Connect Cables to Connectors, Penetrators, Back Shell and Overmolds

To connect connectors to cables, you will need to add connectors and cables to your drawing. To search components from the Anekonnect editor, click the Add Component button on the left-hand side.


Then you can enter a part number or search through the catalog.  Once you've located the cable you'd like to add to your drawing, click the cable part number. In our example, it's CS087. The cable will populate in the engineering drawing. You can move the different components and cross section around as needed by clicking to select and then dragging around the drawing. 

Now repeat the same steps to locate your connector of choice. The connector components and cross section with populate on the drawing. 


You can then select the end of the cable and drag it to attach to the connector (look for the purple box), to t urn the connector and cable into one assembly.
