Ampetronic Flat Copper Cable is intended to be installed under carpets and
other floor coverings using adhesive installation / warning tape; it allows loops
to be installed easily and discreetly. The adhesive warning tape provides a
warning of the loop presence, fixes the flat copper cable in place, and provides
mechanical protection. The adhesive is formulated not to 'bleed' and has a
long life. The insulating layer of the copper tape is bonded to the copper for
Ampetronic Flat Cable is not suitable for connection to AC mains power
supplies or other high voltage systems. To do so could result in injury or death.
1) Check that all reels of cable are undamaged. Do not use damaged cable -
it may have a reduced service life.
2) Concrete and screeded floors must be properly sealed. Unsealed
concrete and similar materials contain strong alkalis, which can destroy the
copper cables (and the carpet!) over time. If the installer is unsure whether
the surface is properly sealed, it may be sensible to apply a PVA (white
glue) type adhesive and allow this to dry before installing the cable.
3) The floor must be dry and free from dust and grease. It may be necessary
to use a light solvent (e.g. methylated spirit) to remove any contamination
that is present.
4) The flat copper cable can then be run out along the route required:
a) Unless using adhesive backed cable, it may be best to temporarily
hold the Flat Cable in place using an occasional piece of adhesive
tape at corners, etc.
b) At corners, fold the cable diagonally over itself to form a neat bend.
c) Where it is necessary to join the cable, use this procedure:
i) For each wire end, using a good soldering iron, heat the end of the
wire, and apply solder, heating until the solder flows onto the
copper and tin the two ends (the plastic coating will melt when
heated). Then lay the tinned surfaces against each other and heat
to solder the ends together. Leave to cool. Alternatively
Ampetronic provide a crimp tool and crimps, however it is likely
crimps will be visible beneath the floor covering.
ii) Insulate the joint fully using electrical grade PVC tape.
d) Do not attempt to connect the cable to the loop driver terminals directly
as it will not make reliable contact. Instead, terminate the loop to wire
feeders as below:
i) Run the two flat cable ends from each loop or array together (on top of
each other if possible) to a location where they will not be under any
strain. A suitable location could be a standard electrical fitting box on
the wall, at floor level.
ii) Use stranded copper wire of suitable sectional area to feed the loops
from the loop driver. The two wires should be twisted together between
the driver and the loop.
iii) Prepare the flat cable ends as for jointing (see 4c). Strip the wire end,
spread the strands out flat and solder onto the tinned end. Alternatively
Ampetronic provide a crimp tool and crimps.
5) When the cable is all laid out in the correct position and jointed, test the
loops for continuity across the ends of each loop.
6) When all is satisfactory, run adhesive warning tape along the whole of
each length of flat copper cable and press down firmly. The copper should
be central under the adhesive tape. Ensure tape is between 0 & 35°C
when applying it.
7) Ensure that carpet or floor fitters are aware of the loops. It is essential that
the loops are not cut. The fitters should be made aware that they would be
responsible for the cost of repairing any damage they cause. It may be
sensible to test the loop continuity in their presence before and after floor
finish installation to avoid any disagreement.
8) The tapes are usually invisible under carpets, if used under particularly thin
floor coverings, the line of the tape could be slightly visible. In such a case,
the tape can often be installed under equalising layers or levelling
compounds; consultation with the flooring contractor is essential to ensure
compatibility of materials. Note the following properties of the adhesive /
