Connectivity Fundamentals

from LAPP ENGINEERING

Continuous supply of electric power or faultless data transfer, provided mostly through wiring, are primary requirements affecting virtually all systems. This results in stringent requirements for production, installation, and operation of cables. Even the most experienced engineer can find it difficult to choose the right products for the job. This ebook provides an engineer’s guide to cable, wire, and connectivity.

Component Materials

SEE MORE

From conductors to insulation to jacketing, the materials used in building a cable are critical for performance and electrical characteristics. This guide outlines the different types of metals, alloys, thermoplastics, thermosets, and insulation materials used by Lapp engineering and what characteristics they bring to the cable's performance.

Cabling Design

SEE MORE

Performance characteristics of a cable, like bend radius and flexibility, depend on many design aspects. This guide explains each and every one: wire stranding methods, conductor configuration, shielding type, and other design features like drain wires, supporting filaments, and armor.

Electrical Properties

SEE MORE

The most important attribute of a cable is consistent electrical performance. This guide outlines how electrical phenomena like capacitance, impedance, inductance, and attenuation act on and are affected by cable design.
