In the same way that our design guides empower your engineers to accurately and completely specify your cabling project, our white papers address specific solutions for or more information about cabling or cable assembly issues. Concrete topics like whether or not to apply tinning, how to account for lost motion, and how to choose the best insulation material for your project are thoroughly addressed without any of the sales hype found in other industry white papers. Checklists and comparison tables are abundant in our white papers, making them invaluable resources for researching the design and specification of cables and cable assemblies.
Synopsis: Cable insulation is a non-conductive material that separates the conductive material within a cable from other conductive materials and from the environmental effects that would degrade the conductor’s performance if exposed to them.
In a comprehensive table, various cable insulation materials are compared for their mechanical and electric properties. Common … Read More
Synopsis: Whether you manually design and assemble a wire harness or automate these processes with advanced electrical and mechanical design software and product data management systems, understanding harness design requirements will ensure the success of the finished harness. In this brief white paper, we’ll look at what you need to … Read More
Synopsis: Mechanical control cables provide a simple, lightweight, economical, and reliable way to activate throttles, latches, gas springs, electromechanical devices, and many other mechanisms. The basic design of mechanical control cables features a movable core that’s free to travel axially inside a conduit. Actuating a lever or similar device at … Read More
