Cable Marking

 

Cable Marking is an essential part of having a recognizable cable that is entirely your own. Therefore, it is important that your cable label is of the right quality so that the marking can withstand the wear and tear it may be exposed to. The way Makeyourcable marks our cables is according to the standard for color coding of electrical components which makes it easy to distinguish between the different lengths.

The cable marking method used is exactly the same as the one we used in Europaz A/S makes use of us, thereby ensuring that what we deliver meets our own requirements and can last at least as long as our own cables with many years in the back, Read more below About us.

Cable Markers

The cable marking consists in its simple form of two parts that are certainly not very complicated.

  1. Your logo as well as the color code that marks the cable length printed on a piece of paper.
  2. A good quality shrink wrap

While this sounds relatively simple, this is often performed incorrectly and therefore results in poor cable marking that either cannot be used or quickly breaks depending on wear. This makes it extremely important that the marking is made correctly and the right materials are used. Read more about us and learn how we at Europaz A/S use the same method ourselves.

Shrinkage on the Cable Marking

One of the components of the selection consists of a piece of good quality shrinkage, to ensure that it lasts for many years. A good piece of shrink wrap in the right quality secure for your cable among other things;

  1. Shrinkage material does not crack during hard wear
  2. Shrinkage stain remains transparent even in hard wear
  3. Shrinkguard protects your selection so it remains intact and easy to read

Although the choice of shrink flex is relatively simple, it is often mounted incorrectly and therefore results in a poor marking that cannot withstand severe wear. It is therefore extremely important that the assembly together with your logo is made correctly. Read more about us and learn how we at Europaz A/S use the same method ourselves.

The cable color codes on the Cable marking

On the Cable Marker there is a length label, each of which has a specific color, which is a very specific value. This cable color code follows the standard for color coding of electronic components, thereby showing the length of the cable so that it can be easily seen when used. Below you will see the color code and its value used to define the length of the cable:

  1. Black: 0
  2. Brown: 1
  3. Red: 2
  4. Orange: 3
  5. Green: 5

As an example of a selection, this means that a 1 meter cable will be marked with your logo, as well as a brown marker for 1 meter. Next, a 15 meter cable will be marked with your logo, as well as a brown and green marker for 15 meters. The picture shows an example with a 10 meter cable marking with the colors Brown and black.
