Looking to design electronic products that are smaller, lighter, and smart? Obviously, since we are so dependent on electronics now for almost every job that we do, and for every comfort we need; with the requirements of compactness and smartness that we look for in every product, designing such small and smart electronic products becomes vital. Your products need to meet especially challenging requirements of safety, durability, performance, and form-fit-and-function. So, let us take a look at all these elements that are a must when you are considering connectors and cable assemblies.
Obviously, your electronic products need to meet the industry standards of safety, no matter where you sell. It is time to check your connectors, cable assemblies, and every other electrical/electronic part for compliance to RoHS and REACH. The RoHS standard restricts the use of hazardous substances to build products, while REACH determines the registration, evaluation, authorization, and restriction of chemicals.
Every connectivity component needs to transmit power, data, and signals effectively, while also resisting electromagnetic interference. But, does it also need to resist rough handling, fluids, moisture, gases, extreme temperatures, shock, or vibration? Does it need to support plugging/unplugging? Considering all these aspects, you’ll need connectivity components that can satisfy all your requirements, and every rugged condition that the end product will need to be in. Only then will the component and end product both be considered durable.
Connectors and contacts are the core of today’s technologies. For most equipment used today, connectors with rugged contact designs can help achieve and maintain performance under the most demanding conditions. As electronic products become smaller, lighter, and robust in every industry segment today, it is important that every connector requirement is considered with care.
Form, fit, and function
Do you need connectors and components that install readily, mate securely, and promote ease-of-integration? Terminal position assurance devices, keying mechanisms, and polarization features can help. Form, fit, and function can make or break a product design, and eventually a product. Thus, you definitely need an electronic manufacturer who can provide you with all the engineering support that you need.
Other optional considerations
Other than all of these considerations, you may also consider many other optional considerations like using special materials and colour codes or labels. Your end products may need connectors and cable assemblies that need to be made of special materials. For example, certain medical devices and equipment require polymers that meet USP Class VI requirements for biological reactivity; or the connectivity components used in certain industrial applications may need plastics that meet UL flammability standards. You may also need different coloured or labeled cables and assemblies for easy identification so that it becomes easy not only to install the right cables into the right points, but also becomes easy in case of repairing, replacement, or maintenance.
Whatever your requirements are, there is just one place that you can get all of it. Miracle Electronics is one of the best cable assembly manufacturers in India, where you can get quality connectors, cable assemblies, and every other such electronic product; each that is standard and tested, fulfilling all the requirements of functioning and performance.
