HI,
i need some help finding cable for my Samsung servo motors, the cable for the encoders i mean. Bellow is the original one name. I started searching for general SY cable 12 core but can not find thinner than 1mm2. As we seen from bellow i need ~26AWG which makes 0.1288mm2.
I need a cut per meter or 50m bobbin. Or if sb has a long piece of the samsung or similar from some servo drive, please PM me. I am in between exchanging all with new or just attaching some pieces to make them large enough.

Thanks in advance.


Samsung Cable E108683 AWM 2464 VW-1 TY 80c 300V 26AWG TAIYOUNG


PS. I started looking at 50m hdmi cables for around 60 euro, 24AWG, rated 30v, i think not a big deal. Just cut the end of my 15m HDMI cable and it seems right for the purpose, what do you say?

Does it need to be suitable for drag chain?

Thanks Clive,
I had a feeling you knew the answer


Does it need to be suitable for drag chain?
yes, it has to be, that's why stranded.

Not all stranded cables are good for drag chains.

I would go for this one: http://www.helukabel.de/en/en/products/produkte_detail.html?j_language=en&productKey=STD_49620

Thanks! I agree. The Samsung servo cable is much nicer than any cable i have seen. Ok, that seems also hell of a cable. Cant figure how to see the price and buy it though. have to contact them today later.

how much do you need? We have a lot of offcuts of cable that we used to use.
but if you need good quality encoder that is designed for cable chains, then it will not be cheap.
We sell 16 core flexible cable, but it will cost you £8 per meter.

Thanks but for £8/m i will go with original Samsung cable, which is around 5€/m in eBay or automation shops.


I need only 1 off cut around 3m, or 1 piece 5m and 3 pieces 2 meters if i am just to solder ends to elongate.

But as i see it I will use the HDMI cable for the moment. the other day i won an auction at ebay for 50m HDMI cable 24AWG for 20 euro, so i could use it to rewire all encoders with one piece cable each.

Just an update FYI.

As my servos have 9 core and on the Z - 11 core encoder cables it was quite difficult to find proper drag chain cable. It was >3 euro/m for not shielded and 6-8 euro /m for shielded. Or more.

Ok. Long story short, best bang for the buck is the Helucable (http://www.helukabel.com/en/products/industrial-cables-wires/cables-for-drag-chains/data-cables-for-drag-chains/data-cables-for-drag-chains-overview.html). Forget about ÖLFLEX or LappKabel , 5 times the price.


Here is what i am buying right now, the 12 core one, for less than 2 euro per meter:

Here is the shielded cable for the proximity sensors:

Hope that helps sb in the future
