What is the maximum length for remote display cable to use with PM5000?

Issue
A user may want to know the maximum length of the display cable they can use with the PM5563 meter

Product Line
PM5000 series meters
PM5563RD
METSEPM5RD



Environment
Metering

Resolution
Maximum cable length is 10 meters (30 ft) to maintain IEC certification.

Developers have not done any calculations beyond the 10m's therefore we do not have a max length beyond that.
Customer can try longer lengths until the display does not work and then back off some.
Also they may have to use ferrite beads beyond the 10 m's to suppress noise.
