Assembly maker offers custom copper cables

June 6, 2008 -- Electro Standards Laboratories will build a cable according to a manufacturer's part number, or completely customize one according to user needs.

June 6, 2008 -- Cranston, RI-based Electro Standards Laboratories (ESL) recently announced it has produced more than 4,000 custom copper-based network-cable assemblies at its plant. "ESL offers hard-to-find copper cables in any length and configuration," the company said in a release. "The cables are available in fire-resistant plenum jacketing."

Among its custom-cable offerings is what ESL calls "compatible cables." Users provide the manufacturer's part number and ESL designs a compatible cable.

Additionally, the company can manufacture custom-length T-1 cables with either straight-through or cross pinning, and with either keyed or non-keyed 8-pin modular connectors. ESL also custom designs RS-232 cables, using DB25 connectors. For cables 50 feet or shorter, PVC jacketing is used; low-capacitance jacketing covers cables with extended distances.

Customers may place orders through the manufacturer's online form.
