How do you measure cables?

All of our cables are cut @ +13cm. So a 2m cable is cut at 2m13cm. This allows for the loses inside a connector. So a 2m cable will have approximately 2m of visible cable on show. In our workshop we always ensure cables 75cm or shorter are precise. So a 50cm cable will have 50cm of cable on show. Longer cables may vary by 2-8 cm depending on the types of connectors used
