Planar Cable

Planar cables are selected for their high electrical performance, ease of termination, low profile, flex life, and space and weight savings in applications. Bay Associates' line of planar cables offer a variety of cabling solutions including parallel bonded, twisted to parallel, round to flat, woven, shielded and jacketed. Custom cables can be engineered by Bay Associates' team of wire and cable experts including unique configurations, and multi-function cables.

Features

  • Easy lead identification and cable termination reduce installation costs
  • Improved space and weight savings using flat ribbon configuration rather than a bulky wire harness package.
  • Configurations for flexibility, space savings, durability, and resistance to harsh chemical and temperature environments.
  • Cabling solutions include parallel, twisted to parallel, round to flat, woven and shielded.
  • Uniform spacing of conductors allows for matched electricals and reduced cross talk.
