Ribbon cables are a highly specialized product, capable of carrying not only electrical current, but also fluids or vacuum, wherein fluids are kept separate from the conductors. Wide and flat (like a ribbon), these are constructed from a quantity of individually insulated single conductors running parallel to one another, bonded into a single piece. We offer our ribbon cables in various AWG sizes and configurations ranging from 2 to 64 conductors. Like all our products, these ribbon cables offer extreme heat resistance (up to 260°C), and excellent chemical resistance as well.
A key advantage of ribbon cable is its high flexibility. While definitions of flexibility may vary, our ribbon cables have been tested to withstand 10 million repetitive bends in a lifespan.
Our high performance, extreme heat ribbon cable’s unique properties make it an excellent choice for electrical and complex equipment. It features very low off-gassing, making it well-suited to creating and maintaining the clean, high-vacuum environments the aerospace industry so often requires. Our ribbon cable has been incorporated into a variety of aerospace applications, and medical applications as well.
Thermal Wire and Cable will work with you to design and manufacture a ribbon cable tailored to meet your product needs, with low minimum order quantities on pre-made items and quick turnaround times on made to order items.
