 HV EMI on phone cables
Thanks for your answer Joe. We are installing 5KV cable on same tray as phone cable. I would like to know recommended separation, we have the safety requirements, but my concern is actually with EMI on the phone cable. It is a CAT 5, shielded twisted pair.

Dear Agustin,

The recommended separation is 12" for this scenario.
