Just finished a mother-in-law apartment and I am installing a sub-panel in the apartment. I am running a:

10/3 for power
door bell wire
Alarm wire to put the apartment on the house security (brinks)
and a mini8 Coaxial for Satelite TV

Can I run all these lines together in one conduit? Or do they need to be seperated?

Thanks in Advance,

No, you cannot put them in the same conduit. You need to separate the line-voltage stuff from the low-voltage stuff. This is required by the electrical code for safety, and is recommended to minimize interference (although interference with the things you mention would be very unlikely).

10/3 won't give you much power (7.2KW), but it might be enough if the apartment is small and has no 240-volt equipment.

Thanks John I figured it needed to be seperated just wanted to make sure. I plan on running the 10/3 outside and the other 3 wires inside the conduitI have to nake about a 30 foot run, and the apartment is basically a bedroom and a bathroom. with a 110 window a/c.

Thanks again,
