Is this cable suitable for XController/NEMA23?

I’ve got an X-controller to run a workbee frame with NEMA23 steppers. Trying to track down some decent cable to run to them- how does this look?

18AWG, foil shield… am I missing anything? Cable selection seems to be a little limited here in NZ unfortunately, but this sounds like the right stuff?

18AWG shielded should be just fine. Connect the shield to DC ground on the controller side only.

Thanks, will do! Much appreciated.

I always use 16 gauge wire, but 18 should be OK.
