Ribbon cable wire for connectors:
A ribbon cable wire (also known as multi-wire planar cable) is a cable with many conducting wires running parallel to each other on the same flat plane. As a result the cable is wide and flat. Its name comes from its resemblance to a piece of ribbon. Ribbon cables are usually seen for internal peripherals in computers, such as hard drives, CD drives and floppy drives. On some older computer systems they were used for external connections as well. The ribbon-like shape interferes with computer cooling by disrupting airflow within the case and also makes the cables awkward to handle, especially when there are a lot of them; as a result, round cables have almost entirely replaced ribbon cables for external connections and are increasingly being used internally as well.
Cable wire Features:
- Color coding is practiced and implemented in ribbon cables to avoid reverse connections.
- The edge of the cable marked with a red stripe is connected to pin 1 on the connector. Also, different colored cables have been made available for easier identification.
- Ribbon cabling is used for data transmission and communications.
- It is often chosen for computer cable applications, where it is used as internal wiring for hard drives, CD drives, and more.
- Ribbon cables are also commonly used as internal wiring for other electronics and appliances.
