I am not sure, I'd guess 10'. I just took a look, but didn't measure it. Of course if Tim sees this he'd know for sure. If that isn't long enough for your environment you can certainly buy it by the foot a a gazillon places.

Just remember if you go much longer then the factory you want to go with bigger gauge wire to cut down on voltage/current loss from resistance in the longer wire.
You can google the wire size loss's and see charts for the length of wire size voltage and current draw or there is a cool Android APP called "ElectroDroid" that has all kinds of very useful info and a lot of calculators for all kinds of Electronic design and info if you have a android device.

Wow, Electrodroid, thanks! When I made my order, as the 6000 was still a year out in preproduction, I ordered a 1500 and Astron PS large enough to handle the 6000. So when the 6000 arrived I had to cut off those gold (or brass) connectors, tin the resulting leads and I had to work to get their diameter down such that they would even fit in the Astron 25.
