We have vast experience, 15+ years, with test and measurement cables and work with modern components such as mass interconnect solutions, military circular and Harting modular connectors. All of our cables are handmade as we prefer to use hand soldering stations and hand soldering tools. We test all of our cables on modern Cirris cable analyzers; the testing consists of both low voltage testing for continuity, wire resistance and shorts, and high voltage testing for insulation resistance, dielectric failures and overcurrent.

About Pickering Connect

Pickering Connect is part of the Pickering Group of companies which started in 1968 with Pickering Electronics, a manufacturer of high-quality reed relays. The group expanded in 1988 when Pickering Interfaces was established. Pickering Interfaces’ design, develop and manufacture commercial and custom switching and simulation solutions for the Test & Measurement industry.

Pickering Connect Cables & ConnectorsIn 2005 Pickering Interfaces opened a manufacturing facility in Třinec, the Czech Republic with a view to design and manufacture cable and connector solutions to ease integration of its products into functional test systems. The facility is now well established, producing a comprehensive range of standard and custom interconnection for all Pickering Interfaces’ modules and other test & measurement equipment manufacturers.Pickering Connect Cables & Connectors

With the increase in the number of requests of these connectivity products for applications outside of the test and measurement industry, the Pickering Group decided to establish Pickering Connect, a new subsidiary for customers seeking connectivity solutions for any application, in any industry and any quantity.
