1.35m long extension cable suitable for actuators with 2-channel (quadrature) encoders. 2 thicker internal wires (~1mm2 or 17AWG conductive area each) are intended to carry DC motor/actuator current while 4 thinner wires are for carrying encoder power and signal lines.
Each extension lead has a Male 6-pin latching connector at one end and a Female connector at the other end. They are 1.35m long end-to-end. Please find more information and lead colour to pin position references below.
The connectors at each end have a 4.2mm pitch and match the profile of 'Molex Mini-Fit Jr' connectors. They have a latching arm (on the male connector) and a small hook (on the female connector).
Each black-insulated cable contains:
2 cores Brown and Blue for carrying motor current, ~1mm2 17AWG conductive area each. Up to 10A maximum on these wires at 20% duty cycle (maximum 2 minutes continuous).
4 cores Yellow, Orange, Red, Black for low current encoder power & signals, ~0.14mm2 26AWG conductive area each. Up to 0.5A continuous on these wires.
Please see a pin position diagram below (note that some similar cables have White cores in place of Orange ones).
