With your knowledge and our know-how, Bambach Wires & Cables offers you a range of options for customised cable. The composition of a cable can be altered in order to meet your specific requirements or to meet local or international specifications, such as RoHS. Customisation does not have to be as complex as developing a new cable from scratch, it can be as simple as a modification or addition to an existing cable from our range.
The correct choice of cabling can save you time and money potentially reducing the cost of equipment down-time and maintenance, as well as protecting valuable equipment in your system. The suitability of any cable is dependent on your application. At Bambach we specialise in working with our customers to develop cabling solutions to suit their specific environment.
As the electrical requirements of any cable, such as conductor size, are often predetermined, insulation compounds and screening are the variables of suitability. Here are a few examples of the diverse insulation and screening options available to you from Bambach Wires & Cables.
|Compound||Mechanical Strength/ Flexibility||Chemical Resistance||Fire Resistance||Electrical Performance||Price|
|PVC Poly Vinyl Chloride V90-HT not V105*||Flexible||Fair||Good||Good||Cost Effective|
|PE Polyethylene Low Density Cellular High Density||Flexible, slightly less than PVC||Good||Average||Good||Cost Effective|
|PUR Polyurethane||Flexible Abrasion Resistant||Good||Flame retardant grades available||Good||5 to 8 times more than PVC|
|XLPE Cross-linked Polyethylene||Poor flexibility Very tough Resists cutting, impact and other mechanical forces||Good||Average||Excellent||50% more than PVC|
|Nylon Polyamide||Poor flexibility Very tough Excellent abrasion resistance||Good||Poor||Poor||5 times more than PVC|
|TPV Thermo Plastic Vulcanite||Flexible Abrasion resistant||Excellent||Good||Good||3 times more than PVC|
|LSHF Low Smoke, Halogen Free||Flexible slightly less than PVC||Good||Excellent||Excellent||Twice as much as PVC|
* The standard changed in 1993 renaming V105 as V90-HT due to the compound softening with continuous use at 105°C.
|Aluminium Tape||100% Coverage Good for high frequency shielding Cost effective||Poor mechanical strength|
|Braid Screen Tinned or plain copper||Excellent mechanical strength Excellent for low frequency shielding Good Flex life||
