I am trying to find out what the requirements are on dielectric strength and isolation between the conductors in a Gigabit Ethernet transmission line.
A first place to look would of course be the TIA-568 standard, but I can't afford to buy it.
Second place to look would be in a manufacturers datasheet for a Cat5e cable like this one, which specifies the following:
Dielectric strength conductor-conductor and conductor-screen (2 seconds) : 2.5 kV DC
That's what I'm looking for, but the problem with this is that the manufacturer might have taken some headroom over the minimum value allowed by any possible standard. So that's a dead end, as I see it.
Are there requirements on this property in any standard? If so, which one and where to find it?
Thanks in advance!
