Custom Telecommunication Composite Cable

When a contract electronics manufacturer customer couldn’t find a telecommunications cable for their application, they turned to Allied Wire and Cable for help. Their Allied Wire and Cable sales representative suggested creating a custom cable to fit the customer’s needs. They worked together to bring this custom telecommunication cable to life.

The customer provided specs of another cable they were already using to their Allied Wire and Cable sales representative. After our rep spoke with the customer and evaluated the specs, they were truly able to understand the customer’s needs and redesign this cable to be exactly what the customer was looking for.

This cable is a composite telecommunications cable that has two main components. The first component consists of eight 22 AWG shielded pairs with tin-plated copper conductor and extruded ETFE insulation. Component one is also in accordance with M22759/18-22. Explore more on M22759. The second component consists of two 50-ohm coax cables with an overall shield and jacket as well as a solid silver-plated copper-clad steel conductor. This component consists of an equal to Times Microwave's Tflex line. The component meets M17 specs and is designed for the transmission of high-frequency signals with minimum loss. For more information on M17 specs, our website can provide more information.

The final assembly of this cable features 10 components cabled together with fillers as required for roundness. It has a polyester tape binder, tin copper-plated copper braid shield and extruded FR polyurethane black jacket. This cable has a 600 V rating and a temperature rating of minus 40 degrees Celsius to 105 degrees Celsius. By creating this custom cable, Allied Wire and Cable was able to make this customer happy with a complete redesign of a previous cable.
