Engineers that design advanced, motion-intensive automated systems across a variety of industries have come to rely on flexible cables to deliver control, power, data and signals in challenging applications. While many cable suppliers offer designers a host of standard products, finding the cable that meets your exact requirements while also addressing tough conditions is seldom easy. In automated environments where uptime is everything, it’s critical to work with a supplier that can provide innovative specialty cable products—and deliver them fast.
