This 12 inch (30cm), flat servo extension cable has 22-AWG wires and female “JR”-style connectors on both ends, the same kind of connector commonly found on RC hobby servos. It can be used to make connections between devices with 0.1" 3-pin male headers, such as between RC servo controllers or RC receivers and motor controllers with an RC interface. It can also be a convenient way to connect various 3-pin sensors to a robot controller. The cable’s conductors each consist of 60 strands, making it more flexible than standard servo cables.
The cable’s female connectors are the same as those found on most generic servos and fits nicely with 0.1" male headers, but is often referred to as “male” in the RC hobby industry. These female-to-female cables are available in two styles: flat, with wires stuck together side by side, and twisted, with wires twisted around each other to decrease electromagnetic interference (EMI).
Note: Cable colour may vary from what is shown in the product picture. Possible colour combinations are black, red, and white or brown, red, and orange.
Servo Cable Colour Convention:
- Brown or black = ground (GND, battery negative terminal)
- Red = servo power (Vservo, battery positive terminal)
- Orange, yellow, white, or blue = servo control signal line
