Caton Interconnect Design Engineering

Concept Development

Whether interpreting a simple sketch or a detailed set of design specifications, Caton has the creative ability to conceive and develop a concept that will satisfy your most demanding application requirements.  Some of the most convincing evidence of our creative bandwidth is exemplified by the original designs in our standard product line.  Caton designers have been awarded many patents in recognition of their creative solutions.  Let us put our imagination to work for you.

We have experience in high voltage, low voltage, hybrid technology, cable design, tooling design, material selection, and over molding.

Cable Design

At the heart of most interconnect assemblies lies the cable itself.  Based on your application requirements, Caton product specialists draw on their extensive experience to source a suitable off the shelf cable.  If a standard cable does not fit, we next determine what is special and what cable manufacturer can best address the opportunity.

At Caton, we do not extrude cable.  There are just too many specialties to possibly address all applications with a single manufacturer.  Instead, our strength is in our knowledge of cable design and our strong vendor base which allows us to identify the right bulk cable at the right value point for your application.

Connector Design

Caton’s connector design team has decades of experience in the interconnect arena that benefits each new program we engage.  Our team has been awarded design and utility patents for successful new inventions that have gone on to become industry standard products.  Would your new program benefit from a unique new design that will set it apart from the competition?  Caton has the design know how, credentials, and creativity to help you stand out.

Caton’s experience runs deep in the medical, scientific, military, instrumentation, and high voltage interconnect markets.  We understand how these connectors will be used, abused, and valued in their respective markets.  Let’s collaborate on something special!
