    What do you call this type of cable, ultra low voltage striped very thin cable..

    Trying to find some to buy but not really sure what to search for? Only found this by a rough search through google images

    Thanks!

    It'd help if we knew what you wanted to use it for.
    (And if you plan to terminate the ends yourself, some types are difficult to work with)

    It will be used for the same purpose as pictured, as an IR emitter though instead of to a stereo jack it will be to PCB pads. No more than ~5v, multistrand, 2 conductors. I believe the cable is usually used for this (ir) or after DC transformers, the stripe indicating the + / signal - colours aren't a must have but nice to have for consistency. I've used it before just not bought it so not sure of what to search for...

    Generally just called side by side wire or speaker wire... Pick the gauge you want and do a search for it...
