Hot end cable needs to be shielded?

Hot end cable needs to be shielded?

I am extending my Huxley with a dual extruder kit.
At the time there was no cable available for the hot end/ resistor to the electronics board.

I see some cables online, but I am wondering if it needs to be shielded (like the original is)?

If you are referring to the RepRapPro Huxley Duo kit, they only used shielded cables to make it possible to claim CE approval for an assembled printer.

That is the one indeed.
So I will look for an basic (unshielded) cable then.

Thanks a lot for the quick response.
