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.
