Hi, i am hoping that someone has pretty good cable experience and can help me with the problem I'm having. Here is the situation, i have a panel PC connected to a inspection camera (which is network-able) via a cross over cable. The cable is ran from inside a machine panel into a gutter (with a good amount of cables in it) and on the top of the machine and finally into the camera. Now just from the sounds of this i think this is an interference. But the thing is it takes hours for it to drop the connection. Now the questions, How close to other electrical cables can this cable be? are networking cables super sensetive? What is my best bet to protect the cable from this (adding magnetic cores? better cable?). The cable it self is just a plain network cable that i made. What can i do?
