cable designing resources

Designing a custom cable can help with the longevity, installation, maintenance, and quality of your application. With Allied Wire and Cable’s custom cable design service, you can get exactly what you need. If you need adjustments made to standard cables or need to design a totally new cable, our custom cable experts can help.

Through our custom cable design center, you can specify materials for the conductor, insulation and jacket, performance parameters or industry certifications, and if shielding, tape, or armor is needed for extra protection.

While our dedicated sales representatives are available to help every step of the way, designing a custom cable can seem overwhelming. To learn more about custom cable concepts and components, value-added services, and industry requirements, check out the helpful articles listed below:
