Cabling Concept for Self-Service Units

      Disclosed is a cabling system, including a distribution board
which connects electromechanical and electronic components in a self
service unit, avoiding typical problems encountered with standard
cabling systems.

      The number of digital inlets and outlets of a PC used in
self-service units (about 100) are untwisted by means of the central
distribution board.  The distribution board allows an optimal fan-out
of data communication lines and voltage lines.  All cables - power
and data - are connected via zero insertion force miniplugs for ease
of handling.  The cables - shielded and unshielded - are flat cables
and highly flexible which is what makes the use of cable tracks
obsolete.
