High Performance Color Coded Cable

GORE IDC Ribbon Cables provide excellent electrical performance and protection from extreme thermal and chemical environments. These cables have industry-standard individual conductor color coding for accurate discrete wire termination and cable polarity identification.  The color coding can be in accordance with EIA-359-A or DIN VDE 47100. They are vacuum compatible, resistant to aging, and conform to UL Styles 1371 and 1538.

The GTS811 cable series is used in applications with discrete wiring/IDC terminations, systems with soldered/IDC terminations, high reliability systems, and in high/low 
temperature environments.
