Flat TPS cables are electrical cables that are made up of an uninsulated earth conductor between two parallel flat conductors. These flat power cables are also called flat twins or earth cables.
TPS (thermoplastic-sheathed) cables are made of a tough outer coating of PVC, and chloride thermoplastic. These flexible flat cables are usually used in both commercial and residential wiring for lighting and power circuits....
Our JinHang flat TPS cables have various size variants:
Here are some benefits of TPS flat cables:
In general, TPS flat cords are more affordable than other types of electrical cables. So these flat TPS cables are a good option for your lighting and wiring needs.
The shape of these flat cables allows you to reduce clutter and save space, which is useful in certain places where multiple flat cords are used simultaneously.
Easy to install:
The design of flexible flat cables is easy to install, especially in narrow or tight spaces where the usually round cables may be hard to fit.
Flat power cables are durable and created to last long. These flat TPS cables can withstand hot temperatures and be exposed to different elements.
Flat TPS cables are used for a variety of electrical applications, including:
- Appliances: Flexible flat cables are usually utilised to power appliances like fans and lamps.
- Electrical wiring in homes and buildings: Flat power cables are also used for power and lighting circuits in residential and commercial buildings.
- Automotive industry: Flat TPS cables are also used in the automotive industry for wiring harnesses and other electrical applications.
- Industrial applications: Flat cables can be used in various industrial applications, such as machine wiring and control panels.
- HVAC systems: TPS flat cords can also be used in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems for controlling and distributing power.
- Audio and video equipment: Flat power cables can also be used to wire audio and video equipment, such as speakers and amplifiers.
When buying flexible flat cables, it's essential to consider a few key factors to ensure that you are choosing the right product for your needs.
Here are some important considerations to keep in mind when buying flat power cables:
You should consider the length of the flat cable you need for your project. Measure the distance between the device or fixture that you need to connect and its power source. Choose a cable that is long enough to reach without any strain.
Voltage and current rating:
Ensure that the flat TPS cable is rated for the voltage and current that will be running through it. Choosing a cable that is not rated for the intended voltage and current can result in damage to the cable and create a safety hazard.
Also consider the gauge or the thickness of the flat cable and its capacity to handle the electrical current. Pick a cable with the appropriate gauge for your application.
Check the insulation material used on the flat power cable. The insulation should be durable, able to withstand the environmental conditions where the flat cable will be used, and provide enough protection against electrical shock.
Compliance with standards:
Check whether the flat cord meets relevant industry standards, such as those set by regulatory bodies like the Australian Energy Regulator (AER), to ensure compliance with safety and performance requirements.
