Looking for 3 core cable like on RC servos
« on: November 15, 2014, 09:55:58 pm »
I've been searching the major electronics distributors looking for a roll of 3 core cable, like what is used on RC servos - 3 conductor ribbon cable, about 28AWG, but I can't find it.

I'm guessing I'm just not using the correct name for the product.  Any suggestions on what to search for?

Googling for RC Servo cable only finds extension cables, not rolls.

Thanks,
Frank

  • There's more value if you figure it out yourself!

Local retail sources will be hard to find or relatively expensive.
Go where the wire is most used - China.

eBay has a lot of sellers in this space.   I've had custom RC leads (with connectors) made in the hundreds for very decent prices.
Just buying a 50/100m roll of cable should be very reasonable with  ~10-day delivery. 
Anything less - then you're not buying cable, your buying some hobby wires.
Don't ask a question if you aren't willing to listen to the answer.

Here is a 10 conductor ribbon cable on DigiKey.  Just peel off the extra conductors that are not needed.
