The ATV312 shows that an output filter or choke is required for any cable distance between the drive and motor exceeding 164 feet (50 meters). Above 164 feet, there is a change with shielded vs non-shielded.
From 164 feet to 330 feet (100 meters) you can use the LR filter cell or a motor choke.
From 164 feet to 660 feet (200 meters) you can use the LR filter cell or a motor choke.
