As the name suggests, a flat cable is a flat-shaped cable. Different from ordinary cylindrical cables, the flat structure is especially suitable for frequent bending occasions, and has special structural advantages in some application environments.
Because of the special structure of the flat cable, when the number of core wires is exactly the same, compared with the round cable, it has the following advantages:
1. The flat shape is more suitable for shuttle connection in the narrow gap space.
2. With the same number of cores, the flat cable can be bent more widely, and it can better avoid breaking in occasions that require frequent bending.
3. Under the condition that the total number of conductor cores is the same, flat cables have better heat dissipation than round cables.
4. Flat cables will not deviate laterally, and laying flat cables is more time-saving and labor-saving than round cables.
It is precisely because of the various advantages that although the cables are basically cylindrical in everyone's impression, the flat cables are not far from us. In telephones, voice recorders, computers and other equipment, flat cables are providing reliable connections.
