Subject: Communications Cable Reliability
I am trying to develop a reliability test for a communications cable. The cable uses stranded wires, some of which are twisted pair and is approx 2 feet long and is installed within a piece of electronic equipment.
Aside from installing a cable in the top level assembly and testing it under vibration etc. does anybody know of a stand-alone test for a cable to qualitatively assess it's reliability and to perhaps compare it with different designs of the cable ? (i.e. create a measuring stick to determine improvements etc.)
Thanks in advance.
