Have you ever looked into the inside of a computer? If not, next time you upgrade your computer or it has any sort of work done to it why don’t you observe what the technician is doing.
You are likely to see all manner of cables inside, which will include a variety of shapes, sizes and colours. Still, there aren’t any jams despite the traffic of cables because of one specific factor, the jacketed cables.
Jacketed cables are a safe and convenient way to connect the various components inside the computers. With a lot of components in the computers that are arranged in a compact case, it is possible that they will come into contact with each other. This is likely to result in malfunctioning because each component is very sensitive in nature.
Technicians avoid this by protecting them with the jacketed cables. The smaller size of the components and the close constellation do not permit individual cables to each component. So, there will be a number of cables in a jacketed cable that enables the technician to connect the components with each other for a smooth functioning of the computer.
Only a small portion of the cables are exposed and they are safely soldered to the components to ensure that there are no exposed ends.
The jacketed cables save a lot of time and, with standard colour coding of cables enabling the technicians to connect them to components with precision, they are valued highly within the electronics components industry. Jacketed cables are compact in nature, which also helps in reducing the space required inside the computer to connect them.
