The Triple Twisted Snake
TNT TTS DIY Mains Cable
Full details of these easy to build (no soldering!) cables are at
Cable originally specified was Pirelli Screenflex S2 featuring the double shield (aluminium foil + copper braid) and two 1.5 sq.mm stranded copper conductors. People found it difficult to obtain this so Baldassari cable a single shield only was later recommended. But this cable is also not available now.
Now there is a cable that is better than both! It is perfect for making TNT TTS, and you will have a cable that is cheaper and can outperform The Reference Powercord from RA.
Two 12-gauge conductors, Teflon dielectric and jacket with double foil plus braid shield.
Three of these are braided together for the TTS.
Number of Conductors: 2
AWG: 12. Stranding: 7x20, Conductor Material: TC (Tinned Copper)
Insulation Material : Teflon® (FEP - Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene)
Outer Shield Material : Aluminum Foil-Polyester Tape/TC & Tinned Copper (Beldfoil®)
Outer Shield Coverage: 100%
Outer Jacket Material : Teflon® (Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene)
300Volt, 25 Amp
Overall Nominal Diameter: 0.303 inch (7.69mm)
TTS use Kimber style weaving similar to the Reference PowerKord by Russ Andrews; priced at £174 for 1.8 meters. TTS made with Belden 83802 you also get two levels of Teflon insulation, double foil screening and much thicker cores. So it is a worthwhile project.
