Product Announcement from Powell Electronics, Inc.
Your system should be built around performance, not around your cables.
The 3M Internal Twin Axial Ribbon Cable SL8800 Series is a new ultra low-profile, high-speed, high signal density cable. The products in the SL8800 Series are only the first of a new family of high-performance cables from 3M.
Currently available in four-channel 100 ohm 30 AWG versions, the SL8800 Series Cable is the optimum solution for space-constrained systems. This cable is unjacketed, extremely thin, very flexible and can even be folded with minimal loss or performance impact. Some high density offerings sacrifice performance to achieve density. For example, flex circuits are often used for tight packaging requirements, but flex circuitry can be cost prohibitive and can have limited bandwidth. SL8800 Series Cable can route along the sides of cabinets and through narrow openings in densely packaged equipment with little to no effect on performance.
- Ribbon Construction
- Internal cable construction is extremely thin
- Lower profile than other similar AWG twin axial cables
- Allows for dense routing, providing more routing options within a case
- Handle four pairs simultaneously during termination, identical channel lengths, reduced skew
- Save time and cost during assembly
- Allows for extremely tight bend radii
- Minimal performance impact from folding, enabling unique packaging configurations
