How far can you remote mount the remote HMI or VW3A1101 keypad?

Issue:
How far can you remote mount the remote HMI or VW3A1101 keypad?

Product Line:
Altivar ATV61 and ATV71 with a VW3A1102 remote mounting kit.

Environment:
All

Cause:
Needs to remote mount the VW3A1101 HMI keypad 100 feet.

Resolution:
We only offer a remote cable up to 10 meters.  If you want to try running a longer cable you can try using a standard CAT 5 type cable to connect between the remote HMI and the Drive.
Please keep in mind we can not recommend that the HMI will work with any cable above 10 meters.  Some OEMs have ran cables up to 200 feet however they had to add an external power supply to compensate the long cable length ( See the attachment for OEM example of 200 ft cable run).
We offer 4 cable options
1 meter VW3A1104R10
3 meter VW3A1104R30
5 meter VW3A1104R50
10 meter VW3A1104R100
