I am currently doing a custom CNC machine that I am building and I have a large cabinet for the cnc controller and the pc that is running the machine. I do have a question since I will be running anywhere from 1000-1500 feet of cable I am leaning towards paracord over the MPDC because of cost.
Now my question is geared more to the saftey aspect. As I am guessing that MPDC is made of PET and the Paracord is made of Nylon and neither is fire retardent. Is the worry about either not holding up to the heat and starting a fire? Might seam like a dumb question but I have $6000 into the electrical side itself and another $4000 in the mechanical so I am a little leary on which one is better and safer.
Wouldn't you want something that resists to oil and coolant too ? Every time I've worked with or around manual or CNC machines, the floor would always get greasy or some coolant would start leaking on my foot.
