Hello,

I have a few air-cooled argon lasers I play with, but I need to jump some pins for them to lose.

I was thinking of building a remote interface by reverse engineering the pinouts, and I’ve got a shopping cart full of wire, TE AMP CPC connectors, MultiMate sockets,

BUT,, I have no idea where to get the umbilical cords that usually harness the whole shebang.

I don’t even know what to google, it all leads to neonatal care and scuba diving applications.

Does anyone know a source for the umbilical sheathing used for these connectors?

What kind are we talking? Is it the mesh type you're looking for? Kinda looks like those cheap Chinese finger traps? Last connector I done up just had slices of heatshrink tubing at intervals along its length.

My current system has heatshrink for a foot or so at either end of the umbilical and then mesh covering inbetween.

I’m looking for something similar to what OEM air cooled argon laser vendors use.


Woven w/ PVC impregnated? Not Sure



Has a click/adhesive lock system apparently.



This one just look like plain ol’ PVC.




Oh by the way, the PSU I was looking for way back here, I finally found it, but the tube’s almost dead. :( low out put and purple light showing through the tube.
