    What is the maximum length for the remote display cable used by the PM8000 meter?

    A user wants to know the maximum length of the display cable they can use with the PM8244 meter.

    Product Line
    PM8000 series meters

    Intermediate Metering

    Remote display communicates over an Ethernet custom port using the following:

    Cable type: CAT5/5e UTP (use unshielded cable only)

    Cable length: 100 m (330 ft) maximum

    Connection type: direct, point-to-point
    The PM8000 remote display is powered over Ethernet and it uses maximum 3 W (and 48 V) of power.​

    The PM8000 remote display meets the IEEE 802.3 as a class 2 PoE, Mode A.

    For an extended length, it is recommended to use either a Power over Ethernet injector or a Power over Ethernet switch. In case you decide to use a PoE switch, you will be required to set port forwarding rules for the communication port used by the remote display and the PM8000 base meter.
