Photography to Cable Assembly

When I was younger, I used to dream of being an adventurous photographer and journalist. I would travel to far off lands, set up my tripod, take breathtaking photographs and write a story about the adventures and sights I had stumbled upon. I would be employed by a famous travel magazine and would never be bored. Sadly, this did not quite pan out. One faviconthing I do remember is that when reading an article or watching a show on some of these travelers, I realized how difficult carrying a camera around every where would be, especially with the tripods and cords.

Cable assemblies are popular in countless industries, and some of them could be useful in photography and filmography. More often however, these are used in applications such as lifts, electronic power tools, portable defibrillators, construction machinery, spacecraft and aircraft. Cable assemblies work in the same way as a basic power supply cord in transferring energy from a power source to a piece of equipment. These products are a grouping of two or more cords bound together to make a single unit for power transmission. They are composed of three main components, a conducting medium, insulating material around the medium and an outer protective jacket that protects the cable. The reason they are so popular and useful in these industries is because they are designed to be durable and long lasting.

These products are available in many different levels depending on the working voltage, current-carrying capacity and environmental conditions needed for the desired application. Other items taken into account include length, connector type and the cable type itself. Adventurous photographers, those in construction and those in spacecraft understand the need of environmentally protected materials. Which is why, whether it is a cable assembly or other power cord that they are in need of, they make sure it is not only durable, but reliable as well.
