From Shielded Cable To Shielded Harness For Vehicle
Estrel Convention Center, Berlin, Germany
Exhibition Theatre Talks: Day 2

Standard automotive cable harness, manufactured from round cabling, can weight from 20 to 70 kg. It is common knowledge that with SFFC (shielded flat flexible cables) this can be reduced about 70%. How about, if we were using shielded technology, so that each harness branch would be shielded against EMI?
Together with weight savings, also space savings are tremendous. The installation work can be made easier and faster with adding installation adhesives to flat harness. This also reduces need for extra cable support structures, if vehicle body is used.
When the flat cable harness needs to connect to other flat cable (harness) a shielded flat flexible cable connector (SFFCC) allows further weight and space savings. The harnesses can utilize more modular design.

Wireless communication is increasing while, as contradictory as it seems, better quality cables demand is growing in order to implement networks. No more savings can be expected from traditional cabling which are heavy and subjected to EMI interference while the reliability of cabling is an absolute necessity since human lives and cargo have value. At New Cable Corporation we solve these problems by offering high quality reliable flat cables, lighter and more eco-firendly. Our cables have a reduced carbon footprint as less material is necessary for their production and their transportation is facilitated given their flat shape. There is also a possibility to embed antennas, LEDs, IC's and other functionality.
