Cable Reels for Custom Cables and Test Leads

From CLIFF Electronics.



CLIFF Electronics manufactures test leads for a number of market-leading electrical test equipment OEMs and is now offering its rugged cable reel empty to allow customers to create their own bespoke cable assemblies.


CLIFF’s empty cable reel for custom assemblies


Cliff’s popular standard test leads are predominately used by electrical test and PAT safety testers, electrical contractors and test and repair houses. They are popular as replacements for damaged OEM versions. Offering their customers the empty cable reel allows them to load it with the cable and connector of their choice without having to meet large, minimum order quantities or incur NRE charges for factory-assembled bespoke versions. Custom cable options include fibre-optic, fiber-optic, audio, coaxial and more.


An elegant solution ... for one-off or low volume special cable reels.


With overall dimensions of 240 × 130 × 176 mm the ABS cable reel has a simple “snap-and-screw” assembly. A recess is provided on both sides of the handle for product marking or branding.


John Hall, Managing Director of CLIFF Electronics, comments, “We are a major designer and manufacturer of test lead sets supplied with many well-known brands of test meters, as well as major suppliers to popular brands of after-market test lead sets. We are frequently asked for one-off or low volume special cable reels which are not economical to manufacture. Allowing end users to buy the cable reel empty and assemble it themselves is an elegant solution to these enquiries.”.


Cliff takes great care in ensuring their standard test lead products are fully rated for all aspects of BS EN ISO 9001 particularly with regard to voltage and current ratings, creepage distances, cable specification and insulation ratings. All Cliff products are marked with CAT ratings where required.


All Cliff standard test leads use high quality cable with two layers of insulation, designed so that the white under-layer becomes visible if the outer layer becomes damaged. This provides a visual alert of a potential safety hazard.




As well as the price advantage of buying direct from the manufacturer, Cliff offers customers the opportunity to increase their sales with a full test lead range which meets the needs of test equipment for contractors, PV installers and PAT users.


As the original manufacturer Cliff can also offer customised customized branding and labeling if required, and undertake the manufacture of any other type of test lead sets to meet local or unique requirements.


Wholesalers, distributors and customers are all assured that Cliff test lead sets are manufactured using the same double insulated cable, components, tolerances and standards which are supplied to OEMs.


All Cliff test lead sets and components are manufactured in our own ISO 9001 certified factories and are RoHS / REACH compliant.


Cliff test lead sets are packaged in reusable pouches designed for efficient trade counter display.


Cliff test leads and accessories are available direct or via major worldwide wholesalers.



Providing quality components for decades.
