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 to 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.
The current maximum length for a serial cable is around 50 meters. Different cables have length limits with the maximum varying.
Cat 5/5e/6 cable has a maximum installed length of 100m, but that is a written standard, not an operational maximum.
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.
100 Meters is the maximum segment length.
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.
It depends on the quality of the cable used.
The maximum length for a printer cable is 1 thousand million metres.
The maximum length of a cat 5 e cable with out a repeater is 100meters
The maximum recommended length for a UTP Cat5 cable is 100 metres
15 Feet (4.572 meters)
Three meters (about ten feet) is the recommended maximum length.
What is the maximum UTP cable distance for Fast Ethernet?
Scsi Cable (or more commonly know as the ribbon cable)
The BNC (Bayonet Neill Concelman) connectoris 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 signal level, and the signal loss based on the length of the cable between the input and minimum output.
