ATA-187 - RJ-11 cable distance limitations

Level 5
Level 5

I'm looking to determine how far an analog device could be from the controlling ATA-187. We're displacing an NEC phone system, and there is the need for a couple phones in a remote warehouse that is not currently cabled to the primary building w/ Ethernet-grade cabling (there is only copper to support the existing two NEC phones in the warehouse). Running new cable or implementing a wireless IP phone solution is not an option for the warehouse.

So, I'm looking at the ATA, which would be located in the primary building, with a couple new analog phones approximately 200' away in the warehouse. I need to know if this is going to be a problem, and if someone can tell me what the distance limitations would be for these connections.  I couldn't find anything in the ATA datasheet or administration guide.

Thank you
