Pro/CABLE

cable1.gif (23557 bytes)Pro/CABLE is used to design virtual cables and harnesses in Pro/ENGINEER. Pro/CABLE allows you to route wires and cables through an assembly to determine routings and cable lengths, as well as cable tray sizes and locations. Connectors, wire sizes, tie wraps, ferrite beads, etc. are all specified in the cable and their locations determined. This information is then passed on to Pro/HARNESS-MFG which flattens the cable and develops the nail board necessary for manufacture of the harness. Pro/CABLE can be driven by Pro/DIAGRAM, which provides a circuit diagram and control of routing, or Pro/CABLE can stand alone and develop the pin to pin connections at the time of routing.

 


Use of cable to design harnesses allows engineers to completely develop a design in the virtual state, rather than having to build prototypes and then route cables through the completed machine.  Virtual routing within your Pro/ENGINEER model can save hundreds of hours normally spent trying to find places to run wires once the rest of the mechanical design is complete.
