Information for Building Your Own CAN Cables: 

According to ISO 11898, you should use a bus cable with a characteristic impedance of 120 Ω. For best results, we recommend CAT5e cable. The usable cable length depends on the transmission rate. The following measured values can be taken as a guide, but they should not be interpreted as limits. Construction details can be found in the AKD/S700 Accessories Manual
