Extreme environment sensors require extreme environment cables that can reliably perform in temperatures up to 2300° F, withstand intense vibration, and have extraordinary strength.
In the episode “Sensors: Noise Avoidance and Cable Manufacturing” (8:53), an engineer at Meggitt Sensing Systems demonstrates the intricate process of developing cable for sensors used in these situations. Drawing from a variety of manufacturing techniques,including a braiding machine originally used for making shoelaces to attaching connectors by hand, “Sensors: Noise Avoidance and Cable Manufacturing” features an in-depth step-by-step look at the entire special cable fabrication process.
This episode highlights multiple areas of interest, including:
- Step-by-step demonstrations of cable manufacturing for sensors
- Exclusive interview with engineer responsible for cable design
- A look at how cables are tested for extreme environments
