Design Prevents Field Failure

Design Prevents Field Failure

Case Study: Security Systems Manufacturer

Situation

A Fortune 500 security systems company experienced ongoing field failures of communications cable used in an automated door access system in a high-traffic, highly secure environment. ALTEX was challenged to design a solution that would prevent this failure.

Solution

ALTEX’s product and manufacturing engineers worked very closely with the client to design a flexible cable harness assembly that could withstand the number of flexes expected over the security product’s lifetime. A connector system was sourced to meet the application’s low current requirements.

Result

The new design went through extensive life-cycle testing and successfully was implemented into the security product. ALTEX was awarded the production business to build the new cable assembly.
