With nearly 100 years of wire manufacturing experience, Consolidated Electronic Wire & Cable is known throughout the industry for providing customers with the highest quality custom cord solutions.
Recently, a customer in the telecommunications industry needed communication/ethernet cords with strain relief. This is one of the most common types of retractile cords, and we were well equipped to take on the project.
After full manufacturing, we used custom over molding to fabricate RJ 45 mold connectors for both ends of the cord, each of which featured strain relief to ensure that the cords would not pull out of the connector ends. These cords far exceeded standard manufacturer’s models, with over molded and booted RJ 45 connectors that provided protection over the clip itself.
When finished, the cords measured 4” retracted and 20” extended, with one end of the cord including a 12” tangent with the booted RJ 45 connector and the other end including an 18” tangent with another RJ 45 connector.
After undergoing thorough electric and spark testing, the full order of 5,000 communication cords was delivered to our client on the West Coast within just 5-6 weeks.
