  • 1-foot Ethernet cable

    It would be nice if you also offered 1-foot length Ethernet cables. I normally have the Ethernet switch near the PLC's CPU, so a 3-foot cable is too long. I've been sourcing the 1-foot cable from McMaster-Carr.
    Why worry? If you've done the best you can, worrying won't make it any better

    I even use 6" fairly often.

      Automation's ethernet cables are pretty expensive though.

        Yeah, but they're really nice quality. I hardly ever buy Ethernet cables though, except specialized nichey ones like 6 and 12", because my partner and I do contract installations of systems where they send way more cables than are needed, so we get a constant inflow. For really long ones we just terminate our own from boxed bulk cable.
