Need help with component selection
requires 2 shielded twisted pair + 4 more wires. This combination is not available in a single cable as standard.
I just had a more careful look at the cable I have, and found that it is LAPP 6XF8008-00277131
So has 3 of 2x0.14 individually screened twisted pairs, + 4 x 0.1 + 2 x 0.5 cables.
There is a list here:
Have a look on eBay, there are often remnants available by the metre.
And before I forget, thanks for all advice so far.

You could put them on ThingyVerse (though that is owned by Autodesk now, so might not be OS enough for purists)
