Hi-Tech Controls wishes you a Happy Holidays!

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.

Helukabel USA Inc: The HELUWIND® WK 137-Torsion FT4

HELUWIND WK 137-Torsion FT4The high-performance cable for wind power turbines with global approvals!

HELUKABEL® offers a Wind Turbine Cable that is specially designed for torsional application in cable loops and successfully passed the challenging CSA FT4 flame test! The rigors of wind power environments make high demands on the quality of cable: mechanical load, aggressive oil, extreme temperatures. While in one part of the world wind turbine cables are required to resist extreme heat, in another ice threatens their operability. Based on over 30 years of experience in designing and producing wire & cable, the faith in high-quality raw materials and constant research & development HELUKABEL® developed a product that withstands these forces and therefore exactly meets the requirements of wind turbine manufacturers.

Properties of the HELUWIND® WK 137-Torsion FT4:

  • extremely abrasion resistant with a significantly longer lifetime than rubber cable
  • halogen-free and highly flame-retardant
  • extremely oil resistant; the cable was tested successfully for the aggressive oil effectively used in wind power turbines
  • superior twisting and flexing performance: the torsion application of +/-150° per 1m is tested in more than 16,000 cycles in the 27 ft high HELUKABEL® research tower that reproduces construction and conditions of the cable loop within a wind tower
  • UV- and seawater resistant (suitable for offshore-installation)
  • temperature range of -40°C to 90°C (UL: 80°C)
  • approvals:    UL, CSA, RoHS, CE (VDE and WTTC in preparation)Because of these multiple properties the HELUWIND® WK 137-Torsion FT4 may be applied under all climatic conditions. This provides long-term cost benefits to the manufacturers of wind turbines: it releases them from managing and stocking different types of cables for various locations of installation. In this manner the assembly of the wind power turbines is independent from its installation location.HELUKABEL® is an international manufacturer and supplier of wires, cables and cable accessories with sales of 500 Million USD in 2008. The company specializes in flexible and continuous flex cable as well as products for renewable energy applications: The first custom made cable for wind power applications was developed 15 years ago. The companies’ headquarters in Germany and warehouses in over 40 countries serve costumers all over the world. Products complying with the following standards are in stock or will be manufactured on request: UL, CSA, BS, HAR, VDE, TÜV, CCC, GOST-R.
