  • SHC68-68-EP
  • SH68M-68F-EPM Cable

Issue Details

I am looking at the Dimensional Drawing for the SHC68-68-EPM. I see multiple colors being listed for the same pin number. For instance, pin 7 is listed as YELLOW/RED, GREEN/YELLOW, and YELLOW/BROWN.
 
What does this mean?

Solution

The pins listed multiple times are linked together, as they are Digital Grounds. This setup gives the twisted pairs a signal and ground wire for controlled impedance. The cross section may provide more background.
