Spectra Strip Ribbon Cable (Ghostbusters 2)

' The ribbon cable on the proton packs in the second movie is made by Spectra Strip. It is still being made with the correct # of wires, 30 pairs (60 wires total). It is model# 132-2801-060 and is readily available from many surplus stores.

On the correct ribbon cable used on the packs there is a 2-3" section of the ribbon cable that is not twisted at all. This part is usually concealed inside the curl and wrap of the ribbon cable as it goes into the cable clamp. There are alternatives out there, that do not have the straight section, as well as others that have fewer wires and ones with different colored wires.

The color sequences for the ribbon cable, if you are feeling adventurous and want to make your own, or cannot find some is as follows:

Black - Brown - White - Brown - Purple - Brown - Blue - Brown - Green - Brown - Yellow - Brown - Orange - Brown - Red - Brown - Darker Brown - Brown. Repeat that pattern a total of 3 times, until you have 60 wires total.
