Designing a custom cable assembly can be a complex task for electrical engineers.
Whether you’re looking to use a coaxial cable, an RF connector, or another type of cable, there are many factors to consider in order to ensure that the cable meets your system’s requirements and performs optimally.
In this article, we’ll guide you through the process of creating a custom cable assembly solution, from planning to execution.
Why Use a Cable Design Tool?
It is important to use a tool that can save your work and simplify the design process.
A cable design tool can help you to quickly and easily determine the specifications and requirements for your cable, including the type of cable, the connectors, and the length of the cable.
Step-by-Step Guide to Designing a Custom Cable Assembly
Step 1: Plan
Determine the Purpose of Your Cable Assembly and Choose the Right Connector and Cable.
The first step in creating a custom cable assembly solution is to determine the purpose of the cable assembly and choose the right connector and cable. Consider the requirements and specifications of your project and select the best type of connector and cable to meet your needs.
Step 2: Use a Cable Design Tool
To make the design process easier and save time, it is recommended to use a cable design tool. There are many free cable design tools available online, including Pickering Connect’s Cable Design Tool. With this tool, you can quickly and easily create a design that meets your specific needs, and save your work for future reference.
Step 3: Review Your Design
Once you have completed your design using the cable design tool, review it carefully to ensure it meets all your requirements and specifications. Make any necessary modifications to the design before proceeding to the next step. Feel free to use our free technical consult for this phase.
Step 4: Order the Cable
Download your design and send it over, we can help review it and make sure it fits your needs and our factory’s abilities, we’ll then process your order and get working until the cable is in your lab!
Step 5: Get it, and test it!
Finally, test the cable assembly to ensure it is functioning correctly and meeting all specifications. If necessary, get in touch with us and we can help in the implementation.
