  • Types of Flexible Cable Motion
    The flex type and application of the cable will determine how the cable is manufactured. When the cable is designed with a special flexing application, the cable has to be manufactured on a unique cabling machine that will minimize and back-twist on the cable core.
  • Thermocouple Extension Cable
    The leading supplier to Puerto Rican & Carribean power and process instrumentation industries came to us looking for a continuous 2.5 mile thermocouple extension cable to test the conditions of water surrounding a nuclear power plant. Because of the rigorous testing conditions the cable had
  • To Flex or Not to Flex: That is the Question!
    In this article we discuss the difference between a flexible cable and one that is designed for constant flexing. We also look at why making the simple assumption that a flexible cable will perform in an extreme flexing application can be a costly mistake.
  • Beware of Noncompliance! Field Modification of Cable Tray
    Since wire mesh basket cable tray was introduced to the United States and Canadian markets, designers and installers have found it a flexible and affordable alternative to J-hooks, ladder trays and conduits. In comparison to J-hooks, basket tray can support larger cable bundles with better
  • What to Look for When Specifying a Robot Cable
    As industrial robotic applications become more and more demanding, we're finding an increased need for flexible cables that can handle extremely complex movements and still deliver a long service life. When specifying cables for these types of applications, there are some important features to look
  • Doing Away With Cable Spaghetti - A One-Cable Solution for Gigabit Ethernet Cameras (.pdf)
    Baumer has introduced the proven series of TXG cameras with a Power over Gigabit Ethernet (PoE) interface. This solution combines transmitting data and supplying power into one standard network cable and helps camera users to simplify cabling and to design it in a more cost-effective manner
  • What's in Your Coaxial Cable?
    Coaxial RF cables are a standby of the RF/microwave industries, as they connect vital components ranging from smartphones and laptops for everyday life to radar and GPS for military and aerospace. For almost every application, it is challenging to transfer signals from one component to another
  • ARINC Connector Specifications
    This PIC Wire & Cable spec sheet lists PIC ARINC 404/600 and M39029 (MIL-DTL-38999 Series I, III Connector) RF Coaxial contacts for flexible RF coaxial cable, which are available from stock. Contact a PIC Wire & Cable Representative for more information at
  • Sending AV Signals Over Twisted-Pair Cabling
    twisted-pair cables provide a number of benefits to the audiovisual (AC) integrator, including availability, low cost and easy of termination, as well as being lighter, generally more flexible and easier to pull through conduit.
  • 3 Ways to Avoid Corkscrewed Cables
    There is a big difference between cables made specifically for continuous-flexing applications and regular flexible cables. Understanding the distinction is extremely important when you're choosing cables for use inside a cable carrier - or for any automated environment. If you've ever seen
  • EIA-485 Implementation for the QTERM-G70 and QTERM-G75
    EIA-485 is a popular serial communications standard that features differential signaling for robust communications in noisy environments and over long cable runs) and multidrop capability (for networking several devices together). EIA-485 networks are powerful and flexible, but careful
  • Designing RS-485 Circuits
    hardware and protocol requirements are simpler and cheaper. The RS-485 standard is flexible enough to provide a choice of drivers, receivers, and other components depending on the cable length, data rate, number of nodes, and the need to conserve power.
  • Bringing High Reliability Testing to the Battlefield (.pdf)
    measurement after measurement. Traditional flexible coaxial cables use braid/foil outer conductors and repetitive flexure causes the braid and foil strands to deform, thereby changing the impedance and compromising the phase and amplitude stability of the cable.
  • Various Interfaces for Rotary Encoders
    . The Synchronous-Serial- Interface (SSI) transmits data via a cable with just six cores (one twisted pair for data, one twisted pair for a clock signal and two cores for power supply). Benefits: The SSI transmission provides immunity to high noise. Drivers that meet the RS 485 standard allow
  • Thermography Enhances the Capabilities of Laser Transmission Welding (.pdf)
    . Using an FPA detector with a spectral sensitivity of 3.4 to 5 µm, the heat conduction during the welding process of flexible flat cables is monitored. The influence of copper parts within the cable on the welding properties is analyzed. A different setup offers the possibility to measure
  • Technology Roundup: Seeing (Electronically) Is Believing
    Retro-Reflective and Thru-Beam sensors, with choice of cable or quick disconnect. Adept Technology s Smart Camera machine control systems recently earned patents covering their application with robotics or motion mechanisms where the image processing is done within the camera versus traditional PC-based
