Custom color power cables allow you to differentiate between cables powering multiple devices and home electronics. Organize your cables with Cables.com

Few things are as intimidating as a large tangle of electronic cables powering numerous important home electronics and devices. When you can't be sure what cable is powering the TV and which one operates the lamps, you run the risk of disconnecting the wrong device at the wrong time. Tangled cables can also be a safety risk. Color-coding your power cords is a good way not only to know which cable belongs to which electronics, but to make cable management easier and more straightforward. 

Cables.com allows you to purchase your cables in custom colors, lengths, and configurations. You may need a custom cable in order to differentiate between the different types or uses for the cables powering your home or business. Whether you're looking for PDU power cables or fiber optic cables, take a look at your options for custom cables from Cables.com.

Why Buy Custom Color Cables?

Custom colors allow you to differentiate between different types of cables, or to give your home or office space a more sleek, cohesive look. 

"Standard" cable colors are generally black or gray, meant to blend in discretely with an office environment's furniture. But the features that make these cables inconspicuous also make them difficult to organize. If you can't tell your cables apart from each other, it's very easy to unplug the wrong one and lose power or connectivity, and also essential work that can't be replaced. It's very possibly a mistake you (literally) can't afford to make. Choosing to custom color-code your cables may seem excessive or even frivolous, but being able to more easily identify specific cables will help keep them running safer and longer.

Cables.com gives you the option of purchasing your color power cord in many colors and configurations. Just click on a power cord heading to find the type, length, and color of power cable that you need quick and easy. Our website has been set up to specifically cover the most common type of cables in various lengths.

This includes our popular C20 to C19 PDU power cables, which are intended for use between a server and a PDU in most data center environments. They're manufactured with a 20 amp rated jacket for optimal performance in critical conditions, and are UL Listed for compliance in all locations. This green cable will also be easy to spot, cutting down on confusion in the server room.
