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.

Ribbon Cables

Ribbon cables from BQ CABLE come in grey or multi-coloured options. Oftentimes, you can find multi-coloured ribbon cables with duplicated colours. When selecting a ribbon cable, you should consider its cross section area, as well as the external dimensions of the cable. The sheath is usually made of PVC. As for the electrical parameters, the most important value is the maximum voltage. However, parameters such as the temperature range and the type of wire (e.g. stranded), as well as the material of the conductor (e.g. tin-plated copper) are quite important as well.
