What is a cable
assembly or an assembled cable?
A cable assembly is a ready-to-connect cable that has already been fitted with a connector at one or both ends. An assembled cable is ready for use immediately and can be connected directly at the intended location. Process steps, which are sometimes time-consuming, such as stripping the cable, stripping the cores, crimping the conductor and final connector assembly that would otherwise occur on site are completely omitted.
Cable assemblies are not only produced in the factory by a cable manufacturer, but are also thoroughly checked. Standardised production steps ensure that cable assemblies meet the same quality criteria. Unlike cables that can be assembled by ourselves, there are considerably fewer errors during assembly by experienced employees in semi-automated production steps and with high quality requirements.
What do you still need to do?
Unpack, plug it in – done!
At last, it’s time for an end to:
- cutting cables to length,
- stripping cables,
- wrapping shielding around,
- stripping cores,
- terminating the conductor into the connector and
- assembling the connector.
