Dirty Cables: Ribbon Cable + JST PH Connectors

Hi,

Love the Dirty Cables service!

Looking to order some cables using JST PH style connectors with ribbon cable, but when I try to add them, I get the following error:

Wrong cable type. Connector requires stranded cable, this is ribbon cable.

Is this a real limitation from the vendor, or is this just an issue with the cable creator tool?

Thanks,

-John

A bit late.

There is no JST connector that mates a ribbon cable to a PH connector. The housings are intended to be used with crimp connectors, thus the requirement for stranded wire.
