  • LAN cable for Roland VP300 length

    Posted by Jean Oakley on October 29, 2020 at 2:00 pm

    Hi my trusty VP300 can only go in one place in my office and i need to move my PC. I will need to buy a longer cable to reach it and was wondering if anyone uses a 10mt cable for this. At the moment it has a 3mt cable but i just cant configure the room to keep it. Its a real pain but if i know the printer can run fine on the longer length then i can get on with ordering it. Many thanks for reading jean

    We use 10m cables with our Epsons, so I would have thought it would be OK.

    Good Cat5 cables are good for the best part of 300′. Hopefully, your office is too large for this, and you’ll need a network switch in the middle (/humour)

    Measure up the run you need for the cable, add a few metres for moving things around for maintenance, then get a decent Cat6 patch cable. cablemonkey.co.uk
