CAN bus extension for MX9's used outdoors
Are there any suggestions for the the best cable to use when running the CAN bus outside (and burying the cable)?  Is direct burial rated Cat5e suitable?
And then, what is best to drop the short jumpers from the continous bus to feed the MX9's RJ12 plug?  Is there such a thing as a CAT5e 3 wire splice (x8) in a weatherproof box?
Thanks in advance for any and all replies!
