I'm looking to replace the troublesome ribbon cable of my Duplicator 6 with a 2xCAT6 arrangement for all things extruder.
Are 4 26AWG wires (2 sets of 2 twisted pairs) enough copper for 50W heater at 24 volts?
Are 2 26AWG wires (1 set of 2 twisted pair) enough copper for the ground connection of the heater?
Can I consolidate ground connections of the low power fans/sensors to free up more wires?
Is it okay if I have some pins be 24 volt like for the heater and others be 12 volt for the fans?
Should I get a lower gauge CAT6 cable like 24 AWG? 23 AWG seems to exist too.
