 How Deep ?
I have a beachfront project which needs to connect the old office to the new office with a distance of 600 meters. my plan is to use a 1 run Filled Foam Skin Alpeth Cable 100 pairs - 600 meters using a PE Pipe 2" for burial installation.

my question would be how deep would digging.?
is the PE pipe enough for the insulation?

the purpose of the 100 pairs alpeth cable is to extend the pabx local lines to the new office.

please help.

Thanks and More Power !!

Dear Franz,

Sorry to tell you but you most likely have local codes that govern this and you should contact the AHJ (Authority Having Jurisdiction) to get the correct information. Your electrical contractor should be able to point you in the right direction.
