Custom M12 Cables: Tailored Solutions for Automation and More!

In the increasingly fast-paced world we live in today, automation is becoming not just a plus to have for many businesses, but a necessity for improving operational efficiency to meet budget and time restrictions. When not just a few, but all of the biggest players in any industry have begun implementing automation into much of their production, manufacturing, and processes, automation is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. This is the case for leaders in all kinds of industries including robotics, aerospace, logistics & shipping, military, medical and so many more. It’s simply not an option to avoid using automation for companies providing services across the nation or the world, because you will fall behind the competition in terms of efficiency. This includes software applications like artificial intelligence which are now becoming more prevalent, or the types of automation we’ve specialized in providing cables for since our founding in 2002.

One of the most frequently used and important types of connectors that power this automation is the ever reliable, compact and powerful M12 connector and the specialized cables we build that utilize said connectors. There are many variations on the standard M12 connector including the older M5, M8 and RJ45 styles that are all still extremely popular, and even within these types there are hundreds of different styles with the numbers of pins used, materials utilized, type of signal to be carried, and all sorts of other variables. We are experts in all of the possible variations, and even if you can imagine an M12 cable assembly with an exceedingly unusual configuration, we’ve probably manufactured something similar before due to our many years of experience and the plethora of businesses we’ve done orders for.

As a custom M12 cable and cable assembly manufacturer, here at Technical Cable Applications we specialize in crafting custom and off-the-shelf solutions tailored to meet the precise needs of our clients. We are ISO 9001:2015 and UL certified for cable assembly and are extremely experienced with M12 cables and assemblies and all the intricacies of the different kinds of M12 connectors, how they work with other types of connectors that we can also provide, and ensuring that they will be protected and durable for all your needs. You can trust us to manufacture your M12 custom cables order perfectly no matter how complex the specifications are.

    Industrial Ethernet cables are the industry standard for rugged data connections. These include M12 and M8 standard Ethernet connectors. They are used in a wide variety of industries, including robotics, warehouse automation, machine vision systems, aerospace, medical, automotive, agriculture, manufacturing, marine, and utilities.

    The miniature circular m12 connector creates a firm environmental seal with its mating receptacle that will withstand more extreme strain and harsher environments than counterparts offering the same continuity. Many of our customers in these industries have replaced standard RJ45 type connections with our molded M12 cables, drastically increasing ruggedness and reliability while still offering incredible speeds for data transfer and connection to the Internet. There’s no need to fret about your RJ45 cables fraying or failing at crucial times when our M12 solutions are strong enough for most applications. We can also create harnesses and assemblies that offer further protection for your cables from the elements or hazardous substances, so you can know that your data transfer will not fail when you need it most.

    Industrial Ethernet powers automation in all kinds of discrete devices in a wide swath of industries. We work in close partnership with manufacturers and specialists in both M12 cable and high flex wire and cable. We now have cable assemblies capable of extremely high flex cycle counts, creating a robust solution for automation and robotics scenarios where mobility is required and constant. We also use powerful automated equipment ourselves to ensure quality, so we know how important it is to have excellent and reliable cables throughout your equipment to ensure that products are manufactured on time and with no loss in quality as compared to handmade options.

    M12 Cables can be built using assembled back-shells and field wire-able connectors. However, TCA has invested in the highly specialized mold dies to over-mold M12 cable connectors in our factory in Auburn, WA, USA. We remain one of the very few companies in the country to mold M12 cables domestically. This allows us to make large and small production runs of custom cable assemblies utilizing our customers required pinouts, key configuration, connector orientation for both male and female, and specifications.

    Ethernet M12 Cable

    We mold male and female M12 cables in straight or right-angle orientations. Different connector keying options and locations are available depending on the customer specific requirements. Our M12 cables are molded utilizing Henkel TECHNOMELT OM646, a polyamide Shore A92 rated thermoplastic for low pressure rapid injection molding.

    Custom Fiber Optic Cables

    Custom Fiber Cables – Shielded Fiber Optic Cable Assemblies

    If your need for fiber optical cables and patch sections includes them being in any sort of environmentally hazardous conditions, or even just encountering minimal but persistent damage over time from repeated contact, adjustment, etc., you need to ensure that your custom cable configuration is carefully shielded with not just any material, but specifically ones that will protect your fiber optic assemblies from harsh environments and prevent packet loss or full data interruptions. The actual fiber optic cables themselves must be made with durable materials as well in these cases. Our team are experts in the areas of molding, crimping, assembly and tinning for custom cable production, along with having in-depth knowledge about the ideal materials to use for all sorts of scenarios. For instance, one cable assembly material we often use for situations where temperature can vary widely i.e. outdoor applications is the polyamide known as Macromelt OM 946, which has a hardness rating of 92A and can continue operating safely in temps as low as -40 degrees Celsius and as high as 100 degrees Celsius which covers both extremes very easily. This is excellent for protecting not only fiber assemblies but all sorts of other connectors  and applications, and we have many more materials we’ll use depending on your need.

    Our custom fiber optics cable and patch solutions enable you to reach higher performance standards with incredible reliability and implement the cables into your products or facility right away. Rather than ordering OEM or off-the-shelf fiber optic cables with no customization and having to adapt them on the fly to your project, or trying to manufacture custom cables and patch panels in-house without the right equipment, ordering custom fiber optic and Cat-6 cables produced by Technical Cable Applications will be far more efficient and provide the best performance possible. We’ll take care of all the customization, patch needs, material and part sourcing and shielding requirements. We also work with nearshore manufacturing facilities who help us provide extremely fast lead times and lower our MOQ requirements, which can be very beneficial for highly customized cable assemblies, patch panels and configurations.

    Triax Cable Assemblies

    The average consumer is likely familiar with the common coaxial cable, due to its usage in all kinds of applications over the past several decades. What the average consumer does not know is that there are a great number of variations on the standard coaxial cable for different needs, whether for additional protection, power loss prevention, extra fast data transfer or highly specialized needs. One of these variations that is less commonly used, but still very much an important type for many industries, is the triaxial cable and connector. While more intricate than the simple coaxial cable many are familiar with, this variation is extremely durable and offers lossless data transmission.

    Triax Cable Assemblies

    Triaxial cables offer a second layer of insulation and typically can carry more bandwidth than the basic coaxial cable, while avoiding loss of data or power that simpler coaxial cables are more prone to under stress. While this increases the cost greatly for long range applications where thousands of feet of cable are needed, triaxial cables are excellent for shorter-range applications where loss of power or data is simply not an option. Technical Cable Applications can manufacture off-the-shelf or custom triaxial cable assemblies, or just about any other coaxial variation you can think of. This includes classic coaxial, twinaxial, triaxial, Miniature coaxial, Micro coaxial and semi-rigid coaxial options, and if needed we can work multiple connector types to fit nicely together into a single assembly, which we promise will be manufactured perfectly from the very first to the very last assembly you utilize from your order with us. We utilize automated work instruction systems developed in partnership with Scout Systems to ensure that we are as efficient and precise as possible, manufacturing high quality cable assemblies as quickly as possible. We also have highly advanced crimping and tinning equipment like our Schleuniger 36SP Crimp Center, which tripled our speed of doing these tricky processes while also maintaining and even improving quality after its initial acquisition.

    Triaxial Cable Assemblies and Wire Harnesses

    At Technical Cable Applications, we can manufacture all kinds of triax cable assemblies, both as off-the-shelf builds of your existing cable drawing, or more custom solutions as needed. While the most common sizes of triax cable are 8, 11 and 14 mm, and the most typical resistance level is 75 ohms, we are able to produce highly custom triaxial cables according to your cable specifications in complex configurations, with all sorts of other connector types as required. We can produce custom triax assemblies for businesses across many industries, including:

    triax cableBroadcast: Streaming and broadcast triax cable assemblies are excellent for the needs of broadcasting and media companies. Triaxial cables provide near lossless signal transmission and can withstand physical damage better than the standard coaxial. This makes them ideal for video equipment and connecting various systems together, especially in fast moving, high traffic environments like stadiums. They are also great for satellite and camera related connections which is obviously excellent for television and broadcast needs. It can also be helpful for concerts and other live venue events, even if there is not a live television or streaming element involved since many concert graphics use real time camera feeds. Please contact us about your broadcast cable needs with your cable drawing.

    triax cable Aerospace: We are equipped to manufacture aerospace specific triaxial cable assemblies, as we have equipment and thorough testing that helps us ensure we meet the extremely strict requirements any aerospace product or facility must hold to. Triaxial cables are suitable for aerospace applications like avionics, communications via satellite and air control facilities in general. Their inherent durability, prevention of interference and quality of transmission without packet loss are all excellent benefits that aerospace vehicles and control facilities need whenever possible for safe and efficient flights. Please contact us about any aerospace projects to find out if we are a good fit for your manufacturing needs.

    triax cableGovernment/Military: Similar to the aerospace industry, cables utilized by the government or military must be built to resist damage and offer reliable signal transfer no matter the harshness of the environment. As discussed, triaxial cable assemblies do this excellently and are often a great fit for these applications. We are capable of manufacturing triaxial cable assemblies for military needs like special telecommunication systems, facilities and equipment. We are ITAR certified as well so we are extra well equipped for military and government work for the US. Please contact us about your government and military adjacent needs, and send us your cable drawing so we can determine whether it’s something that would fit our capabilities.

    triax cableMarine: Whether it’s for naval or commercial purposes, satellite communication is utilized frequently by sea faring vehicles as well which triaxial cables are perfectly suited for. Marine electronics need to be tough, have great range and be resistant to salt water whenever possible which we can help with by manufacturing with water resistant and highly durable materials as needed. We can help with your marine cable assembly and wire harness needs, but please send us your cable drawing first so we can determine if we’re a good fit for manufacturing your cable drawing. Our team would be glad to talk through it with you and determine next steps.
