    • How much do you need?:  Some suppliers can only handle certain amounts and sizes, so you need to have this locked down from day one.
    • What are your lead-time demands?:  Rush delivery usual takes a week, while regular orders might take between 7-10 weeks.
    • What are your essential cable requirements?:  These can include cable type, whether they are to be used indoor or outdoor, and exposure temperatures.
    • What kind of conductors/insulation/shielding/jacketing/filler do you need?:  There are many material choices for all of these, so you need to do your homework, or have an expert, like Consolidated Electronic, guide you through the process.
    • Do your cables need to meet or exceed certain industry standards?:  These include popular standards like RoHS, OSHA, and Mil-Spec.
