Proper short Patch Cable for DL32 to DL16.

Contributor - Level 2
Hi,
I want to daisy chain a DL32 with a DL16 to have them run off a single AES 50 port on my M32r.
Can someone share a link to a good 6 foot cable with ethercon connectors that are known to work for this application. I know this cable is what I should use to go from the board to the DL32

So I am looking for something like this but would like some recommendations on cables that people have used and are dependable for the daisy chaining of the two stage boxes.

Also what is a good cable to use for a long run connection from the M32r ethernet port for remote control to laptop. Is any shielded cat 5e cable good for that?

Thanks!

Unfortunately according to the description "Ground lifted at one end to prevent unwanted noise and hum", it could possibly give you grief. There needs to be continuity of the ground (drain) wire from ethercon to ethercon shells.

I use standard cat5e or cat6 unshielded and not had any problems.
