??? Please post a photo of the "multi conductor flexible strips" you want to join. Initially, I thought you were referring to "zebra strips" and your question didn't make sense. Now, it seems you may be referring to FPC (FFC/FPC) cable, but your question still doesn't make sense.thx, what glue fpr "foil" strips, like photo film?
I have successfully joined conductors together using a tin-lead alloy and heat. That may possibly work for you as well. With such a very limited description that is the best I can offer.I have a number of multi conductor flexible strips to join, 1 to 1. are there inline cliplock types, or clamps to secure them and use a silver trace pen?
do you mean butt join in the same plane with small gap, or apex and join across opposite sides of a thin, inert spacer?Use some good double-sided tape (3M UHB tape) to hold the ends down on a small square of perf board, end-to-end.
Using flux and temperature-controlled iron, solder the conductors together by lapping short bits of wire-wrap wire over the gap.
Forget the silver pen - that will not be reliable.
Totally do-able with a bit of practice.
a one off, fortunately. Zebra strip???? I'll google that, tho I wonder how to joint to it?I dismantled a very large curved screen TV a wile back , the screen was broken in multiple places from having fallen onto it's face. The quoted repair price was over three times the price of a replacement set. So now I am aware of what you are up against. Another way that might be the best method would be an intermediate circuit board with parallel traces on the same spacing as the cables, and a coupling device called a "Zebra Strip" to complete the connection. That method will not need any additional adhesive, it is reversible, and it would avoid the problem of having to somehow arrange for the conductor sides to face each other. In addition the vendor can provide a good amount of application advice.
Is this a "one-off" project? Or is it a production development? It sounds quite interesting.
It's a 4K tv,with 12 strips at the base of the digitizer. that means 320 vertical pixel columns per strip. Might have to take it to the adjacent university and have them measure a track size + one gap on a decent magnifyer. No way is my sight good enough for this. if the input connections were 45 [that looks very likely at their 1mm spacing] and the in-strip chip increased the conductors by 4x, then that would make sense. there would need to be some Earths as well.Zebra strip is used for connecting between two conductive surfaces, and it is held in place by compression. that is why you need an intermediate material with the conductors on the identical spacing. A short section of your intended flex cable would work.
