Can fire alarm wire be run parallel with coaxial or(TV) cable. since it is low voltage?
In addition the fire alarm cable is shielded.
Yes. needs to be power limited fire alarm cable though.
620.36 Different Systems in One Raceway or Traveling
Cable. Optical ﬁber cables and conductors for operating
devices, operation and motion control, power, signaling,
ﬁre alarm, lighting, heating, and air-conditioning circuits of
1000 volts or less shall be permitted to be run in the same
traveling cable or raceway system if all conductors are in-
sulated for the maximum voltage applied to any conductor
within the cables or raceway system and if all live parts of
the equipment are insulated from ground for this maximum
voltage. Such a traveling cable or raceway shall also be
permitted to include shielded conductors and/or one or
more coaxial cables if such conductors are insulated for the
maximum voltage applied to any conductor within the
cable or raceway system. Conductors shall be permitted to
be covered with suitable shielding for telephone, audio,
video, or higher frequency communications circuits.
also, 760.139 allows network cables (cat5e and the like) to be installed with FA cable too.
It is, Thanks.
