These standards apply for signal wiring. Many variation on the theme of screw shields exist.

Standard wire colors – Electrical Engineering Stack Exchange

So yeah, there are standards. I know it doesn’t matter, but I am curious: Best thing you can do when you start breadboarding is to use as many different colors as possible, so that you can tell them easier apart if the wiring would become a bit messy. Indeed power red and black. In electronicsred is usually positive power, black is ground, and the rest can be anything. Same for analog input pins A0, A1, Most of the time I have little trouble seeing the difference between red for power supply and red for pin 2 same for blackbecause they come from an entirely different location on the Arduino.


It would be smart to avoid black or red for signals, but otherwise use what you have. Sometimes, you will find ribbon cables or other pre-made cables with colors in one of these versions. Standard wire colors Ask Question. Personally I use this trick in many cases where I have to wire many connections. By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Cookie PolicyPrivacy Policyand our Terms of Service. I have always loved electricity and have made simple circuits since I was a little baby.

Multiple signals with power and ground are often convenient to carry on a ribbon cable. Are there other standards that are commonly used for other applications?

In that case, you end up with whatever colors the cable has. Many pins on Arduino have more than one function, which makes it difficult to identify a pin for eg. RxD as in your next project this pin can have an entirely different function. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.

But like the answers to this question say you sometimes can’t even rely on black being ground. At work I use a set of 10 different solid colors, and you may find two colored wires as well, which 47010 you a lot more variation.

Color code according to DIN 47100

Blair Fonville colorr, 2 8 Post as a guest Name. If you install house wiring, you should follow this code or whatever local code there might be in your jurisdiction but never count on others having done so.

Sign up using Facebook. But I was able to find this page on their site, which will pop up various lightboxes ugh, you suck JQuery containing color-codings — in English, even!


Sponge Bob 2, 14 35 With black and red you have mentioned the ones which are rather standard. I attach wires to Arduino ones and they seldom come off once connected.

Supply wires for small voltage DC often use red for positive, black for ground and blue for negative.

Email Required, but never shown. Some are more expensive than others, mine look like these Personally I use this trick in many cases where I have to wire many connections. Dln is very common that Red is “Positive” and Black is “Negative.

Can someone give me a list please? The best thing about standards is that there are so many to chose from. If you need more than 10 wires, combinations are used. In this manner it is relatively easy to see which wire is connected to which pin.

Obligatory link to the XKCD comic about standards: There are so many of them that it’s effectively the same as having no standard, as every possible wire arrangement likely has a standard that describes it.
