The Importance of Shielding in Cable Assemblies

Cable assemblies are utilized in a variety of industrial applications, which can exhibit electrical noise. Electrical noise can lead to Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) in cable assemblies. When a cable assembly receives or generates electromagnetic interference, it can cause poor signal quality and loss of data. It can also disrupt the function of electronic equipment and…

What are the Types of Cable Shielding Commonly Used?

The growing complexity of modern electronic and electrical systems, along with the ever increasing distance signals are required to travel, have increased the electrical interference in cables.  In order to diminish the effects of signal interference in cables appropriate shielding is vital. Types of Signal Interferences The primary function or the shielding is to limit…

Quality Harness and Cable Assembly for Demanding Industrial Applications

Cable harnesses and assemblies support a wide range of applications and industries. These assemblies and harnesses can be custom designed and manufactured, to meet the unique demands of each application. This has allowed researchers and collaborators to produce cable assemblies for the most demanding industrial systems and processes such as automation control and drive systems….

What Causes Intermittent Failure in Cable Assemblies?

In the earlier blog post, we explored the testing processes for intermittent failure. The two main types of test equipment discussed were PC-based and those operated via microprocessors. In this post, we will explore the causes for intermittent failure. Contact-to-Contact Failure The following contact-to-contact failures can be seen in cable assemblies: When tin or lead…
