Automotive flat adhesive-less cables save space

19 November 2003 Electronics Technology

Axon' Cable is a European specialist in flat cables with flat conductors insulated with polyimide, polyethylene naphtalathe and polyester. The company launched a new range of flat cables for the automotive market called Axoline. Its flat construction means that these products save around 30% of space and weight of the cabling. Axoline cables are made of flat copper conductors and a homogeneous thermoplastic insulation which ensures perfect water resistance.

Connection of equipment such as lights, sensors, switches, loudspeakers, electrical engines and multimedia requires different current rates (up to 10 A). To meet this requirement, these cables are made of copper conductors of different widths and thickness which fit most connection types. One cable can consist of conductors with different widths and thickness and can thereby be used to connect equipment with different power needs.

The characteristics of the selected thermoplastic materials ensure good performance of the cable under class 1 (80°C) and class 6 (200°C) temperatures.
