Flexible Cable is a cable that possesses flexibility for challenging cable positioning. Alpha Wire defines “flexibility” as “that quality of a cable or cable component which allows for bending under the influence of outside force.”
Flexible cables, or ‘continuous-flex’ cables, are cables specially designed to cope with the tight bending radii and physical stress associated with moving applications, such as inside cable carriers.
As a result, specialized, highly flexible cables were developed with unique characteristics to differentiate them from standard designs. These are sometimes called “chain-suitable,” “high-flex,” or “continuous flex” cables.
A higher level of flexibility means the service life of a cable inside a cable carrier can be greatly extended. A normal cable typically manages 50,000 cycles, but a dynamic cable can complete between one and three million cycles.
