Design Features That Signal The Need For Custom Cable Assemblies
The demand for smaller and more compact types of systems in everything from heavy equipment through to home appliances creates the need to find better ways to design the working and operational aspects of the product.
While it is relatively easy to downsize components to suit the need for more compact systems, there is still a need to run cables and wiring to provide the electrical current and controls required for operation. With cutting-edge components and new device options, working with a company to design and manufacture custom cable assemblies can help to streamline the cable and wiring system without the need for modifications to the design.
Selection of Cables and Connectors
Involving a company that can provide design services for custom cable assemblies as early in the process is an advantage to the OEM. These companies can provide insight into cable and wiring options that are durable, practical, and cost-effective. As they specialize in this area, they are also aware of any regulations or requirements for cabling and wiring in a specific industry.
By choosing the right options in cables, wiring, and connectors, the overall assembly can be downsized without any concerns about electrical interference, cable or wiring damage, or other types of factors. Choosing easy to attach and detach connectors makes it a simple process to install the custom cable assemblies into the device or equipment.
Less Waste and Human Error
Installing a full cable assembly as a “drop in” type of component eliminates human error in the wiring process. It also ensures less waste with incorrectly measured and cut cables, poor attachment of connectors, or even running the cables in the wrong location, leading to performance problems or system failures.
Custom assemblies for cables are well-worth considering with any type of equipment. They are effective, easy to install, and can end up saving the OEM money.
