  • Patent number: 10438724
    Abstract: A data cable for high-speed data transmission at signal frequencies of >10 GHz includes at least one core pair which is surrounded by a film-shaped pair shield having an inner shielding film and an outer shielding film which, are in electrical contact with one another and in which the inner shielding film is wound around the core pair. By virtue of this measure, an undesired resonance effect is avoided which, in previously wound pair shields, has not allowed use for relatively high signal frequencies. At the same time, an undesired common-mode signal, which would occur in the case of a longitudinally folded shielding film, is thus suppressed.

  • Patent number: 10424421
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a flat cable, which comprises signal unit sets and the insulating layer which wraps and fixes the signal unit set. The signal unit set is formed by at least two signals units arranged substantially on the same plane at an interval or side by side. The left and right sides of the signal unit set are directly wrapped by insulating layers. The insulating layer is formed by splicing and bonding at least one insulating film, and the splicing points at two ends of the insulating film are located on the upper side or the lower side of the signal unit set. In the flat cable of the present invention, the length of the overlapping portion can be set as required, effectively preventing the phenomenon such as insulating film tear and short circuit caused by insulating film tear.

  • Patent number: 10395798
    Abstract: The present invention provides an insulated wire having a heat-resistant insulating layer, wherein heat-resistant particles are contained in the insulating layer, and the heat-resistant particles are densely dispersed in a surface region of the insulating layer. For example, the concentration of heat-resistant particles included in a layer thick portion of 0.5 ?m from the surface of the insulating layer is two times the concentration of heat-resistant particles included in a central portion of the insulating layer. An electrodeposition liquid used to form the insulating layer is formed by dispersing the heat-resistant particles in a suspension in which resin particles are dispersed, the viscosity is 100 cP or less, and the turbidity is 1 mg/L or more.

  • Patent number: 10381132
    Abstract: The current invention relates to self-supporting cables that often are aerial mounted between cable fixing points (800) and where the conductors in the cables act as the bearing elements. In this type of cables, slip-page between the surfaces of different layers in the cable is undesirable. On the other hand, it must be possible to easily bend the cable, even for larger dimensions. Both these requirements are difficult to meet with the solutions from prior art. The present invention overcomes this by introducing an intermediate layer (130) in the cable (100) located between and adhered to the surfaces (112, 121) of the layers and having a frictional inner structure allowing the two surfaces (112, 121) to slip relatively each other in longitudinal direction enough so that the cable (100) can be bent but prevents the two surfaces {112, 121) from slipping in response to an inwardly directed radial pressure force (F) at the cable fixing points (800).
