    Cables for prototype construction


    Especially for the cable equipment of prototypes and small batch series, SAB Bröckskes, the specialist in cable production offers highest support. Connection cables for the visible areas of devices are a special challenge for the prototype and small series production. Individual requirements regarding numbers of cores, outer diameter, sheath colour and grip shall be fulfilled.


    Nevertheless, for such small quantities only huge lengths are available. Also the especially designed colour of the device is rarely to be found with stored cables. Remedy of single parameters often lead to high remainders which generally can´t be used any more.

    Especially in this range a unique support is offered: specialized on customised solutions and process approach, the cable specialist SAB Bröckskes offers the production of special cables already for a quantity of 100 m considering the customer´s requirements at the same time.


    Unique highlights:


    • also these small quantities are made in series production
    • a wide range of bio compatible materials of the SABmed line which are individually chosen. For the biological harmlessness acc. to EN ISO 10993-1 (cytotoxicity acc. to EN ISO 10993-5) the corresponding certificates are available
    • the outer sheath colour can be adapted to the design of the device and offers a harmonious visual appearance
    • highest flexibility, noble grip and no risk of kink, the typical torsion effect of handheld connection cables
    • on request also available as cable harness

    SABmed Cables and Wires


    Bio compatible medical cables with UL approval and "non blooming" effect


    The bio compatible material series SABmed S contains besides the basic type with high abrasion and tear strength an ultra flexible and smooth cable, a cable with UL approval as well as a non blooming type.


    There are highest demands on connection cables for medical devices especially for electro therapy/ surgery and dental technology if the cables are used between generator and applicator and thus are in contact with the patient.


    Special characteristics of the cable range

    Besides the flexibility and a perfect cleaning (by wiper disinfection or by autoclaving) characteristics as for example bio compatibility, reliability due to a long service life, low weight as well as a non sticking cable surface are often required. Moreover, for special applications the approval acc. to American standards is of greatest importance. Herewith, the torsion shall be avoided if the cable is coiled up by hand. The special cable manufacturer SAB Bröckskes GmbH & Co. KG from Viersen has succeeded to fulfil all requirements existing on the market that are presented with the material range SABmed S.


    All types are bio compatible acc. to EN ISO 10993-5 and offer best characteristics with regard to notch resistance. Nearly every cable type in or at medical devices can be manufactured with this material compound. Also single cores, interfaces for bus systems (as for example CAT5 up to CAT7, RS232, USB, etc.), power cables or cables for hand-held equipment can be offered.


    With the SABmed S material compound SAB has got also the possibility to design and manufacture connection cables for temperature sensors. Another advantage offered by the manufacturer is to adapt the cable colour individually to the colour of the medical device. Thus cables with a homogenized optic can be manufactured - different colours of device and cable are consequently a thing of the past.

    Special solutions for special applications

    The production possibilities of SAB range from basic types and standard dimensions to special cables according to the individual requirements of our customers. New productions are already possible for small quantities - especially interesting for small and pilot productions.

    Innovative control cable for paint robots

    The cable is designed for use in robots particularly in drag chains for axis 7 and distinguishes itself by a high resistance against different chemicals or solvents commonly used in robotic painting applications.


    In a paint shop (painting line in the automotive industry) cables get in contact with highly aggressive chemicals like coatings, solvents and lubricants. According to the manufacturer the new cable has two unique features of great importance. One of which is the robustness for drag chain applications and the other is the resistance against the specific environmental conditions associated with robotic painting applications.


    Special construction


    The insulation and sheath compounds are especially engineered for flame and chemical resistance. The robust construction of the cable is essential for continuous flex use in drag chains.


    The latest development for robot technology of SAB Bröckskes fulfills the demanding flame test FT4 for the North American market.


    Special characteristics of the cable:


    • flame retardant and self-extinguishing
    • vertical flame test FT 4
    • oil and chemical resistance
    • maximum durability under high mechanical stress
    • permanent flexibility


    Tested under real operating conditions


    We put the construction elements and materials through extensive endurance tests under real operating conditions.   Furthermore, the materials were exposed to harsh chemicals in the laboratory to simulate the environment of the paint shop.   All tests were successfully passed and the cable was released for mass production.

    The varied world of sensor systems in the automotive industry

    Apart from simple temperature measurements in various fields of application and industries today, not only temperature changes can be measured and controlled via sensors but also changes of varied materials and systems. It should be noted that non-electrical signals need to be converted into electrical signals by means of uniform signals or field busses.

    In the field of e-mobility where high-voltage batteries are controlled and the safety of the user needs to be guaranteed, SAB Bröckskes GmbH & Co. KG has, together with its partner CSM GmbH, developed a special temperature measurement system.

    Besides high-voltage sensors, SAB Bröckskes GmbH also produces harnessed cables and wires for pressure sensors, turbo rev counters, and flow sensors. SAB’s harnessed cables for strain gauges, which determine the compression and extension of measuring objects by resistance changes, are used for instance in the automotive industry for the determination of material changes on a car. Here changes of the metal due to shakes on the street are going to be measured.

    Additionally, a fast evaluation of the measured values plays an important role. An increase in efficiency is reached through the so called TEDS (Transducer Electronic Data Sheet) system. Similarly to plug & play, this system is termed plug & measure. It serves as a fast and direct analysis of measured data on evaluation units.

    SAB Bröckskes GmbH & Co. KG is your trusted partner for Sensors. The company delivers temperature measurement, wires, and harnessed cables from one source. You will find here a survey of different industrial application:

    Cables for sensors

    Cables for marine use

    As expert for special solutions SAB Bröckskes looks back on decades of experience in Cable manufacturing. Ever SAB product combines the know how of the most different industrial fields. The medium-sized family business presents now new products with GL and DNV type approval and enlarges herewith its cable range for ship and offshore applications.

    Ballast water, necessary to counterbalance ships is taken on board all over the oceans. For a safe and economic cruise every year billions of tons of ballast water are spread in the sea. Together with this ballast water also unwanted passengers like for example animals as fishes, crabs, bacteria and microbes are transported and released at the final destination. In their new environment, in which they often do not have natural enemies they affect or even infect other animals so that considerable ecological and economical harm can be caused that finally means a danger for mankind.

    The IMO (International Marine Organisation) works on an agreement that shall limit or avoid such dangers – international agreement about the control and the management of the ballast water of ships and sediments. In 2016 at the latest the ballast water on board of each ship has to be cleaned and sterilised by special treatment systems so that it reaches the prescribed standard acc. to the agreement.

    For the use on trade and passenger ships, SAB Bröckskes offers special cables with type approval for the wiring of these systems. On the market very often adequate solutions for special applications and requirements are missing. This is the strength of SAB Bröckskes as cable manufacturer. By the close cooperation with our customers developments are pushed forward that refer to the corresponding international standards. Herewith, products are adjusted with regard to their materials and construction that the customer´s requirements are fulfilled and thus the cables offer best functionality in their application. SAB Bröckskes also takes care of the tests and approval at the corresponding admission offices of DNV, GL, LR and ABS.

    For the wiring of technical equipment on ships the cable manufacturer offers a range of cable products with type approval, the products of the Blue Line cable range of SAB Bröckskes and further special constructions for marine use. A survey on our product range for marine use can be found on the following side:

    TWO in ONE

    Manufacturers of drive units are able to reduce the amount of wiring effort considerably and are at the same time able to save space, weight, and costs.

    Until now in drive technique generally two cables were needed. A cable for the power supply of the drive and a transmission cable for the signal transfer to the control unit. The development of new digital transmission systems enables the use of the so called one cable solution. Herewith, sensor signals and power supply is realized by a single cable.

    The one cable solution by SAB combines the two functions in one cable.

    The advantage for drive unit manufactures is evident. Due to the use of only one cable the amount of wiring is reduced considerably. Low weight and space saving are further advantages, especially for highly flexible applications as, for example, in cable tracks.

    As an expert for special solutions, SAB offers several one cable solutions which have been tested in our own technical center with regard to its capacity towards millions of bending cycles.
