    Network Cable Interference

    Can we place 18 awg cables carrying 24VAC power in the same conduit as Category 5 network cables?

    Will that create significant EMI? The run is 150 feet. Thanks.

    If the 18 AWG you speak of has a class 1 power supply then by code you cannot run CAT 5 or 6 cable in the same conduit. Class 2 or 3 OK.

    In any event it is not wise to run Cat 5 0r 6 closely grouped with any conductors (like conduit) including Cat 5 or 6. For best performance they sould be seperated.
