Power Leads and Flexible Interconnects
For power distribution applications that require high temperature wire with maximum flexibility, New England Wire’s general-purpose power leads and flexible interconnect wires can be manufactured using a range of wire gauge sizes, strand constructions, conductor materials, wall thicknesses, shields and jackets.
We are a world leader in the manufacture of custom ultra-flexible interconnects offering conductor sizes from micro-miniature up to 250 MCM. These include a range of rope lay constructions using bare as well as tinned-, silver- or nickel-plated copper, and high-strength alloys. Most commonly supplied in UL and CSA recognized PVC insulated constructions, our custom flexible interconnects combine our ultra fine-wire stranding technology with thin walls of nylon, polyethylene, polyurethane, polypropylene, polyester, silicone rubber, PVC, FEP, ETFE, PFA, and TPE. These are used in speaker interconnects, biomedical instruments, computers, and other products requiring miniature conductors with superior flexibility.
In addition, New England Wire Technologies has developed special-use, proprietary power cables. Hyflex™ Power Distribution cables are specifically engineered to handle the high voltage and temperatures inherent with today’s diesel hybrid vehicles. Independently tested to meet the requirements of SAE J 1654 and 1127, Hyflex™ cables are rated for use at 125˚ C and up to 600 volts.
COLDflex Ground Cables™ were developed using a high performance compound specifically formulated for flexibility in power distribution applications during cold weather…down to –40˚ C, is UV resistant and has an operating voltage up to 5kV.
