Can we do this?
The low voltage wires for 0-10V dimmer controls end up in the same enclosure as the power conductors at the dimmer and at the light fixture. I don't see any reason they can't be in the same conduit.
Any comments appreciated.

I think the rule is that all conductors must have insulation rated for the highest voltage.

First, from stateside, what do the installation instructions require??

Second as twh said, down here the insulation must be all rated at the highest available voltage in the conduit/enclosures.

These will be Sensorswitch nLight dimmers packs which I have never worked with.
I was curious of the code implications, but I'm thinking a shielded cable of some sort should work as long as it has the proper voltage rating.
Guess as a last resort I can read the instructions.
I have a #14 MC cable in place as a backup just in case there is an issue but still, running in the same conduit would be easier.
