Guaranteed to Perform.

Endurance Vision Cable Assemblies are designed and built to meet or exceed motion and vision system application requirements. Engineered with the industry’s first industrial-grade dual over-mold connectors, Endurance cable assemblies provide increased strength and enhanced performance.



Northwire Makes Endurance Visibly Better.


An Industry-First Design

Rugged connectors, combined with Northwire’s exclusive cable, are proven to exceed 10 million flex cycles, providing reliable connectivity. Cables employ Northwire TPE elastomer jacketing material, making them ideal for applications requiring:

  • Abrasion resistance
  • Flame retardance
  • High and low temperature stability (high temperature
    rating of 80ºC and low temperature of -50ºC)
  • Sunlight/UV resistance
  • Water resistance
  • Weld flash resistance

As a result, the cable assemblies will endure the most rugged industrial and outdoor uses. All are certified to be RoHS compliant.

Your Connection to Performance

Northwire Endurance connectors are internally shielded for greater durability. Screw-lock connectors use combination Phillips/slot screws—providing security against accidental disconnect—unlike thumbscrews. Low profile right angle connectors are configured for either “up” or “down” cable exit. And the rugged connector design features a unique rigid internal construction with a soft strain relief.

Passing the Flex Test

All Endurance cables are designed for high-flex life. Some have passed 20 million cycles on Northwire’s Standardized Flex Test Protocol (NSFTP), Mode A (tick-tock bending test) and Mode B (rolling/torsion flex).*

Mode A—Tick-Tock Bending Test
The cable is flexed 180° over nylon blocks that have a 3" (76.2 mm) radius. There is 1 lb. (0.454 kg) of weight hanging on the cable
as it is flexed at just under 30 cycles per minute.
Mode B—Rolling/Torsion Flex Test
The cable is pulled approximately 18" (457.2 mm) over a 3" (76.2 mm) radius wheel and twisted 360°. All of the twisting takes
place in the 18" (457.2 mm) between the grip and the wheel with a 9-lb. (4.082 kg) weight hanging on the cable as it is twisted.
