In 2014, custom cable manufacturer Northwire joined The LEMO Group, an internationally respected cable connector leader. The partnership not only widened the availability of exceptional cable assemblies and design engineering services to the manufacturing companies’ customer base, it also provided them with valuable resources and information. A key resource offered by LEMO is the quarterly CONNECTED Magazine. In the most recent issue, the publication covered fascinating topics such as solo yacht racing, robotic animals, and Northwire’s collaboration with Commercial Vehicle Group.

CONNECTED examines the latest findings and most groundbreaking technology in the world of engineering, electronics, energy, and beyond. This new issue of CONNECTED is dedicated to the “resemblance between sports and engineering with our quest for perfection through pushing our performance to the limits,” writes LEMO’s Corporate CEO Alexandre Pesci.

So, it was only natural for LEMO to become a supplier of choice for motor sport and especially for Formula 1 and endurance races.

A significant collaboration highlighted in this season’s issue of CONNECTED is Northwire’s continued partnership with Commercial Vehicle Group. An American owned company, CVG designs and manufactures seating for heavy machinery, such as construction vehicles, tractors, and military land vehicles where the operator is expected to remain seated for eight hours a day. These high-tech seats have created a level of comfortability unmatched within the industry.

With active back massage to stimulate blood flow, automatic adjustment to the operator’s working position, and connectivity to mobile apps, the seats lead to less fatigue and better productivity.

These revolutionary seats aim to isolate the operator from the shock and vibration of the vehicle, which are not only exhausting, but potentially harmful. >

Since these vehicles work in an unforgiving, dusty off-road environment customers expect their seat and the technology that goes with it to be able to withstand anything thrown at it for several decades. This greatly influenced CVG’s decision to partner with Northwire as

“Their commitment to provide the best possible engineering solution service has truly become a group effort with Northwire" explained Jason Cornwall, a lead application engineer for CVG.
