Do wires from track to current sensor have to be twisted

SC
 

I am installing dr4088ln current sensors from digikeijs, the + wires run to the sensor, the common returns back to control. so wires dont necessarily end up in pairs and certainly not twisted,
Q. Do wires from track to current sensor have to be twisted as they are for main bus? if not, as i cant see how they could be, can they be further separated from the return or - negative wire...

the wires from the detectors to the track should not be twisted. Twisted wires can induce a slight current in the wires, which may trip the detectors, giving you false occupancy.
