The cable design for a automated test system is critical for repeatability and accuracy, it needs care and expertise. Depending on the application, a test engineer needs to consider test specifications, including voltage, current, temperature, insertion losses, and more. Unless the test engineer is an expert on cabling, researching wires and connectors can be a daunting task.

There are times when a standard cable assembly is not suitable, and there is a need for custom connectors and wire types or specific harness wiring. Our free online Cable Design Tool (CDT) is a simple and efficient way of creating these custom cabling solutions.


In this training, we demonstrate the tools abilities and features which include:

  • A built-in library of standard cable sets—to be used as the basis for customization, or cables can just be defined from scratch
  • Store cable assemblies in the Cloud and develop over time
  • Create your own library and share with colleagues
  • Each cable design has a pdf documentation file detailing all of the specifications
  • Allows very detailed design characteristics including a selection of connector types, wire type, pin definitions, pin and cable labeling, cable bundling, length selection, sleeving, comments
  • Add your own connectors and wires
  • Fully supported on major tablet operating systems
