SPECIFYING CABLE FOR YOUR NEXT DESIGN
Designers working on products involving cables may find themselves faced with a multitude of considerations before making a cable specification. It's often a good idea to identify some of the major deciding factors before proceeding: for instance, whether the final product is destined for domestic (North American) or international use.




  CABLE ASSEMBLIES, COUPLERS SUIT FIBER-OPTIC APPS
Built on products from Canstar, the FCI Fiber Optics line of fiber-optic couplers, splitters, taps, WDMs, cable assemblies, and adapters suit applications ranging from aircraft data communications to ignition control on power generators.

  LIGHTWEIGHT CABLES SUIT SHIPBOARD APPLICATIONS
The Raychem MIL-DTL-24640 lightweight shipboard cables thwart damage from flames, smoke emissions, halogen content, and water.

  LOW-LOSS VIDEO CABLE IS HIGHLY FLEXIBLE
Initially designed for patching applications, the Brilliance 1694F RG-6/U-type video coaxial cable's high flexibility allows it to be routed through building walls and conduits.

  VIDEO COAX CABLES EASE INSTALLATION
The Brilliance 1855A and 1505A precision video coax cables feature the company's patented banana peel construction, reducing the need for an outer jacket and eliminating installation steps.

  RIBBON CABLE ASSEMBLIES HANDLE UP TO 200°C
Available in four versions, the MacroFlex Series 10/12/25/39 ribbon cable assemblies offers wire sizes from 30 to 16 AWG.

  LOW-FLUORIDE WIRE, CABLE SUIT AEROSPACE APPS
The Raychem SPEC 55 low-fluoride XL-ETFE wire and cable suit aerospace electronics applications.

  FIREWIRE CABLE SUITS MACHINE-VISION APPS
Comprising two 26-AWG data pairs and a 22-AWG power pair, the DataCELL MVC-800 high-flex 1394b cable suits machine-vision applications.

  PATCH CABLE RESISTS ALIEN CROSSTALK
The DataMax 10Gig patch cable resists power sum alien crosstalk with more than a 10-dB margin over proposed minimums in the TIA/EIA-568-B.2-10 standard.




  SELECTING POWER CONTACTS FOR POWER APPS
The increasing complexity and speed of computers are demanding very high power distribution within the circuit board. Precision-machined pins provide a secure and powerful connection for distributing high current between the PCB and the high-efficiency dc/dc converters that supply the increased power demanded by today's complex computer systems.

  CORDS AND CORDSETS AROUND THE WORLD
Designing for a global marketplace poses a number of challenges not seen when designing for marketing solely in North America. Not the least of these is confusion over the specification and selection of cordsets, whose standards vary widely from market to market.

  THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING POWER CONNECTOR
Today's power connectors are smaller than ever yet carry very high power ratings to address the massive increase in power requirements for every application.

Each edition of Connections will address one or more topics related to electrical power system components and is designed with the equipment designer who is selling products world wide. The current edition plus past editions are available.

  Designer's Reference: IP (Ingress Protection) Codes
IEC 60529 outlines an international classification system for the sealing effectiveness of enclosures of electrical equipment against the intrusion into the equipment of foreign bodies (i.e., tools, dust, fingers) and moisture. This classification system utilizes the letters "IP" ("Ingress Protection") followed by two digits. (An "X" is used for one of the digits if there is only one class of protection; i.e., IP X4 which addresses moisture resistance only.)
