What Is The Maximum Power That Can Pass Safely On Cat5e?

Hi

What is the maximum amperage one can pass safely ( meaning no cable overheating ) on a 200 feet Cat 5e span? Not necessarily PoE (not excluding the use of a.High Power PoE Injector /Splitter pair either) which seems to allow up to 60 watts on 2 pairs ... We would like to use the Cable as a regular DC transport cable . We need 100 watts @ 48 Volts about 2.5 amps ... We don't plan to use RJ45 if the cable is used as a regular DC cable carrying Positive and Negative on two pairs each ....

Thanks in advance
