By Marine Technology Reporter

Insulated Wire (IW) announced the expansion of its capabilities to produce custom composite cables featuring low smoke/zero halogen polyurethane jackets. The company hasseen sales of these cables grow significantly – particularly in naval applications, both on submarine and surface vessels.
IW’s composite cables provide a myriad of options. Components can include individually shielded and jacketed signal transmission cables, power cables, microwave cables and fiber optic. Depending on the application, cables can be optimized to address issues such as hydrostatic pressure, tensile loads, concentrated compression points, etc. Overall shielding can be provided with ferrous or non-ferrous materials. High performance, non-metallic braids and strength members, such as Kevlar are also available. The cable, shown with this release, was produced for a submarine application and contains multiple, individual signal cables and IW’s Tuf-Flex microwave cables for use at frequencies up to 18 GHz. Water block fillers and binders are incorporated under a double braided Sn/Cu braid and polyurethane jacket. Cable withstands the anticipated environmental extremes in accordance with the method requirements of MIL-DTL-24643B par 4.8.8 and can withstand Hydrostatic pressure up to 1050psi.
