1 tail of high quality 26AWG ribbon cable, 0.5m long. At one end there's typical IDC 16-way plug, matching all 16-way sockets on every board available here.
We use the cable from 3M, and plugs from Harting - definitely no cheap junk that you can buy elsewhere.
- order 4 for each BBS-1K, or MBBS
- order 3 for each LITSW
- order 2 for DMS-2K, MIDI128, BBSP
The 26AWG cable is thicker than commonly used 28-30AWG, which means it's easier to strip and solder, it does not crack so easily, but it's slightly less flexible.
