Hybrid cables - Various cables combined as plug & play systems

Abisoliertes Kabel mit diversen Leitern auf Steckbuchse

Operational processes often require different cables and wires in very confined spaces in order to control different machines or exchange various data. Companies often face different challenges. On the one hand, the purchase of the various individual cables is costly. On the other hand, the assembling of several cables is time-consuming and therefore also expensive. Finally, the susceptibility to errors increases with the increase of individual components. Our customer-specific hybrid cables provide a solution to these problems.

Hybrid cables – A wide variety of elements under one sheath

Based on our many years of experience, it is our daily business to develop hybrid cables in close cooperation with our customers. Here we can bundle the most diverse cable types in a common sheath. These include copper conductors, fiber optic cables, coaxial cables, shielded pairs, hoses for hydraulics/pneumatics and/or bus cables with data, control and supply cables. This approach makes our hybrid cables efficient all-rounders for your individual operational requirements. Please feel free to contact our experts and let them advise you in an initial discussion.

Hybrid cable - One cable, numerous advantages

It is obvious that multiple cables, each with a separate sheath, have a larger surface area, requiring both more material and space. With our hybrid cables, we favor optimize the factors of space and material costs in your favor. This allows you to be more flexible in laying the cable and saves investment costs compared to buying single cables. We can also design our hybrid system cables to be tension-resistant, EMC-optimized or resistant to a wide variety of media - just as it makes most sense for your requirements.

Hybrid cables - Quickly assembled

As part of our comprehensive assembly service, we develop precisely tailored plug & play systems for your hybrid cables. This enables you to use our solutions directly for a wide variety of applications. There is no need for time-consuming and costly assembly, as you receive all components and products from one competent source. In this context, please also note our current article on "Hybrid cables in medical technology". Here you will get an impression of the advantages mentioned using a specific application example.
