its okay...but only 10' long....your going to need 20-30' of each run depending on your controller location. Plus, your steppers don't need to be shielded - only your control circuit wiring.

18 gauge is ok (0.82 mm2) only thing is the aluminium shield, I only used stranded shield
also I think there are more than 7 strands in a single wire in mine, and it should be more flexible than this one.
This looks like cables used for alarms etc... not sure how it will handle bending.

What are you using it for? The listing doesn't show that its rated for flexing though, you may want check on that. After doing a lot of research myself, I found that the more strands per core the more durable and flexible. Price is nice though.

Usually, the strand number is proportional to flexibility of the cable. More strands per core, more flexible.

I also found this on ebay at the moment there is nothing wrong with my stepper motor cables but i been using them for over 5 years with no problem.
but would hate to have a problem and get stuck waiting for cables.
so i am going to order 100 feet to keep.
my machine is a shopbot using a Mach 3 controller that i built with allot of help
from people on this forum.

my stepper motors are not using screened cables.
and as there is no advantage using screened cables
I will stick to unscreened
thanks again
paul

Just remember guys, that screening keeps noise in and also keeps it out. You need it on both sides of the coin. Keep the noisy signals from extending out to the sensitive control signals and to keep the sensitive control signals shielded from the noise!

McMaster-Carr, as great as they are for getting things to you quickly, tend to have slightly higher prices overall. I have some leftover wire from my build, I sent you an e-mail, let me know if you're interested in it.
