Custom Power Shielded Cable


Custom Power Shielded Cable

Wire and cable is used in just about everything, so the different types and categories within the industry span a wide range. There’s coaxial cable and hook-up wire. Power cables, portable cords and high-temp wire. Marine wire, boat cable and shipboard cable. The list goes on and on.

These cable types all have uses and functions independent from one another, but have you ever thought about designing a cable that incorporates two different types of wire into one? Well, a customer of ours did, and, resultingly, we were able to create a Custom Shielded Power Cable—a coaxial cable designed for power—to be used in a spark plug application.

Our customer who requested this custom cable, which they named a “PowerAx” cable, works in electronics design and contract manufacturing. They’d been building the cable overseas prior to contacting Allied Wire and Cable but were running into issues involving standard U.S. colors and run size. Looking for a manufacturer in the United States, the customer contacted Allied Wire and Cable, and one of our knowledgeable sales representatives and our custom cable design team was assigned to the project.

Our team was able to build a custom shielded power cable that features a 10 AWG stranded tinned copper conductor, a tin-plated, copper-braided shield and a yellow PVC jacket. The cable combines both characteristics of a power cable and coaxial cable into one, giving it a plethora of uses and capabilities.

Sometimes one type of cable alone just won’t do the trick, and in that case, it’s best to consult with one of Allied Wire and Cable’s custom cable experts so we can make an innovative custom cable come to life. If you have a custom cable design in mind that you’re looking to revamp, we’ll work with you to construct a cable that fits your needs.
