I am wondering what the heat rating is on standard CAT5 cabling or where I can check the heat rating of my cabling by using the information inscribed on the cabling?
In my specific situation, I am trying to decide if the length of CAT5 I have sitting around can be run along and be fixed to the feed line of a old cast-iron radiator (hot water from the boiler would be traveling in that pipe, since the radiator is still in use). I am running this CAT5 because I want a dedicated 100Mbps connection via cable versus the Wi-Fi signal I am using now. If any sort of impedance would result from having the cable subjected to heat from the pipes, that would be an important thing to know as well.
Hopefully some wise sysadmins or hardware folk know the details of this sort of situation and can advise me on the best way to proceed.
