Custom multicore cables are unique designs manufactured against specific customer needs for functionality and performance for aerospace, military ground systems, and marine applications.
Power, data, and signal in the same cable. Every year, we custom design and build several thousand high-performance, multicore/multiconductor cables to meet unique product needs. We select from our extensive range of high-performance cable components and jacket combinations to offer solutions which can improve electrical and mechanical performance and reduce size and weight.
Performance of conventional braiding can be significantly improved by computer optimization. This tightly controlled process can give many times the shielding performance of a basic braided shield with minimal weight penalty or increase in optical coverage. Supershielded cables combine Mu metal wraps with optimized braids to provide even further enhanced performance, especially at low frequencies.
Multicore Shield Types
|Cable Shield Type||Typical Cable Application|
|Aluminized Polyester||Electrostatic Shielding|
|Single Braid||Low level EMI / Low Sensitivity|
|Single Optimized Braid||Sensitive Lines / High EMI|
|Double Optimized Braid||Highly Sensitive Lines / Severe EMI|
|Double Supershielded||Highest Level of Shielding|
