Patch Cord Has Color-Coded Offset Ground Plug

May 1, 2001

Designed for use as a patch cord or as a jumper between test panels, DMMs or other test lab instruments, the Model 6283-C Patch Cord is the latest addition to the company's line of double banana plugs. The new patch cord allows the user to easily connect double banana plugs to safety-rated banana jacks while improving connection accuracy and speed. With a color-coded offset ground lead identifying the hot side as red and the shielded side as black, the design of the 6283-C provides immediate distinction between ground and hot leads to minimize installation time and enhance connection accuracy. Once the connection is made, the offset design allows the user to verify the connection without unplugging the cable. The assembly also eliminated the need for using two individual cords, thereby simplifying set-up, minimizing errors and ensuring proper connection at both ends. The patch cord is priced from $12.50 to $13.70 each in standard lengths of 1' to 5'.
