What is the maximum serial cable length for console connections between appliances and devices?

The appliance has been tested to make serial connections over unshielded cat6 at 1000 feet. Based on that, serial connections over Cat5 should be able to travel at least 500 ft.

There are several factors that might shorten those lengths. In a noisy electrical environment, shielded cable might become necessary. Transceivers can also be added to increase run length.
