I am trying to shield the cabling on my CNC mill. The motors, unfortunately, do not have connectors but instead have wire leads coming out from the motor housing. I can cut those wires about an inch from the motor and directly solder to the shielded wire, but will this 1" or so of exposed wiring defeat the purpose of shielding the cable? Unfortunately with the length of the cable I can't really slide the shielded housing up over the exposed wires without damaging the cable.
The primary goal is to reduce electrical noise which is causing false reports by limit switches (which is being addressed with an optoisolator / capacitor combo).
