U-shaped Toslink and MiniPlug Optical Cables
 Short Application
 


We can make extremely short Toslink and MiniPlug optical cables for "U"- shaped type applications where optical transmitters/receivers are in close proximity to each other.

Samples of these applications can be seen on Head-Fi forum as posted by one of our customers (scroll down)



Short MiniPlug to Toslink 5.0mm cable
The sample on the top left with the 2.2mm cable is 9.5cm (3.75in)  long "tip to tip".  If bent in a "U" shape it is suitable for "center plug" to "center plug" ports, distance 12mm to 22mm apart.



The sample on the bottom left is the 5mm cable, 10.5cm (4.1in) long "tip to tip".  If bent in a "U" shape it is suitable for "center plug" to "center plug" ports, distance ~14mm to ~17mm apart.

When bent into a "U" shape the connectors are parallel to each other
- with a 2.2mm cable, the connectors will be parallel to each other at a distance of 12mm to 22mm.
- with a 5.0mm cable, the connectors will be parallel to each other at a distance of 14mm to 17mm.

These are the shortest cables we can make with shells.  If we remove the shells the distance from "center to center" can  be 8.1mm.

These are just examples.  

Distances between the centers are regulated by the length of the cables and are customized.

How to Order:

Provide a picture showing front ports with a ruler beside it, like on a picture below.
We will calculate cable length and angle (if needed) from the picture,  good example of a picture below:

How short can they be:

a) MiniPlug to MiniPlug  / Toslink to MiniPlug / Toslink to Toslink cables with color shells for a "U" shaped cable (* see note below):
- minimum distance from center to center:  11mm (0.43in) /  cable length: Tip-2-Tip 8cm; the shells will be touching each other.  (with shells you can not get any closer)
*Note:  With such a short distance, 11mm,  we might remove the boot for maximum flexibility.

In an example above 11mm center to center the assembly length will be:
- Toslink-to-Toslink (
Tip-2-Tip) 8cm (3.15in)
- Toslink-to-MiniPlug (Tip-2-Tip) 8.7cm (3.44in)
- MiniPlug-to-MiniPlug (Tip-2-Tip) 9.5cm (3.77in)
* These length are for information only, for "U" shape application do not measure/provide cable length unless you know what you are doing, provide distance Center Port to Center Port.

b.) Extreme: shell is REMOVED (removing the shell does not impact the transmission).
- distance from center to center:  ~8.1mm (0.31in).  This assembly will be 7cm (2.75in) long.
Nobody can make such cables shorter than this :-)

購 入法:
写真のような"U" 字の最短ケーブルを購入するためにはまず中心間距離(center to center )を実測してください。
たとえばiBasso D1ならば30mmでHeadroom Micro portable 2007ならば25mmです。
そしてプラグのカバー(shell)のありなしを指定します。カバーは音質には影響しません。
* カバーありの場合、カバーの色を指定します。最短の中心間距離は11mm(このときプラグ同士がくっつく)になります。この場合の全体の長さは8.0cm になります。(長さは端末が角かミニかで異なります)
* カバーなしの場合、"remove shell"と書き添えてください。また最短の中心間距離は8.1mmとなります。この場合の全体の長さは7.0cmになります。
