Premium cable for high-end industrial control panel

To ensure that the control panels always remain connected, even under harsh conditions, their cables must be exceptionally robust and reliable. Elektrosil provided a reliable high-end solution.

The challenge

The customer required a special solution for its innovative Human-Machine Interfaces for controlling machinery: A hybrid cable for data and power, which is resistant to liquids and acids, made in a customer-specific special colour. The connection solution for the control panel must withstand even the highest tensile forces. The client specified suppliers for certain areas. The development was done by himself.

The solution

Elektrosil assembled a highly competent manufacturing team from its own network around the specified suppliers. The engineering team coordinated the exchange of information and provided the customer with precise support. The coordination included all processes of manufacturing and assembling in Germany and best-cost countries.

The great experience in coordination guaranteed a smooth process in the implementation of change requests and the provision of components. The focus was on the quality of the solution: the raw cable, including shielding of the data line and UL certification, was manufactured by a cable specialist. In addition to the 100 percent final inspection in the external production, Elektrosil tested the samples in-house, e.g. with long-term tests in the climate chamber. This ultimately led to a failure rate of less than 0.1 percent. The optimal hold of the cable is ensured by a robust plug-in connection that can withstand a tested tensile force of 400 N. The firm connection of the cable to the interface housing was created thanks to a special adhesive.

As a reliable and knowledgeable first-source partner, Elektrosil supports a market leader in automation technology to create a robust speciality cable for human-machine interfaces.

Hold connection: Cable with integrated power and data cable for tensile forces up to 400 N

Always be connected: HMI are the interface to the machine - and the daily face of the manufacturer's brand for the customer.
