S-Link SL10 RS232 over cat5e/6, 3280 ft.
Extend your RS232 signal more than 3200 feet using a single cat5e/6 cable. The S-Link provides easy RS-232 extension at a fraction of the cost of that length of serial cable.
Does the Type of Cat5e or Cat6 Cable You Use Matter?
Since Cat5e/Cat6 extenders (aka Baluns) work differently than typical ethernet networks, the quality of the network cable you use really does matter. The bottom line is that Ethernet networks have corrective measures in place to help balance the data load and prevent packet loss, while point-to-point extenders like this don't have this option. For this reason, using cable with extra shielding and extra-robust conductors (like our PureRun Cat6 Cable) to overcome any potential attenuation issues is recommended.
