Where to buy cable.

Recommended Posts

Hello.  

 

Please excuse if this has been covered or in the wrong section.

 

I am wanting to buy 100m rolls of the type of electrical cable used on the Link pre-wired ECU plugs. I am an auto electrician and I do vehicle re-wires and want a good source for that type of wire to purchase in bulk.  Most of the cable available through the auto electrical wholesales i deal with are "auto" cable.  Which is very thick and bulky, and doesnt come in thinner sizings.  And is far from ideal.

I would like to know the brand and series of cable that link uses, as it looks right for what i need.  And a place to buy decent quantity.  Eg digikey, rs online, mouser or similar probably have it, but i would like to know which type it is as there is so many to choose from.  Or if anyone knows similar/better cable for purpose.

Thanks in advance.

Our looms are made from "AVSS", it is a Japanese standard thin wall automotive wire.  Most wires are 0.56mm2 cross-sectional area.  It is a little hard to find in small qty's.  American "TXL" is easier to find, slightly thicker insulation but not too bad.

Depending on the location you're intending to use the cable, PLC Hookup wire (0.22mm2) may also be worth considering, especially for the expansion port plugs and short runs inside the cabin.
