Cryogenic Shielded Twisted Pair Ribbon Cable

  • NASA Space Flight Qualified 24 twisted pairs 40 AWG manganin wire.
  • Light weight: 28 inch lengths are less than 15 grams.
  • EMI Shielding: Vacuum deposited aluminum shield, 800 to 1,200 angstroms thick.
  • Low capacitance: between wires in a twisted pair, 5 pF/ft

    This shielded twisted pair ribbon cable is used for the transmission of electrical power and signals from varying scientific instruments for a Cryogenic Telescope Assembly (CTA) - satellite application.

Robotic Device Flexible Cable Assembly

  • Laminate construction of Kapton®, FEP, and Teflon film encasing an etched copper foil conductor. Multiple complex cable configurations are used together in this assembly.
  • The assembly includes: controlled impedance, shielded, and unshielded configurations. Cables are terminated to connectors and potted.
  • Cable operating temperature: (-) 65 deg. F to (+) 260 deg. F.

These flexible flat cables are manufactured for the SPECIAL PURPOSE DEXTEROUS MANIPULATOR (Robotic Arm) - INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION. Various shapes and lengths are designed to properly fit the SHOULDER, ELBOW, and WRIST of the SPDM. The cable harness contains from 9 to 25 layer stack ups.

Ultra Miniature Ribbon Cable
