Originally posted by RF Industries

Laser-harness-combo_300x240A manufacturer of industrial lasers used for etching integrated circuit wafers required a series of cables and harnesses to connect the various functions of the machine. Included in the requirement was a single entry point for the cables to pass through a bulkhead. The electronic signals for the cabling included RF, power, data and video. Due to the industrial application, the assemblies needed to operate in a high vibration and require sufficient shielding to endure an extreme noisy RF environment. RF Industries provided the design, fabrication and testing of the various cables, including the methodology to encapsulate into a single lightly armored jacket for passing through the bulkhead and survive the harsh environment.
