Default Ribbon material

Hi All,

I have a small roll of this ribbon material (Kapton?) it is 130mm wide the alu strips are 8mm with a 10mm gap, I think it was made for Carver originally.

If anyone is interested in buying some, I am asking 15 euro per meter+ postage at cost.


Cheers

Tom

I reckon its made for a 3 row magnet planar

but I expect impedance will be low
