Not sure where to start?
Consider these Four Factors when Designing a Retractile Coil Cord


Will the cable be exposed to extreme temperature or any fluids to possibly include chemicals?

Retracted vs. Extension lengths

Northwire utilizes a 5:1 ratio. If a cable is 5 feet when retracted, it can extend up to 25 feet.

Tangent direction and length

Parallel (tangential) vs. drop (axial).

Overall diameter of the coil or coil O.D.

This will determine what size mandrel is utilized when baking in industrial sized ovens.
