    Cathode Wire

    Looking for a source or a specification for the cathode (negative?) wire which runs from the laser tube to the power supply. Insulation seems thicker than "typical" 300V wire but not as robust as the red wire. Can this side of the laser just use regular wiring?

    I am running a 100W RECI W4 with a HY-DY13 power supply.

    Is here no markings on the cable ?

    could it be like this Black Tri-rated Cable, 0.5 mm² CSA, 1 kV dc, 600 V ac

    Thank you, Man I feel dumb as this is so obvious. I should wear my glasses more often and maybe I would see that the smudges on the wire are actual specifications...
