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 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.

Additionally, using e.g. IDC connectors, the cables can be used:

  • in wire-to-board static connections,
  • in connections between modules of breadboards, HDDs, or boards with displays and keyboards.

Thanks to their construction, separating a core from the rest of the ribbon is very simple, and it facilitates direct installation in devices or connectors.

All ribbon cables are available in the most common 1.27mm cable pitch with 8 to 64 cores, which means they can be used even in very demanding applications.
