Does anyone knows the cable specifications (#gauge, temp, etc) for the 2-wire connection between the LXi gas heater (remote pool-COM) and the Aqualink RS controller board (green block terminals 1-2)? In the manual only mention the wire specs for a RS485 connection and that is a 4-wire #22 gauge. In another model heater mention a 2-wire #14 gauge cable but that seems big for just a relay switch connection that will not have more than 24 v /200 mA on it.

Welcome to TFP.

Any 2 wire cable from #22 wire used in Cat5 cable on up will do.
