  • Cable Materials
    We sometimes forget that many cables are not designed to conduct. electrical power or signals, such as cables which support bridges, actuate. ailerons, and tow cars, for example. Mechanical wire & cable is a. big (but another) industry. There are, however, similarities between mechanical
  • Application Overview: Wire Drawing
    The process of wire drawing has in effect changed very little over the years. It uses a combination of a die and/or a series of dies to draw wire to a selected gauge. Drawn wire is in many applications beyond what we normally would think like electrical wire and TV cables. For example, springs
  • Wire & Cable Glossary
    Alternating Current â€" Electrical current that periodically and regularly reverses its direction. The frequency of the Change in flow is expressed in cycles per second (Hertz or Hz). Ampere â€" A standard unit of current. Designated as the amount of current that occurs when one volt of emf
  • Securing Cable Runs - Part 1
    When running cable and wiring in vertical spaces, or for connections that bend and flex, it is crucial that the right type of wire mesh support grip is used. Relying on electrical terminations isn't enough in these applications.
  • Overmolding Circular Connectors in Cable Assemblies
    Overmolding of cables and circular connectors provides opportunities within the interconnect industry to improve and, in many cases, reduce the total cost of ownership in cable assemblies. Cables and connectors have been overmolded in the electronics and electrical industries for just about as long
  • The Complete Guide To Electrical Insulation Testing
    WHAT IS "Good" insulation? Every electric wire in your plant - whether it's in a motor, generator, cable, switch, transformer, etc. - is carefully covered with some form of electrical insulation. The wire itself is usually copper or aluminum, which is known to be a good conductor of the electric
  • New Insulation Material Yields Smaller, Lighter, Greener Cables (.pdf)
    A new alternative wire insulation to PVC offers better performance and significantly less environmental impact. Although PVC insulation is a mainstay of the wire and cable industry due to its mechanical and electrical properties and its low cost, it presents environmental issues due to its halogen
  • An Innovative Cabling Concept Improves Reliability for Multi-Axis Stage Systems
    up to 4 separate cables (with diameters of 8 to 14 mm). And up to 27 electrical wires must be connected. Wafer inspection systems in the semiconductor industry typically consist of a stack of XYZ linear stages plus a theta rotary unit. So there can easily be perhaps 16 connectors at the final
  • Cable Testing Glossary
    The continuous electrical path between 2 or more points wherein current flows. This path has low resistance, usually less than 5 ohms. The path is constructed with metal parts, such as copper wire, contacts, terminations, splices, and mating contacts of connectors.
  • The Contact Clip, the Heart of the Mill-Max Receptacle
    The basic component used for making electrical connections in a wide array of electronic equipment is the pin receptacle. The Mill-Max pin receptacle provides a highly reliable, low resistance electrical path to terminate the pins of a device or discrete wires to a PCB or other mating apparatus
  • Secure Power with Next Generation SPDUs (.pdf)
    Computer-controlled advances in avionics, such as fly by wire, along with added onboard electrical features, including in-seat, passenger entertainment systems, are boosting electrical demand on board aircraft. Standard thermal circuit breakers and relay systems are carrying ever more current-dense
