Our Custom Cable Assembly Prototype Process

When beginning the design process, you'll consult with our team to determine precisely what you need from your prototype cable assembly. This first conversation will dive into your project’s details and includes considering your equipment, budget, connection needs, future maintenance, and more. Our design team will then begin the engineering process of creating your one-of-a-kind prototype assembly. 

From the design and engineering phase, our manufacturing engineers begin working on your prototype from the conductor out. We have the custom capability to extrude the conductors to the most exacting size requirements. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail, so naturally, we craft your prototype assembly with ultra-precision. 


After your prototype finishes the production phase, we send it to our state-of-the-art testing facility. The testing lab puts your prototype through the gamut of durability, functionality, and performance tests to ensure it is up to standard. We are honored and proud to hold multiple UL certifications, meaning our products are in line with top industry standards. You can rest assured that your prototype cable assembly has been tested and retested for continuity, integrity, polarity and functionality. 

When your prototype has been put to every test you can imagine we utilize our global logistics network to ship it directly to you. Before you know it, you'll integrate your prototype into your system to expand your testing capabilities.

Some of the key benefits of implementing prototype cable assemblies are:

  • Risk mitigation: By performing a trial run with a prototype, your team can identify potential pitfalls before they cause harm or damage. Prototyping allows you to head off certain risky situations, such as overloading, misconnections, and hazardous design flaws. 
  • Design confirmation: A cable assembly prototype allows designers to ensure their design operates successfully. As a trial run, a prototype can help identify potential adjustments and corrections that may be required. 
  • Performance testing: Prototype assemblies allow you to thoroughly examine and evaluate the efficacy of your system's performance in realistic conditions. With a custom prototype cable assembly, you can examine factors such as signal integrity, durability, and consistency. 
  • Customization: Prototyping your cable assembly with Meridian cable also allows you to customize it to meet your precise needs. Many Industries require one-of-a-kind assemblies to match the specialized equipment requirements. Customizing your assembly increases your optimization and ensures you're not left with unnecessary waste, as you might be with an off-the-shelf solution. 
  • Less time in development: By identifying and correcting design flaws, inefficiencies, and suboptimal performance issues early on, your design team can spend less time in the development phase and move to scale production sooner rather than later. 
  • Budget savings: Ultimately, prototyping a cable assembly can save you money in the long run by optimizing your design and connection solutions before moving to full-scale production.

When you work with Meridian on your prototype cable assembly, you can rest assured your prototype is designed to our impeccably high standards. We understand the responsibility and importance of a prototype design because we've been creating them for decades. We know how much rides on the success of a reliable prototype and design. Our products maximize your benefits and allow you to test your equipment with high-quality prototype cable assemblies every time.

Cable Prototype FAQs

Prototype custom cable assemblies are vital to the testing and production phase when developing a product. Industries can assess, examine, and perform equipment trial runs before mass production. As a critical component of the development process, a prototype cable assembly allows industries to inspect products and save money by assuring confidence in their efficacy and functionality. 

Prototype assemblies play a valuable role in a wide array of industries, including medicine, military, telecommunications, industrial production, and more. As an instrumental factor in product development, prototype cable assemblies allow companies to validate their design before escalating to full-scale production. Ultimately, prototype assemblies save time and effort in the long run by circumnavigating costly design errors or calculations before the expense of mass production.
