What is an electric cable assembly?

An electric cable assembly is a type of cable harness assembly, the cable that connects the electrical cables and wires. The cable assembly helps in connecting and organizing the electrical wires running through it, and keeps the track of the flow of electricity. Also, with the help of this, the contractors and electricians find it quite easier to keep the track of the electricity flowing and ensure the safety of the device.

To go further according to numerous companies offering electronic manufacturing services in India, the right way of cable assemblies helps from preventing the cables and wire harness from getting crossed and confused, making it completely safe for the users.

Types of Cable Assembly

There are different types of cable assembly which an electrician can consider for their device. There are many similarities among these cable assemblies along with some differences as well. Let’s go through the types of cable assembly listed below:

  1. Coaxial Cable Assemblies
  2. Flat Ribbon Cable Assemblies
  3. Molded Cable Assemblies
  4. Military Grade Cable Assemblies

1. Coaxial Cable Assemblies

Coaxial cable assemblies are the oldest form of cable assembly used for a long time now. The result of its usage is extremely appreciable. You may be having one or more coax cables in your house- they are black or white and are used to plug into your TV.

The electrical cable has two layers of insulation protection, the inner part is surrounded by a tube-shaped insulating layer and this layer is further surrounded by a tube-shaped conducting shield.

Many cable harness manufacturers also use a jacket or outer sheath for outer insulating for coaxial cables. The major uses of the coax cables include applications in aircraft, vehicles, medical equipment, radios, and cable internet.

To make the usage effective and efficient, the coax cable assemblies use a bundle of coax cables with a different number of connections, terminations, etc. And, to achieve a lead over generic cable assemblies, the skills of the custom cable assembly manufacturers are used.

2. Flat Ribbon Cable Assemblies    

This type of cable assembly has a cooler look. For the manufacturing of the flat ribbon cable assemblies, the wires are organized on a ribbon cable instead of being bundled within a sheath. Previously, these types of cable assemblies were used for the old computers but today they have been replaced by the round cable wires due to fitting issues into the cable case.

As per the majority of cable assembly manufacturers in India, the biggest advantage of the ribbon cable is the color code of each wire, with this you can also check each wire individually. This type of cable assemblies also processes mass termination with the help of special connectors. And, because of their shape they easily get fitted in narrow space, especially where the width plays an important role.

 

3. Molded Cable Assemblies

Molded cable assemblies or overmolds are the cable assemblies used for applications that demand a finishing and durability. And, so you may not come across these cables in your work-life. For instance, HDMI cables are a form of molded cable assemblies.

To form this type of custom molded cable assemblies, the connectors and wires are joined together, to further make it a perfect component. To achieve this, the cable assembly is put in a mold, later the molten plastic is injected considering the mold’s cavity space. Once cooled and solidified, it summarizes the link of the wire and the connector.

 

4. Military Grade Cable Assemblies

When it comes to designing cable assemblies for military application, they are simple, rugged, and can easily survive the harsh terrains and extreme environmental factors. Companies providing electronic manufacturing services can fabricate the military grade cable assembly taking into consideration the strict requirements of the military-grade, and a completely different set of wires and connectors are used to design this type of cable assembly. The military cable assemblies are used for tactical, marine applications, and aerospace. These types of cable assemblies are also required for airborne systems, marine systems, military ground equipment, field communication links, and remote weapon control.
