Transformer and power cable interference to servers

Last Modified: 2016-01-18
What is the minimum recommended distance between Transformers or 600 volts power cables should servers be installed?

We need to move our backup appliance and one option is inside our electrical room.    I know you should keep data and power cords apart but what about transformers and big 600v power cables?

Thank you for any insight you can offer.
