Medical industry has been heavily immersed with electronic and electrical engineering automated devices. The reason is that with the evolution of electrical engineering many other fields along with medical, industrial, aeronautics and airspace all of the industries containing engineering point of view has preferred digitalization. Emerging devices uses digital signal processing in transmitting and receiving data.
Successful transmission of data between the patient and the examining device creates the channel of accurate and precise measurements to be monitored. The monitoring of such signals allows the physician in medical industry to reduce the risk percentage and enhance stability and performance among the operational procedures.
Role of Electrical Cables in Medical Industry
Electrical cables and connections has made it possible for the devices to communicate within their design parameters successfully and efficiently. But the type of cables which are used in these designs matters a lot. Some electrical cables has the tendency to power the device, whereas some has the ability to transfer high-speed data communication.
Some of the important types of cables are as follows.
1) Flat Cables
Flat cables have many advantages over round flex cables. Round cables feature insulated wires in a bundle which is surrounded by several layers of other material. The bundle is usually wrapped in either a textile material or a polymer chosen to minimize frictional heating as the cable moves. A PVC jacket surrounds these layers. In shielded cables, there is an additional set of layers consisting of another low-friction wrap, braided copper, and an overall jacket of PVC or other material selected for abrasion resistance.
2) Round Cable For High Flex Applications
Round cables deliver excellent electrical, mechanical and environmental performance in complex automation environments. With a proven flex life, our cables can be reliably used in applications where other cables fail. They deliver long-lasting results for reduced downtime, maintenance and equipment lifecycle costs compared to standard round cables.
