Connection cable

The best suitable cable for connection between all CAN-GCx modules is CAT-5 cable, mostly known as CAT-5 Patchkabel cable.
Almost any computershop or DIY Market sells this cable for pretty low prices. (e.g. Reichelt 4X2 AWG26/7-10) www.reichelt.de_bilder_web_artikel_e910_cat5patk.jpg
