Strain relief elements

Strain relief elements are primarily necessary to catch the tension force and, in doing so, "protect" the single wires, stranding elements and the cable jacket from extreme mechanical stress.

Sensocab can either integrate these strain relief elements as netting in the outer jacket, as "core" in the centre of the cable, or as supporting element between "core" and outer jacket.

Sensocab processes the following material for strain relief elements:

  • Kevlar: an extremely abrasion-resistant, nonbreakable Aramid fibre with high tension strength. Synthetic fibres like Kevlar are much lighter than, for instance, metal supporting braids, which is a big advantage as well.
  • Mixed braids of Tinsel / Kevlar
  • Mixed braids of Copper / Kevlar
