It has been mentioned in other post of multi conductor shielded cat 5 cable being used for longer cable runs. Inquiring if others have used with success.

The CAT-5 cable has four twisted shielded wire pairs that are excellent for transmitting low voltage analog signals. I have a lot of cables that I have used up to about 500-ft. Here are a couple of references:

one acceleromter for each color-pair? why is the mixed specification on ethernet?

One accelerometer per twisted wire pair, so up to 4-accelerometers per CAT-5 cable. You could also do 3-accelerometers and one tachometer. I made continuity checks with multi-meter when making my BNC adapter boxes for each end of the CAT-5 cable. Accelerometers and similar sensors provide low voltage analog signals, so most CAT-5 specifications/flavors are not relevant. Some cables and connectors are more rugged than others, if that is an issue.
