GORE® IDC High Flex Ribbon Cables
In high-speed, continuous-flex applications, some cables may degrade or fatigue because of continuous abrasion in high temperatures. With a robust yet flexible construction, GORE IDC High Flex Ribbon Cables remain reliable after continuous use.
Flex applications in high-speed automated and other high-stress devices can cause the highest quality round cables to fail. Over time — and especially in low-vacuum settings and/or in extreme temperatures — the constant flexing and/or abrasion can degrade and fatigue the cables.

High-stress environments can degrade and fatigue cables over time.
In such applications, ribbon power cables outlast standard power cables. The flex life of ribbon cable is 100 times longer than that of round cable, and ribbon cable is one-fourth the weight of round cable. Ribbon cable reduces the mass of moving cable bundles, allowing greater acceleration, less vibration and oscillation, and decreased wear.
GORE IDC High Flex Ribbon Cables provide reliability and superior flex life performance in these demanding, high-stress environments. The cables also demonstrate superior durability despite abrasion, the effects of which can be exacerbated in extreme temperatures. In fact, 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.
