Spotlight on Design: Insight features an in-depth look at the latest technology breakthroughs impacting mobility. Viewers are virtually taken to labs and research centers to learn how design engineers are enhancing product performance/reliability, reducing cost, improving quality, safety or environmental impact, and achieving regulatory compliance.
Extreme environment sensors require extreme environment cables that can reliably perform in temperatures up to 2300° F, withstand intense vibration, and have extraordinary strength.
In the episode Sensors: Noise Avoidance and Cable Manufacturing (8:53), an engineer at Meggitt Sensing Systems demonstrates the intricate process of developing cable for sensors used in these situations. Drawing from a variety of manufacturing techniques, including a braiding machine originally used for making shoelaces to attaching connectors by hand, Sensors: Noise Avoidance and Cable Manufacturing features an in-depth step-by-step look at the entire special cable fabrication process.
This episode highlights multiple areas of interest, including:
- Step-by-step demonstrations of cable manufacturing for sensors
- Exclusive interview with an engineer responsible for cable design
- A look at how cables are tested for extreme environments
