I am working on a job where the electrical contractor pulled unshielded, twisted pair Cat 5 cable for RS485 communications. I know RS485 is usually run in shielded twisted pair, and I am wondering if this will work. The runs are all in dedicated metal conduit, which I think would function as a shield. Some of the runs are long, ~400' Thanks, John
