January 17, 2011
Tyco Electronics has developed a reputation for the design and engineering of military hybrid cables, by collaborating with the customer to identify their specific needs and requirements. Innovative engineering and a sophisticated CAD system allows Tyco Electronics to design military hybrid cables that combine multiple components under one single jacket which cuts down on cable weight and physical space requirements enabling a faster and more cost effective install. As a worldwide RoHs compliant cable manufacturer of advanced power and signal transmission solutions, Tyco Electronics offers a full range of customized cable designs that will utilize MIL-DTL-24640 compliant materials, and when required, an optimized shield design for harsh EMI environment requirements. Additionally, hybrid shipboard cables may incorporate innovative waterblocking tapes and yarns or traditional physical waterblocking solutions to prevent the ingress of water during operation.Designers can select from a wide range of standard or specialized components and may incorporate controlled electrical, signal and power components into a single optimized design intended to deliver consistency and quality. Components can include SAE-AS-81044, MIL-W-22759, MIL-DTL-24643/59-/61, 100BaseT, IEEE 1394 and RG lightweight alternatives.Prototype samples are available upon request.For more information on Tyco Electronics’ custom MIL-DTL-24640 cable, contact Tyco Electronics’ technical support center at 800-522-6752, or send email to newproducts@tycoelectronics.com
