    Long Power Cable

    I'm trying to find a long C8/Figure 8 power cable, but can only find 1.8m ones - can anyone recommend good cabling suppliers before I resort to asking our maintenance team to make me one...

    I can recommend Lindy. They create/supply lots of cables and long cables too.

    How about your LEA? We needed a 5m+ cable and our County IT Support Team got us one for next day.

    CPC do a 3m CLICKY, I'm fairly sure I've bought 5m from them but can't see them at the moment.

    That 3m one is the longest I can find anywhere - I'll go and measure up and see if that will do; if not I'll go and speak nicely to our site team :-)

    I like your thinking! It wouldn't help in this instance though, as I'm trying to power something in the middle of the room, so it is more the distance from the wall that is the issue here.
