The biggest advantage of ribbon cables is to allow mass termination to specially designed insulation-displacement connectors (IDC), although ribbon cables can also be terminated by using crimp contacts or solder-bucket connections. The IDC termination methodology allows the conductor of an insulated wire or cable to make contact by a connection process which forces a sharpened blade through the insulation, eliminating the need to strip the wire of insulation before connecting. IDC connectors are categorized by pin spacing, number of pins, and number of rows.

Asides recognizing ribbon cables, the confusion lies in choosing them. In choosing ribbon cables, there are quite several factors to put into consideration. These cables are:
Pitch is spacing. It refers to the spacing of conductors within the ribbon cable. Pitch depends on the cable requirements and specifications. Some examples of pitches include 0.5mm, 1mm, 1.25mm, 2mm.
The ribbon cable pitch of the connector and that of a ribbon cable is never the same. The ribbon cable is always half of the connector pitch. By this implication, when there is a two-row connector pitch, the ribbon cable pitch is usually half of the connector’s pitch.
Another way of determining the pitch of the ribbon cable is by measuring outside edge of the cable and then divide the figure by the total number of connectors.
Ribbon cables tolerate all sorts of temperatures be it harsh or friendly. But, if ribbon cables are to operate perfectly in unfavorable temperatures, a silicon jacket is the best bet.
In choosing ribbon cables, flexibility is a necessary factor. Since ribbon cables are flexible, there is still a need to purchase a more flexible type if need be. In cases where the design is of limited space or requires a more flexible type, purchase a custom ribbon cable with greater flexibility that suits the job.
Put into consideration the life span of the ribbon cable you intend to purchase. Like every other electrical component, it is necessary to choose a ribbon cable that can survive the test of time. Choose a ribbon cable that is adequately proven by professionals and also assured of a long life cycle.
Fire resistant is another factor to consider when choosing a ribbon cable. The importance is not only for the benefits of the electrical equipment but also for safety too. Make it a point of duty to settle for a ribbon cable type that is in line with the EU’s Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directives and also fit according to fire safety standards.
To ensure that your cable assembly or wire harness delivers the best fit and the best performance, we utilize wire termination components from some of the industry’s most trusted manufacturers, including:

What is the difference between a wire and a cable?
The core of the differentiation between wire harnesses and cable assemblies lies in the fact that wires and cables are two entirely separate things. A wire is a single strand of a conductive material like tin or copper. Once a bundle of wires is twisted or braided together and contained within a protective outer sheath, they have become a cable.
Why are wire harness & cable assembly often confused?
By nature, both wire harnesses and cable assemblies contain cables and wires. The main difference is in the engineering of the component to match the application. Wire harnesses are low-cost means with which to provide a bundle of cables and wires some degree of protection, while keeping them organized for ease of installation and future service. Cable assemblies provide a much more robust protection by keeping components snug within a rugged outer sheath. Cable assemblies are meant to be used in demanding environments where things like heat, friction, or moisture could prematurely wear out a cable or wire.
