Braided cable and method of identifying braided bundle in braided cable
A cable, which can function as a mounting device for detectors, includes strands to be connected to the detectors. The strands are formed as a semi automatic wire bundle. An insulating layer is provided on a surface of all the strands in order to prevent mutual electrical conduction of the strands. A particular braided package can be specified from one of many braided bundles by using, as two indexes, a combination of colors of their insulating layers and a twist direction of the braided package.

In recent decades, there’s been a demand for creating a more detailed temperature measurement in a specific space or region in various fields. For instance, there are a demand for finely measuring a specific region of the human body (forexample, a temperature of the internal periphery of a tubular organ) during surgery or the similar to one the human body, and a demand for finely measuring a temperature in a specific space in a plastic greenhouse or the like. In this case, measurements aremade with a temperature sensor being put on some kind of apparatus such as a cable. As finer dimensions are desired, a larger number of detectors need to be mounted necessarily.
When many detectors are installed using a cable for a device, the amount of cables for receiving signals from the detectors increases and the increase in the amount of the detectors. This contributes to a bigger finished diameter and poorflexibility. Moreover, there’s a need to explicitly discriminate which core cable is connected to a detector installed at which position. In this aspect, an invention such that the identification is made on the basis of a blend of colours of corewire covering, and the like has been called in the invention described in Japanese Utility Model Application Laid-Open No. Hei. 6-5040, for instance.
