Custom cable design

Custom cable design requires detail when designing with our team of engineers. We work with you to optimize your design, giving you the best match of electrical, mechanical, and environmental properties.

Here are some items to consider when determining the design of your custom cable: Wire Size, Stranding, Plating, Insulation, Temperature Rating, Voltage Rating, Number of Conductors, Colour Code, Filler, Binder, Shield, Jacket, Printing, Overall Construction Details, Special Requirements (Critical Requirements, Put-Ups, Reel, Special Packaging, Minimum Length).

*The turnaround time will be 48-72 hours. Some quotes may take longer to complete due to the level of complexity involved.
