Description: Ribbon cable is really helpful in situations where you need to make a lot of connections without a big mess of wires. Nothing makes a project look more finished than a nice clean wiring harness.

This is a 15ft. length of 6-wire ribbon cable. Check the related products below for crimp-on connectors that will fit this cable.

  • Double rainbow all the way :D

    • I don’t know if that was what they were after: I haven’t seen much in the way of brown in rainbows (:.

      • I think these are colored the same way as resistor bands: wire 1 is brown, wire 2 is red, wire 3 is orange, wire 4 is yellow, wire 5 is green, and wire 6 is blue. (I still think they should have started with 0-black though…)

  • Is this 15 ft per wire or all wires together are 15ft so every wire would be 2.5 ft

  • what gauge are these?

  • This is great, along with the headers you put up! Very useful :) Why are these and the tx/rx'ers not in a new product post? I’m more interested in this stuff! I’m glad I peek :D

USB Bracelet

I made my mom a USB bracelet with a flash drive built in. This was rather handy. Also used it to fly a prototype to around 90,000 ft. The wire is rather fine, and after hand soldering several of these, I recommend using one of the ribbon crimps with it.
