Engineers invest significant time and effort into crafting efficient, reliable, and cost-effective positioning systems using stepper or servomotors. They meticulously choose motors, controllers, feedback circuits, and amplifiers tailored to the motion system's requirements.

Regrettably, the attention given to signal and power cables interconnecting these components often dwindles until the project's advanced stages. In some cases, these crucial connections are left to electricians lacking the necessary expertise. Neglecting key cable selection considerations can result in systems with subpar accuracy, frequent malfunctions, susceptibility to electromagnetic interference, and adverse impacts on adjacent equipment.

This Kollmorgen whitepaper aims to demystify the intricate and occasionally bewildering landscape, shedding light on the complexities associated with cable selection.
