VFD Cable or Spindle cable ?
« on: September 21, 2012, 08:43:16 PM »
what do you guys use, shielded or not?
do you use specialty VFD cable that run for lots of money of just normal cable?

I don't have a VFD but i do use shielded cables. 100% shielding is the best and what i would recommend. You will find that that cable has
a braided wire envelope over complete Al wrap of the wires. The braided side is used for grounding.
