Claim of US Patent No. 10,830,648

1. An abnormal temperature detection system that detects an abnormal temperature in a cable used to transmit power to an electrical device, the abnormal temperature detection system comprising:first and second conductors that are disposed along a longitudinal axis direction of the cable;
a plurality of temperature-responsive electronic components that are disposed along the longitudinal axis direction of the cable and are electrically connected to the first and second conductors to establish a parallel connection; and
a long flexible printed circuit board that is disposed along the longitudinal axis direction of the cable,
wherein the long flexible printed circuit board, the first and second conductors and the plurality of temperature-responsive electronic components form an electrical circuit, the abnormal temperature being detected on the basis of an electrical signal acquired from the electrical circuit.
