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?

@BradTipper
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.
