Second Shooter Cat5 Cable Special?

I tried a plain 8' Cat5 cable on my second shooter, and it gave me a fault message. Works fine with the Kessler supplied cable.

Does it need to be a cross-over cable?

Hi Art,

The CAT5 cable needs to have 8 twisted pairs of wires and unfortunately is limited to a 6ft length between the controller and the motors. Our engineers have confirmed that with longer runs of CAT5 cables the nature of cable can introduce "noise" in the line that will result in tracking faults.

I bought some 8' Cat6a cables and they seem to work fine :) Just adding that in.
