Conductive Ribbon – 3-Conductor (1 yard)
This rather fancy conductive ribbon is essentially a fabric with 3 conductors woven into the ribbon. It measures roughly 0.2″ wide and 0.03″ thick. You will get a 1 yard (~3 foot long) section of the ribbon. It has very little (negligible) resistance to it.
The material is 68% tinsel and 32% polyester.
It has 3 discrete conductors, which means that you can transmit power, ground, and signal with a single ribbon!
It’s relatively flexible and durable.
As long as your iron isn’t too hot, it solders easily and makes for a good addition to any wearable electronics project.
Composition (by weight):
- 68% stranded tinsel wire
- 32% polyester
Electrical properties (per conductor):
- Resistance (typ.) = 0.3 Ohm/meter
- Resistance (max.) = 0.5 Ohm/meter
- Approx. AWG equivalency = 32 ga.
