Hybrid Cable Combines Multiple Functions in One Design

13 June 2016

Molex, LLC has introduced Temp-Flex® Multicore Cable, a customizable, multi-conductor hybrid cable. The cable uses Temp-Flex and Molex core competencies to combine fine wire, coax, twinax, triax, twisted pair, tubing and strength members in a single high-flex cable solution. A multifunction design combined with high-performance construction allows Temp-Flex Multicore Cable to meet data, signal and power requirements in harsh environments and under critical conditions.

Commercial applications for Temp-Flex Multicore Cables include audio/video, entertainment, in-flight entertainment and instrumentation, while medical applications focus on diagnostic, imaging and surgical equipment. The cables are also ideal for aerospace and defense applications such as control centers, instrumentation, military vehicles, missiles, radar, satellites and vision systems.

Jackets for Temp-Flex Multicore Cables include ETFE, FEP, PFA, THV, PVDF, Polyurethane and others. Applicable operating temperatures are dependent on jacket material: FEP jackets offer a range of –65 to +300° C; polyurethane jackets offer a range of –30 to +75° C. Jackets made from a new blended material have applicable operating temperatures up to 300° C.
