Buying Custom Cables For The First Time? Here’s What You Need To Know!
Dec 07 2021
For anyone operating electronic and communication devices, cables are integral to powering appliances and making sure they work effectively. For the most part, all you need to do is connect different cables to power a device, but they may not always be reliable for the most critical and demanding jobs. This is where you should utilize custom cable solutions for the most complicated applications.
Euro Solutions offer customized electronic manufacturing solutions with the latest technology in preparation, crimping, and marking equipment. We provide and install high-quality, affordable cables with wire harness designs that address your company’s electronic needs. To help you better understand how custom cables can work and benefit your business, we’ll go over the different types of cables you can use and the cost of installing them. We’ll also expand on how we can ensure stringent safety requirements during the installation process.
What Are The Different Types Of Cables?
If you’re in the market for the right custom cable solutions, you can expect to choose from a wide range of products with varying degrees of connectivity. However, it’s important to have high standards and look for the highest quality custom cables. You want cables that can meet your demands with high reliability, performance, and cost-effectiveness.
During the assembly process, custom cables are made from scratch and made to meet high industry standards. They can come equipped with a wide range of connectors that support various applications and extend re-mating capabilities.
There are many types of cables you can buy and install such as RF (radio frequency), copper, fibre, and other specialty harnesses. The range of cable component types can also include flexible cables, semi-rigid cables, corrugated cables, and hand conformable cable assemblies. With RF cables specifically, they can be used for a variety of electrical devices such as TV, audio, and mobile devices.
To keep your custom cable solutions compatible with industry applications, you can select cables that are made with simplex and duplex jumpers. Falling under this umbrella of products, different cables can use simplex fibre jumpers, duplex fibre jumpers, pigtail fibre jumpers, and micro-armoured fibre jumpers. These provide optimized optical performance with strong connections and lower chances of disconnectivity. Moreover, you can ask manufacturers to customize the length of the cable to reduce congestion and entanglement with another wiring.
When you’re consulting with the custom cable manufacturer, you'll need to make sure that you understand how the production line works and the wire inventory you need. Take custom cable length specifications, for example, as you can choose between single-mode and multi-mode fibre types. You can also order the cables to be made in custom boot colours with distinct labelling and Brady identification to ensure less confusion.
Once these steps are taken, you can meet with your cable manufacturer to talk about what custom solutions work best for you and the best ways to fix problems that occur. By making sure you understand your custom cable needs, the manufacturer can meet all your technical requirements and make suggestions on what to improve upon.
What Is The Cost Of Installing Custom Cables For My Business?
Cable supplier companies and manufacturers often have set financial quotes they give out to their clients. The cost of installing custom cable solutions can vary on how much work was done and how complicated the job is.
Despite the cost of custom cables, you’re ultimately investing in better performance for your devices. Custom-made cables provide optimal performance for your applications and can carry out your business successfully. They also last longer than other equipment because the cable is made for a specific application like powering a huge network. Custom cable solutions can work well and adapt in the environment they’re functioning in and have the ratings to last in those conditions.
Custom cables also save you more money in the long run. They provide much-needed insurance for system failures and will help you avoid short stock options. At Euro Solutions, we’ll provide you with a fair price for these cables and compliance with safety requirements while installing them for your business.
How Will Euro Solutions Ensure Safety Requirements?
Our team of professional technicians strictly complies with custom cable safety regulations and industry standards. We highly recommend discussing any special cable assembly requirements prior to installation. We also take into consideration the environmental conditions that the cables need to withstand and operate in. Safety factors such as high levels of heat, moisture, and coldness are things we pay close attention to.
Another practice we apply for our custom cables is crimp compacting. To ensure wires aren’t tangled or compressed, we’ll use crimp compacting to measure the height to width ratio of the cable wire. From here, we also apply a pull test for the custom cable to determine how much force it can take. Our custom cable solutions go through this rigorous testing to ensure a high-quality product and smooth installation.
