    Default Need advise from Experts


    Dear Friends,
    I would like to make or purchase a lengthy RS 232 cable of around 10-15 Meters. One of my friend he expressed his doubt about the length and data transfer. He told the data(signal) may not reach upto the end point in some occassions.
    Anyone has experienced with a lengthy cable?
    Please advise me.
    thanks in advance

    10 M is much much more ,,your doubts are 100% correct.If the wire quality is extra good then it is possible to communicate data otherwise not possible

    yes, max 30 feet or 10 meteres, more length is not guaranteed, but you can give it a try, may work if your cable quality is realy good and no other obstacles.

    Boknaaai is right. RS232 cables can run into longer lengths without any problems. If the environment is noisy (electrically), then it is recommended to use a shielded cable. Otherwise, a normal cable is enough. I have used 50 mts. length of cables in industrial environment without any problems.

    Thanks all
    Finally I got it. Now my cable length is 18Ms.
    It is working well. It is a good quality shielded cable by Alcatel.
