Ribbon Cables and their applications

Single- and multi-coloured ribbon cables are used e.g. in fixed connections in telecommunication devices or electronic control systems for machines.

Telephone cables in practice

These cables are used not only in telecommunications, but they also proved to be good for standard telephone connections with the most common number of cores.

Silver plated wires

Silver-coated copper leads from BQ Cable come in various diameters, packaged on rolls, in the most common gauges. Copper serves as a flexible supporting structure, while the current flows mainly through the silver coating. The wires are primarily used in high frequency circuits, of MHz and higher, because due to the skin effect the current flows only on the surface of the wire, i.e. the silver that has lower resistivity. Therefore, silver-coated copper wires are especially useful in applications where it is necessary to maximally mitigate any attenuation of the transmitted signal.
