    Hi
    I have purchased a 1.5 kW Chinese spindle and need cable from inverter to spindle.
    It seems from what I have read, a sutable cable to use would be; Alpha Wire 4 Core Screened 14AWG?

    Does any one know where I can obtain aprox 2 meters length of this cable, in the UK? (As I do not wish to purchase a whole drum.

    No you don't need anything that heavy 1.5mm/2 or even 1mm/2 CY cable will work fine. Also while there will be 4 pins on the connector only 3 or them are actually used so you only need 3 core.
    Often poeple use 4 core because it's the same cable they would use for the steppers. Or they want to add there own a Ground for the spindle, personaly I don't find a need.

    I can suggest a supplier that will sell by the meter but they will want more for carriage than the cable so probably not worth it really. You'll be better going to Maplins or local electrical supplier and asking for CY cable.
