  • Physical performance - size, weight, strength, abrasion and cut though
  • Termination requirements - connector compatibility and process ease
  • Cosmetics and aesthetics - color matching, private label, logos and special packaging
  • Innovation - making the user aware of the product and performance trends and developments and incorporating these into the initial design to increase application life and performance of the cable
  • Prototypes - turning ideas into cables and providing interconnect solutions
