AC power cable extension
on Oct 19, 2010 at 11:22:29 pm

Silly question but one that I want to make sure I get right. In a new suite I have a need (for cable management purposes) to run ac to the 2460 in that suite longer than the supplied cable. What is the correct power cable to be using for the monitor?

Hi Robbie,

Any IEC-320-C13 to NEMA 5-15P cable will work and you can find these in just about any length you would like. This is the technical name for what most people recognize as a standard PC power cable.

You can also use a variety of extension cables, but if you have to buy something anyway for this suite you can easily find the cable you need in the length you need for around the same price as most extension cables.

If you need any more information let us know.

as always thanks walter. Great link

Bram - what gauge would you use for say a 12 foot run, 20 foot run or even a 30 foot run?

Hi Robbie,

Just about anything you will find at any of those lengths will be more than sufficient. For example, Walter's link has a 25ft cable at a good price that is 14 Gauge and that is overkill by a long shot. The monitor only draws about 50 Watts so you will be hard pressed to find an extended length PC power cable that would not be good enough for this application.
