Answer . \n100m max DO NOT surpass this at all cost. We could all die.
Answer: S-Video Maximum Length . There are a lot of issues that can develop when running long lengths of cable. A safe length for S-Video is 150ft. This length is subject to signal strength from the source unit and being run in an area that is relatively free from interference. If you need t…o increase this length, you can use a device called an S-Video Balun. The S-Video Balun is a stand alone device that transforms a single S-Video channel to and from CAT-5 twisted pair cabling. CAT-5 cable is much cheaper than S-Video and can be run up to a maximum of 500 ft. (MORE)
As per the A+ Guide to Hardware: pg. 395 The maximum cable length for a serial cable according to RS-232 standards is 50 feet.
There is no published maximum lengths for composite or other analog video cables because there are so many factors to take into account.. If the driving source is a properly balanced output and the receiver has a properly terminated input and good quality, low loss co-ax cable is used, then the max…imum distance can comfortably exceed 100 metres (300ft). However, many domestic video components do not have the best drivers and receivers and therefore, the maximum length will be reduced significantly. With analog signals (composite, S-video, component, RGB) the picture will start to become softer as the cable length increases. Eventually, the image will become unacceptable but it is up to the user to decide what is good enough.. In all cases where a long video run is needed, use good quality 75 ohm co-ax cable and within a domestic environment, you should see very few problems. (MORE)
Information deterioration only begins on a noticable level after the first 100 ft or so. There are two factors that greatly affect the image quality. One is the VGA driver - the display card. Many are designed to drive only short distances and do not perform well above 10 to 20 feet. The other is… the cable itself. VGA is a high resolution video signal and demands a properly designed cable to carry it over a long distance. Many short VGA cables do not comply with the transmission standards for long distances. They work over a length of 5 feet or so but for long distance transmission, 75 ohm co-ax cable is needed for each of the red, green and blue signals. Given a proper video driver in the display card, several hundred feet is possible if the right grade of video cable is used to carry the signal. This type of cable is not a standard product in most cases, so it will need to be made to order. Standard cables over 100 feet are rare. (MORE)
The figure often quoted for maxmum length of a DVI cable is around 40 feet.. However, the real distance is dependant on both the quality of cable and the quality of the signal source and the signal receiver. All three are important. Poor quality components can reduce the maximum length to as little… as 10 - 15 feet. On the other hand, using low loss cable with good quality drivers and receivers can extend the distance significantly further. As no manufacturer of cable, DVI drivers or DVI receivers is willing to quote guaranteed figures, it's really a matter of trial and error.. Personally, I have used a 70 feet cable length with DVI signals and had no problems. I might add that I used a very low loss cable for the job - and they don't come cheap. (MORE)
Hi-Speed USB cables can be up to 5 meters (16 feet, 5 inches). Some people sell USB extension cables, but these are outside the USB specification. The electrical characteristics of the cable are important. Chaining them adds too much delay, resistance and capacitance. You might get lucky, or you …might not. (MORE)
The USB specification limits the length of a USB cable to 5 metersor 16 feet 5 inches for high speed devices. For low speed devicesthe limit is 3 meters or 9 feet 10 inches.
Depends entirely on your application. Use as a jump rope would be different than if being used for a computer connection.
The current maximum length for a serial cable is around 50 meters.Different cables have length limits with the maximum varying.
It depends on the interface used.. VGA - up to about 15 feet with almost any VGA cable. 100 feet or more is possible if high quality co-ax cable is used but the limit depends on the resolution used.. DVI - up to 50 feet or so. Longer runs need larger and more expensive cables but as cables are sup…plied complete, any cable can be expected to work at the length supplied.. HDMI - although the same signal as DVI, HDMI cables are supplied in longer lengths than DVI. 75 - 80 feet is possible but the cables are expensive at longer lengths. DVI-HDMI adaptors are available if the PD only has DVI outputs. (MORE)
USB cables for original USB can be up to 3 meters (9 feet, 10 inches) and hi speed USB cables can be up to 5 meters (16 feet, 5 inches). (reference p 404 guide to managing & maintaining your PC)
Standard definition component can run over relatively long distances. The maximum length is dependant on the cable, the source driver and the receiver. Using 75R co-ax cable, 100ft or more should present no problems at all. If the length is significantly more than 100 feet, it will be wise to choose… a low loss cable (for low loss, read "more expensive"). With low loss cable, anything up to 500 feet is possible.. Some cable suggestions are RG59 for lengths up to 100 feet. For longer lengths, consider a BBC specification known as PSF 1/3. (MORE)
\nYou should be able to go about 100' with RG-56 with little or no problems.
\n . About 100 feet for minor loss to about 500-700ft for total loss. However VGA signals are extremely volatile to EMI. So shielding, copper quality, and gold plated caps will make a difference. . With good quality, low loss 75 Ohm coax cables, the maximum length can be several hundred feet with …a minimal loss. The cable will be expensive, bulky and will need correctly terminating at each end to perform properly. Distances in excess of 400 feet have been handled with this technique with no noticeable losses and without additional hardware drivers. Note that this technique uses four or five separate cables and it is no longer a single VGA cable. . With an additional line driver, total lengths in excess of 1000 feet are also possible. . You may not want to run VGA cable more than 100' . If so use a VGA over Cat6 solution. This will often provide a lower cost solution for long distances but it is important that the CAT6 converter system provides for signal skew adjustment. The adjustment is needed because CAT5 and CAT6 cables are constructed in a way that results in a longer cable length on some signals compared to others. The difference in length is sufficient to be seen as misaligned red, green and blue images on the display. When the adjustment is made, signals are delayed by the correct amount of time to bring the images in line once more. Many of the less expensive VGA over CAT5 systems do not have the adjustment or have a very limited adjustment. Make sure that you are aware of the maximum adjustments available before purchasing. . Note that CAT6 transmission is still using the analog signal and therefore, can suffer similar losses to those seen with co-ax cable. . (MORE)
The technical specification for Cat5e specifies a total length of 100 meters (about 328 feet).. This usually breaks down (during design) to 90 meters of 'structured cable' (cable that is permanently installed from one point to another) and ten meters (33 feet) of connecting cables for the ends.. T…his isn't the complete answer however. The Cat 5e specification is less about length and more about performance. It's quite possible that a cable can be shorter than 100m and still not meet the Cat 5e standard.. The most common cause is poor installation. A cable that bends too sharply deforms the wiring inside and can cause the signal sent on one wire to interfere with the signal on another. Cable that is not properly terminated can cause loss of data because of poor connections or wire to wire interference.. On the other hand, if you simply ignore the arbitrary length limit and concentrate on proper installation methods, you can easily obtain Cat 5e PERFORMANCE well beyond the stated 100 meters. (MORE)
That depends on what you will be using the cable for. In general, the higher the frequency of the signal being sent down the cable, the shorter the cable has to be. The environment of the cable is also important. If the cable is in an electrically noisy environment, it needs to be shorter. …There are various standards that specify the maximum length of a cable. Sometimes it will work (some of the time) if you use a longer piece of cable, but following the standard is much more likely to work correctly all the time. Some examples from computer networking standars: For 10BASE-T Ethernet, the maximum length of a cable is 100 meters. Note that this standard was defined for Cat 3 cable, so you'll probably be able to use Cat 5e cable to send the signal further. However, there's no standard specifying how much further - you'll probably have to test it yourself. For 100BASE-T Ethernet, the maximum length is also 100 meters, but the cable grade is specified as Cat 5 (not Cat 5e). So you might be able to make a longer run work with Cat 5e. For 1000BASE-T Ethernet, again the maximum length is 100 meters, but now the cable must be Cat 5e. Also, all four pairs of the cable are used, whereas in the other two standards only two pairs are used. HTH, Gdunge (MORE)
It depends on the TYPE of interface, meaning, if it's a USB cable it can only be a MAXIMUM of 5 Meters long. However, USB repeaters can be bought for about $20 that extend that cable 16ft. You can piggyback the repeaters but this is expensive. 36ft cables A-B also exist for about $45. In extreme c…ases you can also buy a USB over CAT5 adapters that will send that signal up to 350ft! These retail around $80 and your average CAT5 cable is $20-40 for a 100ft to 350ft length. IEEE1284 DB25 to Cenntronics (Old Style) cables come in 100ft lengths however there are 5 standards of communication SPP, ECP, EPP etc... the higher speeds dont like being extended past 25ft but this varies due to cable impedance and controler output. It may be wise to use a USB over CAT5 extender and then a USB to Centronics adapter if this needed to be longer then 50ft. I have been selling these solutions for the past 15years and know I am right. =) (MORE)
PATA cables have a maximum length barrier of 18-inches (46 cm).. This information is readily available through google.
It's depends on what kind of amplifier. . The following is longest HDMI cable that I had been seen. . 30AWG: 30 meters . 28AWG: 45 meters . 24AWG: 79meters . Testing conditional: 1920*1200*60Hz*32 on 21"LCD displaypass.
The BNC ( Bayonet Neill Concelman ) connector is a very common type of RF connector used for terminating coaxial cable. There is no predetemined maximum length for the coax cable. The maximum length of cable is going to be governed by determining the input signal level, the minimum output sig…nal level, and the signal loss based on the length of the cable between the input and minimum output.

I would not go over about 25', otherwise you will have loss of the signal strength.
The maximum length for a parallel cable is 15 feet. The maximum length for USB is also 15 feet, but with powered hubs in between, you can stretch the distance to about 90 feet.
A single FireWire 400 cable is limited to 4.5Â metres (14.8Â ft). Up to 16 cables can be chained together but they require repeaters at each connection to boost the signal.\n. \nA FireWire 800 cable can be up to 100Â metres (110Â yd).
\nCo-ax cable is typically used to carry high speed data such as television signals, computer data etc. Assuming that the cable is installed properly and terminated into the right connectors and equipment, it is capable of running long distances. The final distance depends very much on the data ra…te. The higher the bandwidth, the shorter the length will be. For example, analog standard definition television will run 1000 feet or more on a good quality cable. Broadcast standard digital SD video can run almost the same distance but HD video is limited to around 300 feet. The losses at high frequencies are greater than at low frequencies so the faster data rate becomes more limited.\n. \nAlso, the type of cable is a big factor. Poor cable can limit a run to, say, 100 feet while a better quality cable will carry the same signal in excess of 1000 feet.\n. \nFor almost all residential applications, there should never be a problem with cable length.

Using larger wire (lower AWG) will limit the loss in the cables. If you need to run a long length, use the biggest wire that will fit.
Parallel cables are typically used to connect a printer to acomputer. It is a long cord with a broad, flat plug on either end.The recommended maximum length of a parallel cord is 6 feet.
Smaller = Faster, my cellphone receives archives faster using a direct connection than with the supplied cable. The ideal would be a direct connection to the device (like on the pendrives). USB's max cable lenght is around 5 meters, more than that, use an HUB to power it up
The maximum allowed length of a Cat-6 cable is 100 meters (330 ft) when used for 10/100/1000baseT. This consists of 90 meters (300 ft) of solid "horizontal" cabling between the patch panel and the wall jack, plus 10 meters (33 ft) of stranded patch cable between each jack and the attached device. Si…nce stranded cable has higher attenuation than solid cable, exceeding 10 meters of patch cabling will reduce the permissible length of horizontal cable. When used for 10GbaseT, Cat-6 cable's maximum length is 55 meters (180 ft) in a favorable alien crosstalk environment, but only 37 meters (120 ft) in a hostile alien crosstalk environment such as when many cables are bundled together. 10GbaseT runs of up to 100 meters (330 ft) are permissible using Cat-6a.

The CD in CSMA/CD stands for "collision detection." Since multiple devices (potentially) share the same network (the MA or "multiple access" portion of the name) when they are sending data, there must be a way to tell if two devices are trying to send at the same time (a "collision"). The way that a… typical CSMA/CD protocol such as Ethernet does this is by having each device "listen" during its own transmission. If it "hears" another device starting to send while it is already sending, it stops and tries again after some delay. Part of this is defining a minimum packet length that is long enough that, for a given length of wire, any given sender can be sure that the beginning message got all the way to the other sender before it assumes there was no collision and that it succeeded in sending the packet. Even at nearly the speed of light, it takes some time for that signal to go down the wire. With 10 Base-T Ethernet (10 million bits/second), the 64 byte minimum would take long enough that the signal could get a kilometer down the line before the first sender was done. With 100 Base-TX, the same minimum only gets 1/10 the distance (100m) because the bits are being sent out ten times faster. With gigabit Ethernet, they actually had to increase the minimum packet length just to make sure that the cable length could stay at 100m. (MORE)
An "infrared cable" does not exist. Infrared is a wavelength of light and is used as a form of wireless transmission. You may be thinking of an infrared blaster. An infrared blaster is a wire with an infrared transmitter on one that is taped to the front of one device to emulate a remote control and… is connected to another device, such as a VCR. There is no standardized length for such a cable. Since the data carried on it is serialized, likely does not need to be transmitted very fast, and is likely unshielded, such a wire could theoretically be used for several hundred feet. (MORE)
There are cables up to 50 feet for sale, but if you want to modify one yourself, you can make it as long as you want, if you have enough wire (try using telephone wire). You can also get wireless controllers, and wireless AV connections.
There are many problems associated with that. The worst one is signal attenuation. Your signal will be lost on its way with all consequences. If you want to use UTP for distances longer than 100 m you need to use an extender.
Yes, Cable length is always printed on the cable wire. As I haverecently checked cables of peterstechnology.com cable length wasprinted with ISI certification mark & it's company logo. Soanyone can easily recognize the medical cable. Thank you
40 Pins and 80 wires. Maximum recommended length is 18" but can purchase 24" cables.
There are two different ways of looking at this. The maximum length from end to end from the telecommunications closet to the wor karea device is 100 meters. The horizontal cable itself is usually a maximum of 90 meters, with 10 meters maximum from the wall plate to the device in the work area.
50 feet is quoted as a maximum cable length for RS232 but that limit has been extended in practical applications to far longer distances. The practical limit depends on the data rate, the type of cable and the environment in which it is installed. RS232 is being replaced by other communication inte…rfaces so although it can be extended further than the strict limit quoted by the standard, long cables will normally use other methods. (MORE)

longest i have seen in a store was 100ft but if you need longer get a roll of Ethernet cable and 3 ends for it then make your own length of cable.
Roughly about 325 feet or 100 meters. That is the suggested maximum length. Some installations have achieved longer. The longer it is, the less reliable it is (ie packet delivery problems). You could throw a switch in the middle to achieve 600 feet if needed.
It depends on the material of the cable (aluminum or copper) and the gauge of the cable. (Thickness). And on the current you intend it to carry.
SDI is the broadcast standard for video links within studios. It is a digital format that can be used for both SD and HD signals. The maximum length of cable depends on a number of factors. First, the cable quality affects the amount of signal loss over a given length. The better the cable, the lon…ger the cable can be. Next, the quality of the signal receiver defines the amount of loss that can be tolerated. The better the automatic gain and equalization of the input, the more losses can be handled. Most broadcast equipment use one of a handful of receiver ICs that all perform in a similar way. Finally, HD signals show far higher losses than SD signals. As a guide, HD signals can typically handle up to 100 meters (300 feet) while SD signals will often tolerate 300 - 400 meters (1000 - 1200 feet). When selecting a cable, check the signal losses in the data sheet and use data rates of 270Mbit or 360Mbit per second for SD signals and 1.483Gbit per second for HD signals. The cables will be terminated with BNC connectors. Always make sure that the connector is chosen to suit the cable. There are many connector types and the wrong one will adversely affect the signal quality. Finally, make sure the minimum cable bend radius is not exceeded. Bending the cable too tightly can also adversely affect the signal quality. As long as the cables and connectors are chosen correctly, SDI provides a simple and robust link between equipment. (MORE)
Depends on what type of media. Usually Cat5 is used for long distances because it is cheep.
The maximum length of a segment is usually 100 meters. In practice, it's a good idea to stay under 90 m for fixed cables, since patch cables at either end are likely to add another several meters to the overall length.
100 meters or 328 feet unless a repeater (such as a switch or a router) is placed inline.
The various types of Ethernet twisted pair cable. All categories of Ethernet cable (5, 5e, 6, and 6a (sometimes improperly called 6e)) have a maximum length of 100 meters (328 feet) as distances beyond that experience too much loss of signal to be useful for networking purposes.. Now having said t…his, the practical maximum length can be cut much shorter due to interference from high-voltage power lines, crimps or twists in the cable runs, or bad sections within the cable. As such, it is always best to test each run to insure that it is functional before relying on it in a production environment. Further, it is highly advisable to run a second cable when installing long cables so as to save time and hassle later in case one of the two cables either is bad or goes bad over time. In that case, it is a simple issue of terminating the second cable (if it hasn't been already) and getting back up and running. This is a common practice professional network engineers and electricians employ.. The differences in each of the categories of cable have to do with the frequencies of signal for which they are designed and, therefore, the maximum throughput speed that they can deliver. Specifically, the standards are:. Category 5: 100 MHz, 100 Mbps (Gigabit is possible but at shorter lengths only). Category 5e: 100 MHz, 1 Gbps. Category 6: 250 MHz, 1 Gbps (10 Gbps is possible but at shorter lengths only). Category 6a: 500 MHz, 10 Gbps. There are also cables allegedly labelled category 7 and 7a but they are not yet recognized by the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) and, therefore, are not mentioned further in this answer..
