SE cable next to coaxial cable


Hi,

Based on advice received in another post...thanks... I am adding a sub panel...

My question: I will be running my new SE cable along side of my Verizon Fios coaxial cable and I would like to know that I will not be causing any interference with the FIOS... guess I could ask verizon too... but thanks if you know the answer.

Sincerely,

Rob

It shouldn't cause any problems if it is a good quality coax cable like RG-6.

I like to run all my low voltage cables away from electric lines whenever possible though.

Are you sure it is coax and not fiber optic cable? That is what is Verizon's claim to fame with FIOS. If it were optical, there would be no effect on it at all.

If it is optical there is no possible way to interfere unless your utility knife finds a way across it.

Hi,

Thanks for the replies. It is RG-6 coax in the house... I can't speak to what Verizon uses outside...maybe that is the fiber optic. At any rate not alot of options, the best route through my finished basement is inside the box-out for the the center I-beam and ducting trunk. I could try to seperate them on both sides of the beam or somethin... but I am hoping not to have to worry about it.

Ciao,

Rob

My rule of thumb is to not worry too much about electrical running next to network.

Assuming the coax is properly terminated and installed right then there's very little bad that can happen.

Just don't crush the coax with a staple.

If you run through an air duct it all needs to be plenum rated cable, not PVC insulation.

thanks... and sorry, I meant I am running the cable next to the duct, alongside the I-beam, in the boxed out ceiling.
