REFERENCE / SDI Maximum Cable Distance Chart

SDI Maximum Cable Distance Chart

Maximum values represent the approximate range at which the bit error rate "cliff region" will occur.

In every system, the quality of the output pulse, the amount of loss that can be compensated for by the receiver, the number of passive connectors and patch points, and the exact amount cable loss will vary. Because of this, the exact maximum cable length possible will vary. The above graphs do not represent the exact cable length possible; they only serve as a guide in selecting the appropriate cable type. When installing a cable in a system and it is approaching its maximum range, it is highly recommended that individual system testing and research be done.
