Human life is dented tremendously with the impact in technological advancement. The rise in technology is achieved due to the emergence of electronics. Inclusion of electronics has certainly reduce the size of devices, made high speed calculations possible.
Cables which have been used for electronics application had the challenge to get smaller in sizes. Over the decades, as microchips in smartphones, laptops, LED screens and other electronics have gotten smaller, manufacturers in the technology industry have pushed the limits of smallness in semiconductors.
Microcables or PDR (Polyethylene Reduced Diameter) are loose tube fiber optic cables of reduced dimensions, and high density, indicated for sharing conduits, or when conduits are rented, and space usage is the main driver for cable design. In order to achieve the smallest diameter, most of the protections of the cable are removed, leaving an extremely thin design, suitable for blowing installation.
Micro cables assemblies are available in a range of designs to meet the needs of virtually any air-blown installation. These electrical cables have different classifications depending upon its construction. This electronic cable consists of 528 elements and featuring extremely small overall diameter of 13.0 mm/0.51’’. Nowadays, micro cables assemblies which are being manufactured includes an OD as small as 0.19 mm/0.007.
The main advantages of this type of micro cables are:
- High density of fibers per cable diameter
- Low friction coefficient, which facilitates cable installation
Micro cables in Medical Industry
These micro cables have successfully made their path in medical applications by getting adjusted in even very smaller places. For near-patient applications we offer biocompatible and lastingly serializable cables, the jackets of which can additionally be given a germ-killing effect. In skin-foam-skin extrusion, the transmission properties of our cables are optimized by means of an extremely stable and consistently structured dielectric. This makes very small diameters possible.
