Cable Assemblies has always being one of the most important aspect of electronic devices. Electronics devices comes in every field and its applications are available in every department of organisations. Electronic devices comes in different types most of these types are integrated into to make larger systems. The main aspects of these electronic devices is to allow the ability to easily interact with users and to successfully communicate among all the components of a device.
Coaxial Cable Assemblies
Here we will be discussing the coaxial electrical cables and its different applications relating to medical devices. Coaxial cable, or coax, is a type of electrical cable that has an inner conductor surrounded by a tubular insulating layer, surrounded by a tubular conducting shield. Many coaxial cables also have an insulating outer sheath or jacket. The term coaxial comes from the inner conductor and the outer shield sharing a geometric axis.
Coaxial cable conducts electrical signal using an inner conductor (usually a solid copper, stranded copper or copper plated steel wire) surrounded by an insulating layer and all enclosed by a shield, typically one to four layers of woven metallic braid and metallic tape. The cable is protected by an outer insulating jacket. Normally, the shield is kept at ground potential and a signal carrying voltage is applied to the centre conductor.
Coaxial cable is used as a transmission line for radio frequency signals. One advantage of coaxial over other types of radio transmission line is that in an ideal coaxial cable the electromagnetic field carrying the signal exists only in the space between the inner and outer conductors.
The microwave assemblies can be integrated into hybrid harnesses which require various configurations of wires and terminations including coaxial, high flex wires, shielded pairs, fibre optics, and power cables and connected to circular, miniature or coaxial connectors.
