DCX Series Cables
The DCX Family of motion controllers use 26 conductor IDC ribbon cables to connect the DCX plug-in function modules to the DCX breakout boards. For our customers' convenience, we stock 6 ft. (2M) ribbon cable assemblies. Custom lengths can also be ordered, but lead-times may apply.
