NWI leads the industry in fast turnaround, with delivery of bulk cable
and retractile cable from Design-to-Deliver in 5 Days or Fewer.
To exceed your expectations and conform to your exact specifications, NWI offers a wide range of cable options:
Cable must be designed to minimize strain on the conductors maintain power and signal performance. Adding a strength member to the cable construction is frequently the easiest and most effective way to accomplish this objective.
Synthetic and natural fibers are the most common, including:
These fibers offer effective strength to weight ratios;
they are light and flexible. Other materials used for
strength and support include galvanized carbon steel,
carbon fibers, glass fibers and glass reinforced plastics.
The strength members are commonly placed as a center member in a round cable and as an integral (embedded in the plastic) support member in flat constructions. Strength members can be placed throughout a round cable including outside the cable core assembly in a braid, helical or longitudinal application. A jacket is typically applied over the outside strength members.
In addition to strength, flexibility, torsional balance (tendency of the cable to untwist or turn under load), cable weight, additional payload, dynamic loads, flame resistance, internal and external abrasion resistance, and temperature performance need to be considered, depending upon the application.
Breather tubes can be incorporated into cables:
The breather tube is designed for durability when subjected to cold bend and mechanical tests typically specified for the cable. The breather tubes must not be kinked. Therefore, the minimum bend radius is 10X the cable outer diameter.
