Custom Ribbon Cable


Custom Ribbon Cable

If someone were to mention flat ribbon cables, most people would picture computer hard drives, CD drives and automated termination equipment. At Allied Wire and Cable, we also think of beautiful verandas, thanks to the recent opportunity to build a custom ribbon cable that would be used in lighted lanais for one of our customers. A manufacturer of LED lighting for marine environments, this customer's business meets needs in a lot of niche applications—and their custom cable request gave us the chance to help them shine.

The customer came to us with a design for a custom ribbon cable perfect for their application because of the unique benefits of flat cable. The flat construction allows for greater flexibility and the ability to lay flush against surfaces in tight places, making it ideal for accent lighting.They asked for an 18 AWG, 4 conductor co-extruded heat bonded ribbon cable with a PVC jacket and a color code that was customized to meet the specific needs of this application. The custom ribbon cable was rated to 300V and was UL recognized for 720-hour sunlight resistance.

At the time of the custom cable request, the LED lighting manufacturer was just a first-time Allied Wire and Cable customer. In fact, they had been ordering custom flat cable from another provider but decided to give us a shot after being continually displeased with their service. Happy with our lead time, competitive pricing and high-quality customized product, this customer has turned to Allied Wire and Cable for their wire and cable needs ever since.
