I have some I2C sensors I am wanting to hook up. I would like to run it a little long, maybe 30', maybe 50' max. Right now, I am using cat 5 cable. It is kinda stiff, kinda prone to breaking on the ends if you bend it sharp.
What is a good alternative to cat 5 for sensor wire? I am not sure what the gauge of jumper wires for solderless breadboards are, but that looks like the perfect size for sensor wire. I am not familiar with that sort of thing, but can you buy longer lengths of that stuff with the 3 conductor female ends already crimped on? I bought some jst connectors from ebay to connect up some flow meters and I apparently got the size wrong. HAHA, they were super small, but they did work well for plugging in a hall effect sensor.
So, I was curious, what is a good size of wire for some I2C sensors? Can I get it in longer lengths with the small female 3 conductor headers crimped on? Where is a good supplier?
Anyone have any suggestions for something like this? I looked at a few robot suppliers, but I figured that I would ask around here first.
