5-pin OPEN single-row (SR) cable-combs in transparent are made by Garett Fraser in South Africa. OPEN cable combs can be applied to and taken off of your cables at any time. With transparent cable combs in the OPEN version you can almost invisibly route your cables. The OPEN cable comb version in transparent is the least obtrusive way and our personal preference if cable combs are used. 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.
