Looking for specific wire.

8 posts in this topic

Anyone know where I can find the type of wire like in the photo below?

It's common in guitar pickups. It's 4 core, one bare wire and shielded. Outer diameter is about 3mm. I need reels of this stuff, like 100 meters. Doesn't have to be 3 mm OD, 4 mm OD preferably but must be shielded.

I manage to find something similar in maplins but it's 22 awg and OD is over 4.5mm which is too fat.

Anyone?

im not 100% sure, but i dont think cat 5 is usually shielded?

Cat 5e or cat 6 might do the job though.

Both cables have too many cores. Yes I can just not connect them but that's half a cable wasted essentially.

Do a search for "Control Cable". CY cable would probably do the job.

Good prices here: http://www.csecables.com/acatalog/Flexible-Control-Cable.html

Thanks but their 4 core CY cables CSA is too big.

I found some at farnell, orderd it earlier, hopefully their measurements and tech spec sheets are correct. Thanks for the help guys.

You can buy it shielded. 

Is there no identification on the insulation?
