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

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


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

Calculations beyond the 10 meters have not been tested, therefore we do not have a max length beyond that.
User 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 meters to suppress noise.
