Unique Copper Wire That Can Store Electricity
 
Eliminating space-consuming batteries and storing their energy elsewhere could lead to smaller electronics and lighter and less-costly electric vehicles. In fact, researchers at the University of Central Florida have created a new copper wire that uses nanotechnology to both transmit and store energy. In effect, they created a supercapacitor on the outside of a single wire by growing "nanowhiskers" and then treating them with an alloy that transforms them into an electrode. With some additional work, the researchers believe the technique will transfer to other materials as well.

Aerial Cable Connects Overhead Power Lines
 
A new line of twisted medium-voltage preassembled aerial cables finds applications where many feeders come from a distribution substation and circumstances do not permit underground construction. The design includes three shielded conductor cables — either aluminum or copper — banded together with a messenger wire. The single-conductor cable may also come with an overall jacket.

Test Cables for High Power Transmission
 
These new low-loss test cables permit relatively high power transmission because the PTFE tape dielectric's thermal stability permits the cables to resist the higher temperatures. Rated to 18 GHz, the cables use LL335i and LL142 coax and come in a choice of stainless steel TNC, SMA, and N-type connectors plus heavy-duty booting to improve strain relief.

Ethernet Cables Flex for Moving Machine Applications
 
Moving machine applications can demand cables that withstand continuous flex or torsion. A new industrial Ethernet cable provides that flexibility, as well as EMI protection and mechanical strength, by using a proprietary shielding method that winds aluminum compound foil around individual twisted pairs. Available in two versions — one optimized for continuous flex and one for torsion — both offer a maximum data transfer rate of 10 Gbit/sec.

Tips on Telling One Ethernet Cable from Another
 
When confusion arises about whether to use Cat 5e or Cat 6 cable in an Ethernet application — especially since the signal transmission speed and delay skew on all pairs are the same — these tips will help sort out the differences. One key factor depends on whether the cable needs to work in harsh environments.

PVC for Flexible, Cold-resistant Cable Jacketing
 
Cables for wind turbines, industrial automation, and other demanding uses often require jacketing manufactured from materials that provide both high flexibility and resistance to frigid conditions. A new flexible PVC — a 73 Shore A compound — exhibits a brittle point of -65° C or less, yet is more cost-effective than the more typical thermoplastic elastomer (TPE).

Nylon Resin Protects Cable from Physical, Chemical Damage
 
A new nylon resin not only protects cables and electrical wiring from grease, oil, and gas, but it also resists impact, abrasion, and cuts. In addition, because nylon is thinner than most other insulating materials, more strands of conductive metal can fit into the jacketing without boosting its outside diameter, thereby improving the cable's electrical efficiency.

Handheld Data Cable Tester Confirms GbE Rates
 
Installers and network owners can use a new data cable transmission tester to prove not only correct copper cable installation but that the cable supports Gigabit Ethernet applications to the IEEE 802.3ab standard. Its autotest function performs both a wiremap and a data transmission test with pass/fail results saved to a PC for later report generation.

Simulator Reduces Cable Failures in Aircraft
 
Because nearly one-third of cable failures occur during installation, a new simulator can lower total cost of ownership by evaluating what effect stress will have on a cable assembly installation around the internal structure of an airframe assembly. After cable data feeds through the simulator, an analyzer tests insertion loss and VSWR and compares the results to the data gathered prior to installation.

Requirements for Road Vehicle Cables
 
ISO 6722-2:2013, available now from IHS, specifies the dimensions, test methods, and requirements for single-core 60 V cables intended for use in road vehicle applications where the nominal system voltage is ≤ 60 V DC or 25 V AC. It also specifies additional test methods and/or requirements for 600 V cables intended for use in road vehicle applications.
