    up to the length of a normal cabin, at about 3m, it shuldn't be a problem.

    no, it is with any wire.

    why do you think you have to run 0/1 for high power applications?

    EVERY element has resistance. Wire itself can be a resistance. For IT, this issue is crucial and therefore use devices that amplify the signals after a certain distance.
