A worldwide leader in automotive safety — a pioneer in both seat belt and airbag technology — required cable for its crash test simulators to collect data during impact. The company had two major requirements: a composite cable able to carry all the connections needed to record the data, and a cable flexible enough to move with the car through to impact, so the customer can re-use the cable.
The company selected cables from Lapp, a global leader in the design and manufacture of durable and reliable electrical connectivity solutions that ensure maximum uptime for industrial machines, motors and motion applications. The special composite cables the customer selected — 24/6 pair, RG 58 coax, 12/4c, 18/1c — connect to the vehicle’s board controls and the facility’s control room.
The end result: Lapp cables are so flexible, they last in more tests than the prior cable supplier’s offering, giving the company longer life with its test equipment.
Lapp cables can be found in an array of industrial applications, from stage equipment at the Rolling Stone tour and new opera house in Beijing, to ancient pyramids and modern airport departure lounges, to the newest container cranes and the largest wind turbines.
