Custom Printed Cable Jacket

A customer specializing in audio sensor monitoring equipment required a proprietary cable with their name and part number printed on the cable jacket.

PrintedCableJacketPortfolio-retouchedIn addition, the customer needed put-ups of 5,000’ in 1,000’ continuous lengths. The cable wire required an outside diameter of .267” with four shielded conductors twisted into two pairs. The cable needed to have a 300 volt rating to withstand temperatures of -40ᵒC to 80ᵒC and comply with UL, CSA and RoHS standards.

Consolidated ensured it met tolerances of +/- .010” and we also performed the required conductivity tests. We produced and shipped the first 25,000’ lot, within a three week lead time.
