Pickering Interfaces introduces new cable design tool

August 23, 2016

Pickering Interfaces provides a full range of supporting cables and connector solutions for all of its switching and simulation products and also manufacture cable assemblies to special requirements. To help customers to design a custom cable solution the company now offers the Cable Design Tool.

This graphics-based web tool enables users to create customized cable assemblies using very detailed design characteristics including a selection of connector types, wire type, pin definitions, pin and cable labeling, cable bundling, length selection, sleeving comments and more. The tool runs on all modern browsers and is fully supported on all major tablet operating systems.

The cable design tool has a built-in library of standard cable sets that can be used as the basis for customization or cables can be designed from scratch. If a user gets stuck creating a cable, all they need to do is submit the semi-completed assembly and one of Pickering’s engineers will provide guidance through the complete process. When the customized cable assembly is finished, users just need to submit it for a quote.
