PVC, PUR and TPE are the 3 most popular cable jackets, what are the differences between them? How do you choose the most appropriate cable? Each material has different benefits and weaknesses that depend on the application environment. Different cables can provide unique protection from environmental factors, increasing the lifetime of instrumentation， and can eliminate a lot of unexpected machine downtime.
Overmolded cable assemblies are intended to provide strong, flexible and durable terminations for various cables. The over molding process is covering cables and connectors in a molding material, usually a thermoplastic or thermoset material. This not only provides a safe and reliable connection but also protects against environmental factors such as moisture, dust, heat and mechanical stress.
When talking about "connector equivalents vs. originals," we usually compare electronic/electrical connectors that are branded originals and their equivalent counterparts, which are often made by third-party manufacturers. The original brands include Molex, TE, Deutsch, AMP, Samtec, JST, LEMO, Lumberg, Wurth, Binder, Amphenol, and others. The equivalents match the original connectors in mating, structure, and function
Certifications like IATF 16949, UL, CE, RoHS, and IPC/WHMA-A-620 ensure cable assembly products meet safety, quality, and performance standards. These strict certifications require rigorous testing and ongoing compliance to provide customers with reliable and high-quality products.
CAN bus cable assembly is a physical connection that is applied in Controller Area Network (CAN) systems. These systems are designed to facilitate communication between electronic devices in various applications, including the automotive and industrial sectors. The purpose to transmit data between devices on the network, enabling them to communicate with one another efficiently and reliably.
SCSI, Small Computer System Interface, is a set of parallel interface standards used for connecting peripheral devices to computers, it has been widely used for hard drives, tape drives, CD-ROM drives, scanners, printers and other devices. From the past years, SCSI has evolved and diverse into a range of connectors and cables to meet different requirements. This guide covers features, classify, applications, and how to choose the right SCSI connectors and cables.
IO connector（input/output connector）is an electrical interface used to establish a physical connection between a device or system and external devices or peripherals. It enables the transfer of data, signals, or power between different devices. These connectors are widely utilized in various products that necessitate data transfer or internet connectivity, including computers, routers, servers, and switches, as well as in applications where audio/video signal data input/output is required.
Robot cables refer to the robot main body, power supply, signal, control, and robot peripheral cables. Generally, they can be classified as: 1. Robot power cables, 2. controller to tech pendant cable 3. control host computer to main body cable 4. Robot main body cables
Here are the common types of industrial camera cable interfaces, whose different types of industrial camera cables are suitable for different product application . Human society is entering the era of big data of visual information. Industrial cameras can be the soul of the industrial automation system, from object/barcode identification, product inspection, and appearance dimensional measurement to robot arm/transmission equipment positioning, where industrial camera technology can make sense.
Designing connectors and cables for high-speed applications requires careful consideration of each part of the connectivity solution to achieve data rates in applications that require high-speed performance.
The process of overmolding connector and cable harness assemblies involves the injection of plastic resins around critical electrical connections under controlled conditions, and the result is a very strong and durable product. Four benefits of overmolding connector and cable harness assemblies.
Strict waterproof harness design, procurement of high quality waterproof cable materials, manufacturing according to strict cable assembly process and intensive quality inspection, we can produce qualified waterproof cable harnesses.

They're straight, right angle, and flange types which can reach IP67 protection level, Available with PCB dip solder contact, screw contact, solder contacts, and pre-molded cable.
The combination of Industry 4.0 technology and intelligence technology continues to affect our life. It is an opportunity for automation equipment development, signal transmission and connection harness. So improve the competitiveness of connectors and harnesses products has become the main goal, then how to improve market competition?
M12 connectors are IEC 61076-2-101 standard, are available in mounting types PCB mount, panel surface mount, pre-molded, and field assembly. Metal material for shells like stainless steel, brass, copper and alloys. Nowadays the 3, 4, 5, 8, 12, 17 pin connectors are available, and besides screw-locking, new locking styles such as bayonet and push-pull have been developed. Flexcontac M12 are available in shielded and non-shielded versions, straight or angled, and in different coding.
Cable assemblies are electrical connection kits which used to join different electronic systems or subsystems, and are consist of insulated wires, shielded wires, and connectors. With the widespread application of cable assemblies, the requirements for its stability, service life and environmental friendly are increasing. Cable assemblies use crimping, mounting or soldering methods to be connected, and protected by heat shrink tubes or injection molding.
To choose an industrial connector, you need to do the following things: Choose plug and socket. determine the use environment, and the voltage and current, dimension limit.
Customized wiring harness, based on each customer as a separate segment of the market, according to the specific needs to customize products, is proposed in the case of simple mass production cannot meet the diverse and individualized needs of consumers.
How to make industrial Ethernet cable connectivity while maintaining signal integration, and data transmission speed? Here we compare the capabilities, advantages, and disadvantages of five common solutions.
