Hi All,

I'm trying to come up with a proper method of naming cables in our machine.( we develop vending machines.)

Currently im using the following structure for cable names:

Host-Target-cable Type

for example: IPC-NAC-D ; which is Industrial PC - Note Acceptor - Data Cable

But I believe there should be a more standard method of naming cables in the machine which can provide more information. I need these names to be printed and put on the cable at both ends.

Do any of you know a standard way for naming? Any suggestions or experience?

Thanks in Advance...

Never known cables to be labelled, only seen them numbered or counted off against pins on the connector and both referenced against either the drawing or O&M manual
