Cable assemblies

Cable assemblies with various connectors, ribbon cables, single strand processing or the production of connecting cables for servo drives.

What exactly are cable assemblies?

Cable assemblies are the manufacture and production of ready-to-connect cables, cable harnesses and complete cable harnesses including assembly with various connectors and contacts. These are required in many industries where the transmission paths are electronic, preferably for connecting cables for servo drives.

Cable assemblies with numerous possibilities

We offer customized solutions for cable assemblies in all areas of application. A wide product range of electromechanical components and cables allows us to meet almost all requirements. We accompany you from product development and sampling to the supply of small or large series and are happy to use our expertise to point out alternative solutions if necessary.

We manufacture a wide range of connector and cable combinations for various industrial applications for the transmission of power, signals and data.

Activities and procedures in cable assemblies

The respective area of application, the quantity and the specific requirements of the customers determine which cable assemblies are used. Three connection methods are mainly used: crimping, soldering and insulation displacement contact (IDC) . Gradecustomer-specific developments with custom-fit design are in demand in addition to the standard cable assembly solutions.

Why design is so important in cable assemblies

Cable assemblies are an essential element of functionality in plants, vehicles, industrial equipment and processes. It is therefore all the more important to be able to rely on their functionality and performance. High demands are therefore rightly placed on the development of cable assemblies and cable harness production. To meet these, cable assemblies are designed as ready-to-connect segments, depending on the application. For complex applications, the cable assemblies are designed or represented three-dimensionally using CAD programs. This makes it possible to define specific assembly points and other technical parameters such as cable lengths and fasteners as early as the development phase.

Cable Assemblies - UL Wiring Harness

For end products that contain cables and wires and are intended for the North American market, UL Wiring Harness labeling is often required. This ensures that the installed components can be traced.

RST has obtained UL certification as a manufacturer of cable assemblies to UL (Underwriter Labratories) and, with the Wiring Harness label to ZPFW2 (USA) and ZPFW8 (CANADA), ensures that all components and materials under UL file number E520455 comply with current UL standards.

On the one hand, this traceability program guarantees that UL-specific product requirements and processes for cable assemblies are met by our production facility. Second, it ensures the identification and traceability of all cable assemblies based on lot numbers, manufacturing dates and manufacturing locations. The outer packaging is marked with special labels to indicate that these cable assemblies have been manufactured in accordance with UL Wiring Harness requirements.

In particular, customers and prospects who supply cable assemblies as components for end-use applications in the North American market are assured of this. Underwriters Laboratories Incorporated continuously monitors compliance with the required standard in terms of components, materials and processes through inspectors using a validated and traceable process. Annual audits ensure that the specified standards are permanently maintained.

If you need cable assemblies marked according to UL Wiring Harness, please contact us. We look forward to your inquiry.


Our service

RST's service includes labeling or marking of cables and wires according to customer requirements. We deliver in specified packages (for example rolled and/or bundled). Cable and wire ends can be supplied pre-tinned or fitted with ferrules. In addition, we offer demand-oriented production on modern machines and continuous quality monitoring as well as the preparation of initial sample inspection reports (EMPB) and batch traceability in accordance with UL Wiring Harness according to ZPFW2 and ZPFW8.
