Medical grade cables often require many specific requirements and certifications. Since they are used in critical applications, their quality and longevity need to be guaranteed. They also need to be designed for portability, so are often thin and lightweight. There are various kinds of medical cables, ranging from power cables to circuit wiring to portable cords.
At Allied Wire and Cable, we have a custom cable design process that is helpful for medical cable manufacturers. When it comes to new, specialized equipment, the off-the-shelf wire doesn’t always cut it — especially for medical-grade wires and cables.
Our Custom Medical Cable Solution
A manufacturer approached Allied Wire and Cable with a custom design that had to meet many specific requirements. They needed three different types of custom cables: ribbon cables, medical cables, and power cables and cords. While it was a challenge getting these various forms of cable to meet the different requirements, our dedicated sales representative knew we could fulfill their needs.
The manufacturer’s engineers worked closely with our sales team while designing their custom cables, refining the drawing until the customer received the ideal product for their medical equipment. Since this medical equipment needed to be moved easily, we decreased the AWG sizes and conductor counts to reduce the overall size and weight. Since the medical cable’s size was reduced, so was the customer installation time and production costs. The medical cables were also cut to a specific length and designed with connectors to connect to their power board.
When the stock cable is unable to meet your specialized requirements, Allied Wire and Cable can develop a custom cable tailor-made for your individual application. Start designing your custom solution today!
