures +428°F. They can also be used at temperatures as low as -76°F.

All silicone cables are halogen-free, but their structures vary to offer extra protection where you need it:
FZ-LSi / FZ-LS / Neon Light: ignition cable
SiHF: multi conductor, flexible
SiHF/GL-P: multi conductor, steel braiding
SiHF-C-Si: multi conductor, copper shielded, EMC preferred
SiHF UL/CSA: multi conductor, 302°F, 600 V
Si HF-C-Si UL/CSA: multi conductor, copper shielded, EMC preferred, 302°F, 600 V
SiF / SiFF: single conductor, hook-up wire
SiF /GL, SiD, SiD/GL: single conductor, hook-up wire
THERMFLEX 180 EWKF: multi conductor, H05SS-F
THERMFLEX 180 EWKF-C: multi conductor, copper shielded, EMC preferred, 356°F
UL-Style 3135: single conductor, 392°F, 600 V
