4 meter motor controller data extension

This is a 4 meter extension cable (14 ft) for serial data connection of the autopilot allowing the autopilot computer and controller to be mounted further apart.

Depending on the configuration, it may be desirable to mount the motor controller further from the autopilot computer.

The magnetic sensors inside the autopilot should be mounted away from magnets, compasses, high current wires etc, but the motor controller doesn't care. The autopilot computer also migh be in a better location to view the screen and use the remote control. It may be easier to locate the controller in a different location to reach the power wires, and reduce length of rudder feedback wires, or end of travel switches.
