OSCEOLA, WI. – December 9, 2014 – Cable engineering company, Northwire, Inc., (NWI), in collaboration with precision cable connector leader LEMO, co-publish a white paper geared toward educating engineers and product designers. Around the world, with applications ranging from space to sub-terrain, today’s engineers are challenged with inventing solutions for future generations. LEMO and Northwire understand that fully-integrated, end-to-end solutions are integral to success in these harsh conditions.
Ranging from the extremes of underwater applications to oil and gas instrumentation, the LEMO – Northwire white paper series will explore the complex requirements that are as demanding as their respective environments. With more than two-thirds of the surface of the earth, it is fitting that Underwater Connectivity represents the first in the series. By tackling the engineering challenges of underwater cables, underwater connectors and ancillary electrical components, readers will learn the most important elements of design, fit, form and function.
The underwater connectivity white paper dives deep on the critical to quality factors of connectors and cables that will be used in a wet or submerged environment. Electrical systems used in underwater applications have an abundance of opportunities to fail; reliable, proven products that deliver high performance in these demanding elements are crucial to success.
In the white paper, Northwire and LEMO cover crucial topics from bottom-line considerations and long-term expenses to custom cable manufacturing and performance capabilities of electrical connectors. The white paper reveals the key environmental factors and guides decision-makers through a nine-step evaluation to determine the custom cable and specific electrical connector to meet their exact requirement.
Northwire and LEMO, both internationally recognized for high-quality custom solutions, offer a robust selection of custom wire, cable, connectors, and assemblies for use in a variety of water types and depths. Engineers design and manufacture custom cable, underwater cable and connectors that navigate complex domestic and international regulations, and meet specific requirements such as IP68, ABS (American Bureau of Shipping) and more.
Now, it is easier than ever to rationalize your cable and connector supply chain; Northwire and LEMO demonstrate the tangible benefits of their partnership through comprehensive, integrated cable connection solutions. NWI’s heavy-duty cable incorporates seamlessly into LEMO’s watertight connectors to provide guaranteed performance in the most severe underwater environments, offering customers reliability, durability, cost-savings, convenience and support from a global network of Subject Matter Experts (SME).
