Use of Ethernet cable for 100m power and RS485 transmission is OK? Answered
I want to use Ethernet CAT 5e cable for Power transmission and RS485 transmission.
But I am not sure this suits to my application or not.
I have 5 different load which requires 20mA normally and 1A instantaneous current.
I need to transmit 5V via Ethernet Cable as load accepts 5V. If not possible to transmit then I may use 12V.
Distance I need is 100meter. Ethernet Cable is ok for RS485 transmission over this range with 5v/12v power?
CAT 5e seems better solution for this case or not?
