High Flex Life Cable

GORE IDC High Flex Ribbon Cables provide reliability and superior flex life performance in demanding environments. The GFX617 cable series has sparked a small revolution in high speed continuous-flex applications because no other cables on the market can demonstrate comparable flex life. The GFX617 cable series is .050" pitch ribbon cable with conductors available in either 28 or 26 AWG. These cables conform to UL Style 20453. These cables are often used in linear motion, inspection, and pick-and-place applications.>/p>
