CUSTOMISED CABLE SOLUTIONS
WHAT WE MEAN
Customised cables can cover a wide range of services, from designing a wholly bespoke cable against a unique specification, to adapting and changing existing cables to improve efficiency or overcome the limitations of a particular installation. Cable harnesses with high quality terminations, designed to your precise requirements, are also available as a cost-effective and time-saving pre-installation solution.
With all our custom cable solutions, after our experts have confirmed the cable design, we can have the cable manufactured in low minimum order quantities on short lead-times, have it rigorously tested in our in-house laboratory to confirm performance, and then delivered to you ready for installation. Where required, we can also support you with any additional third-party approvals necessary for the cable, with the accredited facility being able to demonstrate compliance through its testing regimen.
Our technical experts have experience creating custom designed cable solutions for highly regulated organisations .
OUR CUSTOM CABLE SOLUTIONS INCLUDE:
Custom designed cable
Fully bespoke design developed by our technical experts against a unique application's specification
Used in many industries and particularly beneficial where there is a common and aggressive environment form which to protect the cable, or to reduce installation time (eg: cable pulling) and complexity. Composite cables may be manufactured by laying (twisting) complete cables of different or similar designs together, or placing the assembly under a collective armour layer and/or a final collective sheath.
Braiding, armouring and electrical screening
These options can place additional mechanical / electrical / EMI layers on an existing cable. Mechanical protection can be provided by adding either a flexible galvanised steel wire braid or simply more steel wire armour. Protection from electrical interference can be achieved by adding a metallic screen, such as a tinned copper braid or an aluminium/polyester foil.
Oversheathing and Resheathing
Whether extruding a new sheath over an existing product or resheathing in order to maintain the original overall product dimensions, this customisation can offer protection against environmental damage and enhance product performance to support a long service life.
Oversheathing often involves a sheath colour change whether for cable identification or to provide additional environmental protection and UV stability. For outdoor use, cables can be oversheathed with weather-resistant materials such as Polyethylene (PE) and Polyurethane (PUR) making them suitable for use in ducts and harsh environments. The colour change options are extensive.
