I am designing a machine and trying to make it look aesthetically pleasing.
Could I use off the shelf USB Type-C to Type-C cables to handle both power deliver and encoder data to/from a motor?
The DC motor is about 80W (@24 V) and uses 2 leads for power and 8 for the encoder. Could I technically use just one USB type cable to achieve this? I would not use the type-c connector, just the cable. The encoder has differential wires so hoping interference would not be an issue.
I understand that passive type-c cables are rated for only 3A but is that limitation due to the cable or the connectors and electronics in them?
