Re: Electrical Noise on CAN BUS

The short answer is maybe. It is bad practice to put communication wiring next to power wiring. Especially something with rapidly fluctuating voltages like PWM motor controllers. (Talons are PWM output) Worst case is to loop wiring and lay it parallel to the power wires. General recommendation is to cross power wiring at 90 degrees ant to keep as much separation as possible. Of course if you follows all the rules for digital data busses, then is practically impossible to connect them to the equipment they are supposed to control.
