Options to Consider For a Custom Cable Assembly

Posted by Mona Weiss on May 1, 2018 1:36:59 PM

If you are in need of a wire or cable assembly that is custom made for your specific requirements, there are a number of options to consider. On the surface it's pretty simple - You have a wire, and then something on the ends of the wire (or not). But there are tons of options to customize and get it just right for what you need. 

Environment:  Will the assembly be used in conditions that are wet? Hot? Will it be exposed to fuel or other HAZMAT materials?  Flexibility: Do the wires need to be very flexible? Do you want coiled wires instead of straight wires?  Colors: Do you need the wire to be a particular color?  Length: How long does the cable need to be?  Terminations and Connectors: There are tons of options to consider for the cable ends. You can have everything from a bare wire, to lugs, clips, connectors, keyed, VGA, etc. Maybe you need hardware that is custom-molded.  Insulation: Does the wire need to be insulated? What type of coating do you need? What about the terminations – do they need to be insulated as well?  UL Listed: Do you need UL listed parts?  Wire Gauge: What size wire do you need?
