Abstract

Contemporary daisy-wheeI printer carriages call for all electromechanical components to have approximately 50 inch leads that are hand fed through a stability spring and ultimately terminate at the mother board, In place of this arrangement, a flat cable assembly 10 is attached at one end to a connector on the carriage assembly 12 and at the other end to the mother board (not shown). A stability spring 14 is juxtaposed with the cable 10 to prevent undesirable whipping action during carriage movement.
