  • Publication number: 20210210251
    Abstract: A composite cable includes a pair of first electric wires, a twisted pair wire formed by twisting a pair of second electric wires having a smaller outer diameter than the first electric wires, a tape member wound into a spiral around an assembly that is formed by twisting the pair of first electric wires and the twisted pair wire together, and a sheath covering an outer periphery of the tape member. The tape member and the sheath includes an inwardly projecting part formed in a spiral along a cable longitudinal direction and formed so as to enter inward at least one of a valley part between the two first electric wires and valley parts between the first electric wires and the twisted pair wire. The inwardly projecting part has a projecting length of not less than 3% of an outer diameter of the first electric wires.

  • Patent number: 10410762
    Abstract: A cable includes an assembled article formed by twisting a plurality of electric wires, a tape member spirally wound around the assembled article, and a sheath covering around the tape member. The sheath includes an injection molded body including an urethane resin. The tape member includes a non-woven fabric tape including a polyester, a polypropylene, an aramid fiber, a nylon, an acryl fiber, or a glass fiber and an air permeability defined by the Frazier method of not less than 30 cm3/cm2┬Ěsec. A twist direction of the assembled article is opposite to a winding direction of the non-woven fabric tape.
