Cable combs in black for 16-pin sleeved cables in the OPEN version are highly versatile. You can apply them to your cables and take them off at any time. These cable combs are ideal for initial routing of the cable flow until the sleeved cables are "trained" and hold their flow by themselves. Then you can take off the cable combs so you don't have any visual disturbances anymore. Black cable combs are best used on black or very dark grey sleeved cables. On these shades, the cable combs will almost be invisible. Of course you can also use transparent cable combs for a minimum of visibility.
Only the most advanced, latest generation acrylic materials are used to achieve an amazing strength at a thickness of only 2.9 mm. This reduced cable comb thickness is the key for our cable comb philosophy that the obtrusion of the cable sleeving flow is minimized by the application of combs. Cable combs should only serve the function to guide your cables only as much as absolutely necessary and be used as minimal as possible.
The entry of the top opening in the OPEN cable combs has a width of 3.2 mm. Your sleeved cables should have at least this outer diameter so they cannot fall out. The inner width of the circle shaped cut-out of the OPEN cable comb has a diameter of 3.8 mm, which naturally limits your sleeved cables to an outer diameter of 3.8 mm in order to fit into the cable comb. MDPC-X cable sleeving adds 1.1 mm to 1.2 mm to the outer diameter of your wire. Combined with MDPC-X 15 AWG wire (2.50 mm OD), you have a perfectly matching diameter of ~3.7 mm. Combined with MDPC-X 17 AWG wire (2.0 mm OD), you have a the minimum necessary diameter of 3.2 mm. With standard wire sizes found on today’s power supplies (16 AWG or 18 AWG between 2.1mm and 2.6mm) in combination with MDPC-X cable sleeves, you will also be in the needed diameter range for our cable combs.
ATTENTION: Our cable combs are sometimes delivered with protective foil on one or both sides of the cable comb. Make sure to peel the protective foil off.
