does the new V5 use RJ11 or RJ12 cable and can I make our own cables. Does VEX sell the cable and connectors and crimping/stripping tools?
It is custom RJ11. We will sell the connectors & crimping tool.
Also please note the V5 Smart Cables and connectors are not identical to standard RJ11 cables. To support the features of V5 Smart Motors and sensors, the cables see a higher current load than off-the-shelf cables would normally experience, and have been modified to handle this load safely and consistently. Off-the-shelf cables may not perform as expected and could pose a potential safety hazard, and are therefore not recommended.
