Classification 

We have divided cable for practical reasons, as follows: 

Cables for computers 
Telephone Cables 
power cable 
Cables for computers 

We distinguish first by: 

Interface cables for hard drives 
USB cable 
sound Cables 
Video Cables 
Interface cables for hard drives are: 

IDE cable 
SCSI cable 
SATA cable 
SAS cable 
ZIF cable 
USB cable 

USB (Universal Serial Bus) cable, as the name rightly suggests, are used for a variety of purposes. The most common are USB2.0 and USB3.0. The high-speed USB3.0 port is enabled by default in blue to help distinguish. Can be connected via USB, among other things: 

internal and external hard drives and optical drives 
Input devices such as keyboard, mouse, cameras 
USB sticks for various applications, such as Radio, temperature sensor, password dongles, data sticks, 
Connecting accessories / gadgets such as fans, notebook coolers, coffee warmer, USB lights and much more. Here, the USB port is only used for power supply. 
Telephone Cables 

Our telephone cable category covers all standard in telephony species from the coiled handset cord through TAE cable to ISDN cables:

power cable 

The external power supply of computers is usually about power cord:

For power supplies, however Euro8 cables are on the primary side usually used for power supply:

However, some model ranges require power cord with Mickey Mouse connector:

Internally the power supply for hard drives and optical disc drives is now usually realized via the SATA connectors. In addition to the contacts for the data transmission, it includes the connections for the power supply. The SATA connector is both combined. Separate connector for data and power, however, are quite common. Here is an example of a combined SATA connector, which has next to the SATA data cable via a Molex connector for power supply: 


SATA Power Cable Molex 

Video Cables 

These are known to be transmitted by the video interface: 

VGA cable 
DVI cable 
HDMI cable 
FireWire Cables 
A special form is splitter cable, in which the video signals are routed to two display devices. Suitable graphics cards that support multi-monitoring, often have a so-called DMS-59 output. The matching splitter cable is then primarily a DMS-59 connector, two secondary VGA connector, two DVI connectors or one VGA and one DVI connector. The primary side of the splitter cable can also be designed as a DVI-I connector. DVI-I also supports dual monitoring.
