I assume that any and ALL electric circuits within a gasoline fuel dispenser must comply with the use of explosion proof boxes, sealing compound, conduit seals etc. Per Article 514. Data lines within the dispenser are being used for fuel management. I'm aware that would be considered a class 2 wiring method. Am I correct in thinking it should be treated the same as the 120 volt circuits within the fuel dispenser.

I think I may of found the answer. I just looked through my 2002 NFPA Code Handbook. The following is what I copied / paste: <b>514.9 Sealing. (A) At Dispenser. A listed seal shall be provided in each conduit run entering or leaving a dispenser or any cavities or enclosures in direct communication therewith. The sealing fitting shall be the first fitting after the conduit emerges from the earth or concrete.</b>
Voltage isn't mentioned, just EACH conduit.

What kind of equipment are you installing that takes a Cat 5 Cable?.Never seen that at the pump or dispenser. Can you find it gas and oil resistant? All wiring, speaker and even most monitering which is intrinscally safe most be in rigid and sealed.
