Cable carriers ensure the safe supply of energy, data, and other media, and a new contest aims to honor the engineers who make the most of them. Cable manufacturer igus inc., East Providence, R.I., is running its “Vector” competition for a second time to reward challenging applications that incorporate cable carrier systems.

The first competition only accepted submissions from European companies, but this year’s contest is open to entrants worldwide. Winners of the Vector awards will be rewarded with cash prizes up to 5,000 euro at the Hanover Fair to be held April 19 to 23 in Germany, although winners do not have to attend the awards ceremony. Entry forms and additional information can be found at www.vector-award.com and the final date for entries is February 28.
