The cable crimper is the next big thing
Posted On July 26, 2021
Cable crimpers have long been a staple of cable technology, but there are two big hurdles for the technology to really make its way to the home.
The first is that cable manufacturers are notoriously reluctant to build the technology into their products.
A new technology developed by two Australian researchers could change that, but it’s still a work in progress.
The new cable crimp was unveiled during the annual Cable Technology Conference in San Jose, California, on Monday.
The technology was named the ‘Cable Crambler’ and was developed by University of Melbourne engineering student Matthew T. Brown and Professor of Computer Science Paul E. D’Arcy of the Australian National University.
The team said it has developed a “dynamic and flexible” cable cable that can be attached to the ends of standard 2.5mm or 3.5 mm male connectors.
The crimp allows cable to be fastened onto connectors and then easily removed when needed.
The device can be installed by using the cable crimping tool that comes with the Cable Cramblers toolbox.
It is attached to an existing cable, and will hold the connector securely for the entire length of the cable.
It’s also compatible with other 2.0mm or 2.2mm male connectors and a standard 1.5″ male cable.
The device is powered by a lithium ion battery and requires no power to operate.
There’s a downside to the Cable Crimper: it’s expensive to manufacture and expensive to maintain.
The team hopes to sell the cable to consumers, but they said the cost would be a barrier to adoption.”
The cable is a work-in-progress and we need to iterate on it and make sure it is as secure as possible,” Brown said in a statement.”
If it works, I hope to see this becoming a standard cable.
“Brown said he was inspired by other work by MIT researchers who developed a cable cable-like device.
The cable is made from flexible polymer, and has the potential to be used for a variety of applications.
Brown is not the first to invent a cable crimpers.
Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley have been working on a similar cable crimped tool since last year.
The research team says the new cable will be more flexible and durable than previous cables.
However, it has not yet been tested with cable manufacturers.
Brown said the cable will cost less than $1,000 and will be available in 2020.
He said he hopes to create a tool that will be widely adopted.”
I think the cable’s not going to be a one-size-fits-all solution for people, but I think we can do that,” he said.
The more flexible you can make it, the better,” Brown told the BBC.
