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:

http://www.hitechcontrols.com/cables/heat_resistant_cables/multi_core/h05ssf_h05sstf.html

Application
Multi conductor cables insulated and shielded with heat resistant silicone rubber without strain relieving elements are used at high temperatures or with contact to hot surfaces. These cables are installed for fixed installation, mechanically protected, for internal wiring of lighting fixtures in industrial application. It is recommended for the application of the apparatus which are moving during the operation with less mechanical stress.
The product is conformed with the EC Low-Voltage Directive 73/23/EEC and 93/68/EEC.

Cable Construction
• Tinned or bare copper conductor, stranded to DIN VDE 0295 cl. 5, BS 6360 cl. 5, HD 383 cl. 5 and IEC 60228
• SiR conductor insulation, cross linked (rubber compound) E I2 to DIN VDE 0207 part 20

• Behavior in fire: Test of vertical flame-propagation to DIN VDE 0482 part 265-2-1 and DIN EN 50265-2-1, not valid for the cables with polyester braiding (Type H05SST-F)
• Advantages: Minimal changes of dielectric strength and the insulation resistance also at high temperatures
• For laying as a fixed installation only in open or ventilated pipe systems as well as in ducts. Otherwise the mechanical properties of the silicon are reduced by the enclosed air at temperatures exceeding +90°C/+194°F. These cables may be damaged by pulling over sharp-edges or by abrasion during the installation and application. To avoid this, it should be treated with great care during the installation and application of the cable.
