Re: [uCsimm] HV capacitors on the LAN transformer

Transients of hundreds of volts also occur in category 5 cables due to
triboelectric effects and static buildup. It's a big problem in the networks
in large buildings with thousands of meters of wiring. The caps really
should be there for noise immunity, and they really do need to be high
voltage if you are running more than a few meters of cable.
