What is Triboelectric Noise
Triboelectric noise is generated by movement in the cable's components, resulting in a static or piezoelectric effect.
Mechanically-induced noise is a critical and frequent concern in the use of guitar cords, microphone cables, medical cables and other cables that may be flexed while in use.
Fortunately, both EMI/RFI and noise problems can be solved with the right cable shielding solution.
When two materials are rubbed together, an electrical charge is generated between them and this electrical phenomenon is known as the
triboelectric effect. Triboelectric noise is the internal noise generated by the flexing or vibrating of the cable. Such cable movements result in
friction between the cable's various conductors, insulation, and fillers. In turn, this friction generates the surface charge which translates into the triboelectric noise.
Simply flexing or twisting a traditional cable can generate voltage spikes with magnitudes in the tens of millivolts. The noise is due to
triboelectric charging of the insulator materials, which act as capacitors and store the charge. Adding noise filters to cable assemblies has
only a limited potential in dealing with triboelectric noise. The real answers for controlling the triboelectric effect lie in the design and
manufacturing of the raw cable and wire. The size of the triboelectric voltage spikes in the cable is very much a function of the materials selected.
We manufacture cable assemblies with low triboelectric noise bulk wire and cable. Thus, there can be no relative movement of cable layers,
no "flex induced" layer friction and, as a result, no triboelectric noise. We are very proud to know that medical diagnostic devices using our
cable assemblies can greatly contribute to making more accurate diagnosis.
