One last note, I generally find that 2x2 bin works better than 1x1. I does not hang so often.
Also try to keep the exposure >=1s like you said. I use 1s and works fine. Less than 1s is too fast if you are using it with client-server topology.
RPi USB can't cope with that.

Mine was attached with a custom built PVC tubing adapter and works fine. But I have seen CNC adapters specially built for this purpose.
Something like this:

Finally got time to test the T7M. I made a adapter myself for the finderscope to test it.
I directly noticed the calibration process didn't run smoothly what PHD recognized see attachments.
Now I will make anothe cable as well to test the pinlayout for the T7M as posted earlier here.

Thanks for your report. It seems you have the same problem but on the RA Axis. Mine is on DEC (North). I am starting to think this cheap cameras all have problems with the ST4 port :-( More reports on this camera would be useful. Please post your results with new cables. I have extensively debug my camera but to no results. At least it works fine with pulse guiding!

One other thing, before making new cables, try to guide it manually with camera relays (ST4) with PHD, with a large pulse to see if all 4 axis works. NORTH direction fails on mine. That will give confirmation.

Regards.
