Twist & Flat Speedbloc® IDC Ribbon Cables

For use with the Speedbloc® insulation displacement connectors.,Consists of stranded tinned copper conductors insulated with colour-coded PVC twisted into pairs and then laminated between layers of clear PVC film.,Common conductor for each pair is tan coloured. Twisted sections 457mm long (18 in) reform into 50mm (2 in) flat sections in which the conductors are laminated parallel on a 1.27mm pitch. Insulation displacement connectors can be terminated on the flat section, thereby combining the speed and cost-saving of mass termination with the electrical performance of twisted pairs demanded in high speed digital and data communication equipment.,Each conductor is formed from 7 strands 36 awg (0.13mm diameter) tinned annealed copper wire, 28 awg (0.08mm2) overall.,UL recognised style 2697.

These cables are not to be regarded as power cables or cables for the direct connection of equipment to mains power supplies



Ribbon cables provide a simple, quick and cost-effective solution to mass termination. They also have space and weight saving advantages over other wiring methods and are ideal for use on computers, peripherals, and interface units, audio and digital equipment. Colour coded ribbon cable with alternate twisted pair and parallel conductor sections. Twisting of adjacent conductors reduces crosstalk whilst the flat sections at regular intervals still facilitate easy termination.
