Flexstrip jumpers can be used in nearly any device that uses a printed circuit board (PCB). They are offered as electrical connectors in a variety of styles depending on application and operating conditions. All the connectors are flat, and designed to withstand thousands of flex cycles. The jumpers are suitable for all PCB’s, easily installed without crimping or cutting. Assembly is simple by soldering the pcb connector ribbons at their respective terminals. This has an advantage over standard point to point wiring due to the lack of stress points in the electrical connection. Flexstrip jumpers will absorb energy and bounce or vibrate rather than cracking.
When two printed circuit boards are connected via a jumper connector, they are not limited to a single plane. This gives designers more flexibility when deciding where to place adjacent PCB’s and can ultimately lead to a more compact device. Point to point soldering of printed circuit boards offer too many potential points of failure in electronic devices that are subject to a large amount of outside forces. A stress crack in a solder connection is the last thing a pilot wants to worry about onboard his helicopter’s navigation system. A savvy engineer would choose Flexstrip jumpers to withstand the nonstop vibrations in an aircraft.
Flexstrip jumper cables can be used in automotive, industrial, or military applications. There are several materials to choose from depending on application. Polyester, Kapton, and Teflon are three of the materials offered, and each has its advantage over the other. Polyester is the most economical, while Teflon would be the ideal choice in a humid climate. Kapton performs the best in high temperature situations.
