Design, customise cable configurations

Louise Smyth

Pasternack, a provider of in-stock and ready to ship RF, microwave and millimetre wave products, has just released an improved version of their popular online tool called The Cable Creator. This new iteration allows the user to not only design and customise special cable configurations online in a few clicks.

Pasternack’s Cable Creator enables engineers and buyers to quickly and easily create customised RF cable assemblies that meet their specifications from any combination of compatible connectors and cables offered by the company. Designers can choose from over 1,300 connector types and 115 different coaxial cables to construct a cable solution uniquely qualified for their specific applications. The Creator can also be used to locate any of the company’s existing 40,000+ cable assemblies.

This new version of the Pasternack Cable Creator builds a product page on the fly which provides the customer a part number, pricing, a build-of-materials (BOM) datasheet and the ability to enter the desired length of the assembly. The user can then add their special design to the online shopping cart and purchase their assembly like any other product. As with all of Pasternack’s products, these custom cables are also built and shipped the same day they are ordered. The engineer or buyer can then use the newly created part number to reorder the same assembly again in the future.
