Strain Relief for In-Line Flat Cable
More reliable strain relief for in-line flat cables is provided by securing both
the approaching and departing cable segments near the connector with a
common gripping device.
Examples of dual-action strain relief devices are described below: In Figs. 1,
2 and 3, the strain relief comprises mating clamp elements 1 and 2 in which an
embossed vee on element 1 depresses both the approaching and departing
segments of flat cable 4 adjacent in- line connector 5 corresponding groove 6 in
element 2. Flexible integral end clips 7 on element 2 hold the elements together
after the cable is clamped, as seen in Figs. 1, 2 and 3.
In Fig. 4, the approaching and departing ends of cable 4 at in- line connector
5 pass adjacent to the main body 8 of the strain relief and are pierced by multiple
projections 9 that enter respective openings 10 in auxiliary plates 11 on either
side of body 8. As plates 11 are compressed against body 8, projections 9 are
upset by heat, ultrasonic bonding or latching to retain plates 11 against the cable.
