A flat cable is the ideal choice for wiring harnesses, circuit interconnecting assemblies and other applications which require a lot of cabling to fit into a tight space. It reduces malfunctioning and wiring problems. It is also very flexible and can be bent in the thin cross-section area. If you have been looking for a flat cable, contact Olympic Wire & Cable Corp. today. We manufacture and supply the most comprehensive range of voice and data cables.

Coaxial cables are cylindrical cables that are composed of an inner core, insulator, shield and outer cover. The different types of coaxial cables include hard-line cables, tri-axial cables, twin-axial cables, semi-rigid cables, rigid cables and RG-6 cables. If you have been looking for a company that manufactures coaxial cables, look no further than Olympic Wire & Cable. We have been providing services to the wire and cable industry for more than 35 years. Call us at 937-227-7996.
A flat cable is commonly used to connect electronic components in printed circuit boards (PCBs) in electronic equipment for the automotive, medical and telecommunication industries. It is space efficient and easily fits into unused spaces, tight corners and hug surfaces. It also weighs much less than other conventional cables.

A fiber optic cable is a cable constructed of glass or plastic fibers, having the diameter of a human hair, inside an insulated casing. Fiber optic cable has higher capacity and is less expensive. Watch the video to know more.
Coaxial cable, also known as coax, is used to transmit radio frequency signals. It has lower emission losses and provides protection from electromagnetic interference, allowing signals with lower power to transmit over a longer distance. This cable is comprised of an inner core, insulator, shield and outer cover. Since all the sections share the same axis, it is called coaxial. This cable is commonly used for carrying cable television signals along suburban streets and into homes.
How is it made?
The inner core of a regular coaxial cable is made of solid copper between one and two millimetres thick. The dielectric insulator of this cable is either foam, solid plastic or an air gap created by plastic spacers. The shielding is made of copper braid and it surrounds the insulator layer. This kind of cable is usually braided so as to provide flexibility. A thin plastic layer protects the shielding.

A fiber optic cable is a cable constructed of glass or plastic fibers with the diameter of a human hair, inside an insulated casing. It is designed for long distance, very high performance data networking and telecommunication. A fiber optic cable has the capacity to provide higher bandwidth and has become the cable of choice for new telecommunication networks, especially for long distance lines. This cable is ideal for the internet, cable television and telephone systems.
A fiber optic cable carries communication signal using pulses of light generated by small lasers or LEDs. It is constructed of one or more strands of glass, which are almost the size of a human hair. The center of the strand, known as the core, provides a way for the light to travel. The core is surrounded by a layer of glass known as cladding. Cladding reflects light inward so that the signal is not lost. It also allows the light to pass through bends in the cable.
The following are some advantages of fiber optic cable over traditional copper cabling:
It has higher capacity: A fiber optic cable’s capacity to carry the amount of network bandwidth easily exceeds that of a copper cable with similar thickness.
It is less expensive: A fiber optic cable can be made cheaper than an equivalent length of copper wire. Therefore, it saves money.
It is thinner: It can be drawn to smaller diameters than a traditional copper wire.
It has higher carrying capacity: Since this cable is thinner than a copper wire, more fibers can be added to a given-diameter cable. This will allow more phone lines or more channels to go over the same cable or to come through the cable into the cable TV box.
It is non-flammable: No electricity passes through a fiber optic cable so there is no fire hazard.
It is lightweight: A fiber optic cable weighs much less than a copper wire. It also takes up less space in the ground.
It lessens the need for signal boosters: Light can travel much longer distances down a fiber cable. This lessens the need for signal boosters.
